Thanks Mark.  I checked that setting, and it doesn’t seem to make a difference whether that setting 
is checked or not.

I also noticed that all of these files are MS Word .doc files, as opposed to the LibreOffice format 
(I believe that is .ODF).

A couple of thoughts...

Some printer information seems to be saved in the document. I find
that if the document is saved after printing, and the same printer is
still available next time you print it, that one is selected by
default. If the printer has been removed, or the document is opened on
a different system where that printer doesn't exist, it probably
selects the system default.

Some applications remember the last printer you used, and select it by
default regardless of the system default. I think Firefox does that.
Don't know if LibreOffice does.


Also, in options>load/save there is a tick box "Load Printer settings
with the document".
