Most printers seem to be hard-coded to leave a 4-5mm "white-space"
border at the edge of pages so if you encroach into that then you'll
lose some of what you are printing. The Pdf route probably attempts
to shrink the whole image a little to account for that.
If LO is set to A4 but the Operating System is set to "US Letter" that
might explain some of the other issues. Err, or the other way
Are you using Xp or Win8 or Ubuntu or Mac or which OS? Knowing that
might help others here to set-up the right configs in that and in LO.
Do other documents (or the same ones) have problems in other programs?
LO does seem to have something odd about it's printing configs but
hopefully people here can help!
Good luck and regards from

I want to print a two-page A4 document, the first page being

so that LO
Writer displays them properly. On printing these two pages I
1) the second (landscape) page is printed in portrait with the
the right being cut off
In fact, the problem is even more primitive: it seems that LO
print any page formatted in landscape.
2) the page margins (default 2x2x2x2 cm) are not respected. At
top margin is ignored (= 0 cm) on the printed page. The left
seems OK, if a bit tight (=1.9 cm)
Two different printers (one Brother, one HP) both give me a
confirm that the problem seems to lie with LO.
If I print the document to a pdf file, the result looks
perfect on the
screen, and indeed, with respect to the two problems above,
printed result looks OK. However, since the characters printed
out on paper
are not all identical to those in the pdf file, depending on
of font, I have decided to abandon the 'print to file
the time being, to concentrate on the direct printing variant.
Can anyone tell me what is going on in LO Writer and what the
