One thing you didn't mention is that the option you are specifying is only
available if the "Use LibreOffice Dialogs" is chosen under Options (cf my
earlier post, and why I think the choice of printing dialogs is an important
thing to mention when reporting printing issues).
That's odd. In LO 4.3.5 on my Opensuse setup, and earlier ones as I recall, the choice of LO versus OS dialogs doesn't affect whether the PDF or Postscript option appears under the device tab of print properties. I'll have to check on other systems I have access to in order to see there is a difference. One thing I've just noticed is that under Tools-Options-Print, it's possible to deselect PDF and the standard print format, and then the printers default to postscript. Very useful when dealing with oddities of HP drivers.

I must say I had never noticed that pdf/postscript option before (probably
because I use the O/S printing dialogs just to keep consistent with other
apps I regularly use, so that option doesn't appear), and I look forward to
seeing whether and how switching to to Postscript changes the behavior I

I notice that there are several options for Postscript (PS Levels 1, 2 & 3,
and PS from Driver). I assume that you are suggesting to use "PS from
Driver." My HP 6700 is pretty new, but do you have any recommendation or
thoughts regarding that choice?


I just use postscript from driver. Since it worked for me, I've not felt any urgent need to explore the others, though I certainly would if there were still problems.
