All I can think is to check that the number of copies is set to 1 when
printing. That may sound obvious, but there are two places it can be
set, which might catch you out. After going to File > Print, click the
General tab and select the required printer. Then:
1. Make sure "Number of copies" on the dialog itself is set to "1".
2. Click "Properties...". This brings up the printer-specific
properties, where there is also usually an option to set a number of
copies (check all the tabs - it varies by printer).
Set any other options as needed, and click OK to print as usual.
These two settings operate separately... In the past, I've ended up
with 9 copies instead of 3, when I set LibreOffice to print 3 copies
and set the printer properties to print 3 copies (thinking changing
the option in LibreOffice should have updated that option for the
printer). It turns out that makes LibreOffice send 3 copies to the
printer, which then prints those 3 copies 3 times!
I wonder if you have a glitch in your config file[s] that define
printing with LibreOffice. I do not remember the document location, but
if you close LO and save the config file[s] location to a new name, then
open LO again, LO will build a new set of configuration data.
I had this issue a few years where LO was stuck on printing pages as if
I set it to print 4 pages per sheet and then defined it so only one
quarter of the page is printed and the rest of the sheet is left blank.
I could not get the settings to take hold so it would print properly.
When I had LO recreate a fresh configuration the problem was fixed.
To be honest, I have had this happen a few times, but not in the past
year or so. This method was the easiest way for me to fix the printer
issue/glitch that happened. Also, LO was not the only package that has
done this, but at least I did not have to remove and reinstall the whole
package to get the printer problems fixed.
