thanks. It got worse now... the new version of LO crashes on loading, looks
like I'm going to go clean everything up, and then maybe go back to a prior
version, so in the process, I should be creating new config files as well.

Most of the time when printing from LO, I get multiple copies, and I have

At one point I thought it might be a printer problem, but it does not
happen when I print from Adobe Reader or other applications, only from LO

Does anyone have any insight???

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.
