Hi Mike,

Unfortunately I don't seem to have any choice in the matter. Whatever
page size I set (format|page) is /always/ transferred automatically to
printer settings, and shows up there greyed out and unchangeable. When I
set 'brochure', the format changes to landscape, and the paper size
stays the same, with the contents printing scaled down. This is with BTW.

(The printer itself isn't an issue, btw; but thanks for the thought.
I've long since worked out which way to twist things between out and in
trays to make double-sided come out right!!)

Do you work on Windows? If not, then printing is more difficult. You
might need a Linux or Mac user then to help you.

Sorry; should have mentioned this is on linux (Mint qiana). I rather assumed the problem would be OS-independent.

Do you have got a setting to toggle between system print dialog and LO
print dialog? (This option does not exist on Windows.)

Do you now how to do an administrative installation? Then testing Lo5.1
might be an options.

You can try, export to pdf and use print dialog of Acrobat Reader, which
is really good.

But not on linux :-)

I've a selection of ps and pdf tools available, which can help -- so I do have a workaround (although at present I'm working scaled-up and letting LO scale things down again).

But given LO has the brochure facility, it really ought to work consistently. If I can work out how without blowing the system apart, I'll perhaps try reverting to V4.x and see what happens.

(To answer another reply; multicolumn certainly has its uses, but can't re-order pages as needed.)
