Hi :)
LibreOffice seems to have some weird way of organising the printers and it
looks like that is causing problems.  You are not the first person to run
into this problem.

Hopefully someone here can help!
Apols, good luck and regards from
Tom :)

Thanks for the tips but the problem persists.

I installed LO just a couple of days ago and it is version
running in Win 10 Home with no problems so far.

I have now uninstalled Office, it was the trial copy so no payments yet,
but expired and could only read files after that.

My printer HP laserjet P1102W has been printing correctly all along,
only that Writer still does not print images.  Also, something that I
didn't mention earlier, at the very top margin, it prints what it seems
to be the bottom part of some text.  I'll attach a scan of the
printout.  If I increase the font of the text, the very top half hidden
text prints bigger too.  I am attaching a scan of the printout (I'm not
sure if this will show in the forum).
The image should have been printed right after the text.

I have uninstalled LO and installed it again but all the same.  What I
have not done is the removing of the user config
profile, where can I find this?

If I export the file to pdf the image appears. If I use the print option
"microsoft print to PDF", the image does not appear.

hi, I have just installed LibreOffice 5 in Win10.

When printing a Writer document the images are not printed, only the
The option "pictures and objects" is checked in Printer Setup/ options
Also, in Tools /options the same option is active.

If I print the document to PDF, the image does not appear either.
The image is a.jpg file.  I have not tried other image formats but I
am sure
I will use .jpg frequently so I'd like to solve this.

I have a HP laserjet and always has printed images from MS Word.
 Word has
expired so I installed LO as replacement.

Any ideas on how to solve this?



Which version of LO 5 are you using?
5.0.2, 5.0.1, or 5.0.0?
It would help us narrow down which version has given you the printer

Have you tried to uninstall LibreOffice and remove the user config
profile, then reinstall LO?  Whenever I have a printer issue with
LibreOffice, it seems that there was a corrupt printer setting somewhere
in the user profile files.  This happened with Windows and Linux systems.

I just upgraded my Windows 10/pro laptop to LibreOffice
I printed a letter size paper sign with an image - to a HP Laserjet

I do have the same "pictures and images" option checked.

Works fine for me.  I have not seen any issues with either .jpg or .png
files on my Win10/home or my Ubuntu Linux 15.04 laptops running 5.0.x.

Actually I have been creating, and printing, posters/signs with a large
.jpg image/photo/graphic as the page background "bitmap" file.  Of
course I have been using colored printers - Canon MG6220 and a wide
format HP Officejet 7000.  I have had no issues with printing these
images.  I print them directly from Writer or via a PDF file and its
default viewer/printer package.

Just wondering, have you uninstalled the MS Office packages, since
it/they have expired?
You should, if you do not want to pay up to use MS Office/Word again.
