Just tried to post a question on the AskLO forum page. I don’t think
I’ll use that again - I need “points” to post a picture (WHY?) and
the link to a picture is totally un-intuitive.

Two problems here. 1. In Print>Paper Handling the suggested paper
size is US Legal, although every setting I can find is UK and A4. Why
2. The brochure prints ok, but the text is reduced in size, i.e.
doesn't fit the page as in the attached picture link.
How do I get a) the suggested paper size to A4, and b) how to get the
pages to appear full-size in the brochure?
I am not sure of either of your issues with your printer and page,
but, I print in brochure format quite often with my early music group
for concert program booklets. Here are the settings I use for US
letter size that allows me to use the full width of the pages ... note
that I am in Canada, where US Letter is the default paper size.
However, you may be able to juggle some of the page settings around to
fit an A4 page correctly. The point is that, the settings that I use
allow the use of the full size of the brochure page (down to the page
Here are my settings for Format->Page
Page layout: Right and Left
If you want a footer, then on the Footer tab
Same content left/right: checkmarked
Same content on first page: checkmarked
Left margin: 0.00cm
Right margin: 0.00cm
Use dynamic spacing: NOT checkmarked
Height: 0.51 cm
AutoFit height: checkmarked
Hope this helps a bit.
I could not get the brochure settings to work on my Ubuntu 16.04 and
Canon MG 6220 and 5320 inkjet printers. The printout seems to make the
printing to look like it is printed out in 4 or 6 point font size
instead of 14 or 16 point, just like it would look with the print of 2
or 4 pages per side [ HP Laserjet printing setting - Properties > job
options > pages per side ]
Since my printers [all of them] have troubles with small margin sizes, I
tend to use the "Borderless Letter" for my posters and single-page
fliers. I wish LO could have the "borderless" option. I need to create a
PDF file and then choose the borderless paper option I need for 8.5x11,
8.5x14, 11x17, 13x19, inches. I make posters in all of those sizes, and
4x6 and 8.5x11 photo paper sizes.
When I get some time, I will try out your settings. They look good, but
will need to see what they are in inches and not centimeters.
I have been using LO since the first version of LO when It came out of
"RC". I do not know even a tenth of what LO can do. These lists help
with the "functions" that I do not know or could not get working on my own.
By-the-by - - Which do you use for the folding style of the brochures?
Z-fold or what I call "C-fold" where one "flap" is folded inside the
other one. I have used both many times. Those which gets mailed
without an envelope, get the C-fold. I also make 11x17 tabloid paper
into newsletters and fold the sheets so they can be mailed without an
envelope as well. The is one of the reasons I bought the large format
printer. Been printing original copies for newsletters since 1990's +/-
in letter size paper and originals in tabloid size paper since a few
I currently use 3 Canon inkjet printers - 5320, 5420, 6220. I use HP
printers - Officejet 7000 E809a and Laserjet 2300dtn. Of these
printers, only the Officejet does not duplex though the Laserjet
sometimes jams with duplexing while paper feeding next blank sheet.
