Today, I was working on a 11x17 inch tabloid paper poster.  I am using
Ubuntu 16.04 MATE 64bit running LO  The paper size of the
document was the tabloid size.  When I went to print the document to my
HP printer [13x19 inch max] the paper size drop down menu was grayed out
and set for US Letter size.
Did you try to check the third option in the Option tab of the print
dialog : "Use only paper size from printer preferences" ?

Best regards.

Yes.  That worked.

However, it does not seem to be a global setting. It appears one must set this option for each print, or at least for each document if the setting is embedded in the document. I have not tested that. A global setting option does not seem to be in the Tools > Options > Print menu. How does one set this as the default?

BTW, On my LO, it is the 4th option down. My 3rd option is "Use only paper _tray_ from printer preferences".

OK, to answer several posts . . .

I do not have the HP printer set for tabloid in the Ubuntu printer driver settings - set for Letter, even though it has tabloid paper in the tray.

NO I do not have any settings stating to use only the loaded printer paper size.

One quirk is, now that I exported to PDF as a tabloid paper size, now the paper size box that is grayed out shows 11x17 inch [tabloid] size paper, not letter size, for the tabloid sized document. NOW, the grayed out paper size is showing Letter size for the letter size document. SO, it looks like there is some quirky bug somewhere, either in LO or in the Ubuntu printer drivers.
