Today, I was working on a 11x17 inch tabloid paper poster. I am using
Ubuntu 16.04 MATE 64bit running LO 188.8.131.52. 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
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" ?
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 184.108.40.206, 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
NO I do not have any settings stating to use only the loaded printer
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.
