Description Heldwin 2014-07-24 09:11:38 UTC
Description of problem:
The landscape is broken, and when I print they are printed some pages are printed in portrait and others in landscape.

If I install libreoffice, I don't have this problem, so it is a change in that seems to break it (possibly the fdo#80911: toggle fallback paper sizes when they are already in landscape mode), because if I install the problem reappears.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open writer, put the pages in landscape
2. add some text, [ctrl][enter], add some text in the 2nd page
3. try to print, in preview in the left, switch pages (back and forth

Actual results:
When you switch in the preview:
Page 1: landscape
Page 2: landscape
then back to Page 1: portrait

When you print, not all pages are in landscape

Expected results:
All pages are printed in landscape if they are all in landscape

It does that problem portrait/landscape too in calc, for the same versions. doesn't do it, but does it.

(I had deleted the openoffice profil for the user)

Just updated to libreoffice- and found problem still exists.

Printing 2 page landscape document on Brother HL5340D in duplex. Sometimes page 1 is portrait, sometimes page 2.
Little preview in print window also inconsistent, sometimes shows portrait sometimes landscape.
Tested again after removing ~/.config/libreoffice but same result.
