Description Jonathan Kamens 2005-06-21 23:00:34 EDT
When I print the attached OpenOffice Impress file, it tells me that it's bigger
than the "print range" and needs to be shrunk.

Print range isn't defined anywhere in the documentation.  The documentation
doesn't say where OO gets the "print range" dimensions from.  I can't figure out
where it's getting it from, and in any case it's wrong.

If I tell it I want to "Trim" the document rather than fitting it, the document
prints just fine.  What's annoying is that I have to do this every single time I
print -- there's no way to make this setting sticky so OO will stop asking me
about it.

I have 1.9.109-1.2.0.fc5.

Incidentally, the printer driver has a defined imageable area margin of 36
points on each side.  I wonder if this is where CUPS is getting its "print
range" from.  It's difficult to know what to set these values to in
system-config-printer, since they aren't documented anywhere (including in the
HTML page that comes up if you click on "Help" on the "Queue Options" page where
these options are set).

OOo gets this information from CUPS as to what part of the page is addressable
by the printer, if the margins set by the user are outside this range it gives
the above error. AFAIK you can't/shouldn't override this area because your
printer cannot physically print to that part of the page, or at least so the
definition for the printer claims.
