Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 166904
openoffice.org-impress print offset to left
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:12 EST
Description of problem:
printing on impress is offset to the left by about an inch. This is a small job
on US letter, landscape. Tried two other files. Same result.
Also on both impress and writer, the print dialogue does not allow you to
specify a Page Range.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
The printer test page from system-config-printer is centered correctly, as is
out put from other programs - including openoffice.org-writer.
The range problem is bug 166290 and fixed in rawhide 1.9.125-4, can you attach a
sample document which prints offset just to help verify the offset problem
works for me. I think I need to see a sample document which causes this. Does it
also happen when you export to pdf ? If so attaching sample pdf output as well
Trying to generate an example made me realize it's different than what I
thought. I received by email attachment a power point presentation set up for
slides - 10" by 7.5". ( power point calls this "slide show".) On power point
this prints centered on US letter. On impress it's offset left by about an 1/2
If I change the page size on impress Format -> Page -> Pager -> Format to US
letter it prints correctly.
So it's not a printer issue per se. OTOH, even if oo doesn't want to center it (
bug? feature? ) it shouldn't cut off a portion of a *smaller* page size,
especially if it's reasonably common on powerpoint.
I do understand this is really on oo issue, not fedora. Thanks for any help you
can give me 'cause I really like impress.
This might be an import from ppt issue, or something similiar, e.g. US paper
size feature in powerpoint which we should also have, but not noticed because
all developers use A4 :-). Can you attach a sample ppt document which
demonstrates this ?
It's probably best to log this bug against qa.openoffice.org, do you have a
sample .ppt that demonstrates this on import to impress ? and then I can do this.
