Problem printing a file in Libre Office
January 27, 2014 4:01 PM   Subscribe

I'm running LibreOffice 4.1.2.3 on OS X 10.9.1. I have two .doc documents in separate files of one page each with identical formatting parameters. When printing these files, one is fine while the other is reduced in size as if to fit it on the page. There's some glich in the second file that prevents it from printing full sized. Does anyone know why this is happening and can offer a workaround so I can print these files? The printer is a Brother HL 2170W.

Perhaps try to copy and paste the contents of the second file into a fresh, new file and then print. Whenever I have problems with Microsoft Word documents, it sometimes comes down to hidden template issues that I will never be able to directly fix, except to create a new document and copy text and other elements from the "broken" document to the new document. Perhaps that would help you within LibreOffice.

Sometimes when I've had similar problems I've saved the file as a PDF then printed. I have no idea why it's happening though.
