When printing a page that has a certain page format (format/page/page/format listbox) with paper settings in the printer settings dialog set to a page format that our printer can do, the first setting takes precedence -- I would consider this a bug, given what the competition word processors do. In M$-Word, I think that a change of paper format in the printer settings causes the page to be reformatted (also ugly IMHO, but at least a network printer prints something at all...) The Postscript output contains a <</PageSize [width height]]>> setpagedevice instruction. Maybe, one could simply choose width/height based on the printer settings dialog, and the layout width and height from format/page/page/format listbox, and show a warning dialog when such a document is going to be printed...

confirming as a new enhancement issue. The page on screen still stays the same 8.5 x 11 default size.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
