Description acolvin 2004-05-22 09:33:45 UTC
I have a series of pages (8 in total) and tried to print as a brochure. This failed with only pages 1 and 8 printing. I therefore decided to print to PDF (PDF printer) and view the PDF in a viewer. The PDF created had the correct document pages layed out in the correct printed page location, however, the first printed page was laid out as Landscape. The 2nd and 3rd as portrait and the 4th (and last) again as Landscape. This did not happen with version 1.1

Can supply the PDF created but do not wish to post as it is 3.9M

OK, the 4th page has the same layout like Page 1 and 8 but it works. Please look if there is another diffrence with p.4 to p.1 and p.8 like is it right or left side... Please provide the pdf file to visualize it for me.

Created attachment 15412 [details] page 1 landscape, p2 portrait, p3 portrait, p4 landscape - not good for duplex printing

Tried to reproduce this with an 8 page document with just text and failed and then started adding pictures and couldn't reproduce error. I have therefore attached the sxw file in case it is being caused by an error within it.

Ok, have done further investigation and have discovered that the layout breaks after the contour is added to the picture on page one. This may be the underlying fault and requires further investigation. Have not used contours in a brochure document before and so would not have noticed this in previous versions of OO.

I've tried to build such doc and was able to print without problem. Do you have this behavior without mix of Landscape- and Portrait-Layout also?
Comment 8 acolvin 2004-05-26 12:16:25 UTC
OK just spent another hour investigating and it seems that it goes wrong when there is no text on the page. This actually needs to be no text on either page of the brochure document that get printed together. As soon as there is one character for a page then it is alright. It seems that I sent you down the wrong path. It is nothing to do with contours or pictures. If you create an 8 page document and the numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 on the corresponding page. Now remove the numbers 2 and 7 and print to the pdf (landscape, brochure, short edge) converter and the second page in the PDF will be portrait. I shall attach the almost empty file explained above. Sorry for any time that you have wasted to date.

HI->PL: See the comments of acolvin from Wed May 26 => Reproducible and strange. Occurs also in 1.1rc5 and current 680.
