Since 3.3.0 it's not possible to print A3 landscape any more if. The program breaks the page layout and drop parts of the page.

- Set page size to A3, landscape.
- Fill one line with text.
- Go to the printing dialog.
- Go to the printers properties, set page size to A3 and choose a cassette.
- After closing the printer properties dialog, the preview page shows not any more the A3 proportions. It shows just a sqare format. And exactly what you see in the preview, is what is printed. About 1/3 of the page got lost!

(I added a PDF with screenshots of the steps so it should be easier to reproduce).

This problem first appears in 3.3.0.

It doesn't exist in any version before and in no other program.

This problem is not related to any special printer. It happens with every printer I have tried and that is able to print on A3 (like Sharp MX-2600n, Xerox Document Center 230, HP Color LaserJet 8500,...)

Just for information:
LibreOffice 3.3.0 had the same bug. But it's fixed in LibreOffice 3.4.1.

I hope it would be fixed in OOo, too.

getting rid of value "enhancement" for field "severity".
For enhancement the field "issue type" shall be used.
