Description amessina 2007-11-15 10:26:51 UTC
I am using OO in Fedora 7 & 8.  When creating an envelope, it is created 
properly, but regardless of the settings I use to alter the orientation of the 
print, OO wants to rotate the printed page -90 degrees instead of 90 degrees, 
so the envelope prints on the wrong side of the paper tray and the Sender gets 
cut off because it's the last part to be printed.

This only occurs in Linux; when I use OO on Windows, the envelopes print as I 
tell them to in the envelope print dialog.

Please provide a sample to evaluate, Thanks.

What type of sample are you looking for?  Screenshot? The actual paper that 
prints out?

I'm not sure how to provide a useful sample to you. Please advise.

This issue (which i can confirm as a bug) could also be regarded as an RFE and
become a follow-up to the CWS printerpullpages.

Setting a more specific target of 3.3

This is still an issue in AOO 4.0.1. See bug 124737 updates for a possible work-around: Set the Text Direction under Format->Page to Right-to-Left Vertical and fix the margins.
