Description ccheney 2008-03-15 23:44:17 UTC
Using OO spreadsheet (but appears to happen for all of OOo). Paper is set to
letter, orientation set to landscape. Preview and printing both remain in
portrait mode.

Format->Page - Orientation

File->Print->Properties - Orientation

File->Printer Settings->Properties - Orientation

OOo appears to disregard what is set in the Printer Properties and uses whatever
is set in Format->Page.

Perhaps the bug is that it shouldn't let the user think they can change
orientation in the printer driver?

The same is true for all other settings you can make there. These settings have

However this is the case since OOo 1.0.0 and does not seem to be a big point of
