[tdf-discuss] Re: strange page orientation problem

i try to upgrade all my OOo users to LO, but encounter a serious problem. 
i have a template for labels to be printed on a ql-1060 (which has 
default labels of 102 mm (4") width). The label format in the template
is user defined, 10,2 cm width and 6 cm height, portrait orientation. This 
used to work perfectly with OOo, but with LO, the print dialog suddenly 
shows the label in landscape orientation (that is 6cm width and 10,2 cm 
height). i have to go the the properties of the label printer, and change 
the orientation from landscape to portrait manually.
so i have the impression tha the page orientation from LO is not passed to 
the label printer. this is rather annoying stuff, whicg can be worked 
arround, but is very confusing.

You fail to mention which version of LO and which OS; can you please advise?

If 3.4.x then I *highly* recommend trying 3.3.4 instead. To me it seems
that 3.4.x (3.4.3) is full of bugs and should never have been released
at all, particularly with this statement:

<http://www.libreoffice.org/download/>
<quote>
LibreOffice 3.4.3 Final (2011-08-31)

Safe for production use by most users and enterprises.
</quote>

That statement is, at the very least (again IMO, but can be verified by
the bug reports), wrong. Note: for anyone that disputes that, simply
review the users list and bug reports - you'll find many issues
regarding 3.4.x that are resolved by reverting back to 3.3.x.
