Problem making PDF from OOO


Hi!

I have no problem making PDFs from OOO if they are at the format Portrait A4 but the landscape A4 format does not work.

I tried many possibilities, my original document is landscape A4, without success.

Any idea?

Thank you

Michel

Hi!

I am using OOO version 1.0.2 which is with Red Hat 9.
My original document is made with OOO draw, the paper is set to landscape.
When I print to PDF as I usually do with documents, the icon shows a preview of the document in the correct landscape format but when I open the PDF, the content is cut.

I tried to set up different paper format, set to landscape when printing the pdf , and set to lanscape view when reading the PDF, nothing work.

I also tried to rotate the content to a potrait and print he PDF but the result is the same.
Kind of crazy!

Thanks for your help.
Michel

I did a test and it work perfectly but I was using OpenOffice 1.1. You should upgrade to 1.1 its much better and faster.

I agree with Electro, OOo 1.1 seems to work ok.
