Tiny font when printing Libre Writer doc.
Using Mint 17.1, HP Officejet Pro 8610
Print is so tiny it is illegible, even though font size selected is 12. Printing a text file, gedit, prints okay.
Also, if I export the .odt doc to .pdf, it prints okay.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I just dumped Win7 OS and am learning Linux.
It might be the font you're using. There are several LibO-native fonts that are commensurate with MS fonts (and there are even MS fonts, if you feel like installing them) which might be more agreeable to your printer. FWIW, I use Liberation Serif (like Times New Roman) without difficulty.
Beachboy2, you win the prize. I was setting it to 1, but in the drop down print button. I just opened in system settings and there it was, 16 pages per sheet. Changed to 1 and now I'm a little embarrassed but a little smarter. Thanks.
