Libreoffice 4.3/Centos6 printing problems


On my Centos 6 machine I use Libreoffice 4.3 for word processing. Recently when I create a document, it will print in greatly reduced size in horizontal format, but if I do a page preview, it will look perfect. I have to convert the document to pdf, and print that which will print properly. (A single page 31 line document, prints horizontally with an incredibly small font. I have tried to look for some setting in Libreoffice, but can't seem to locate anything to get the printing proper.

What make and model of printer do you have?

Have you tested it on any other printers?

It's an HP Officejet pro 8600. I turned it off and on to try to clear any settings, ran a printer test that worked properly. I just tried to print a pure text file I wrote with VI and got a blank page. There must be something wrong with the printer driver. I'll de-install and re-install it. Perhaps that will help.

I just got the answer, but not sure what happened. I went to the "printing tab" on the system menu, and the printer was set to 6 pages per side. Thank you for your suggestions.
