Hi, when I export my document to PDF from Writer, the resulting file has uneven page sizes; it looks as though the pages have been trimmed to the width of the text.

How do I get a PDF that has 'whole' pages, like the print preview ?

cheers - J

Hi Qubit,

well I just updated LO to latest v (, and I still get the same issue - here's a screen grab of the overview in Okular: (oh no, I don't have sufficient Karma...)

there are no tweaks (to Export PDF or Page settings) that I recall.

Once I can confirm that what I see is unexpected, I'll file the bug report as you suggest

thanks - J

... and then reverted to v3.6 as v4.0 crashes every time I open one of my macro-enabled Calc files

@JackSprat -- Hmm... sounds like you struck upon another bug dealing with macros!

  1. You now should have enough karma to upload images, so that can help us determine if this is worthy of a bug report.
  2. Please open a bug report for your macro-enabled calc files. They should definitely not be crashing in LO 4.x!

Hi @JackSprat,

When I export PDFs from Writer, the page width is consistent.

  • Are you the running the latest release of LO?
  • Have you tweaked any settings in LO regarding PDFs, page formatting, or printing?

If you're still stumped, this sounds like it could be a decent candidate for a bug report.

Please post a link to any bugs you file in a comment below using the format "fdo#123456".
