I have an .ODT file, one paragraph, hand-typed. Print-preview (properly) shows portrait orientation, but print is in landscape. Really desire for it to be portrait. Page Format shows Portrait. How did I cause this?

I have the same issue with ODT and ODS files. I'm running Mac High Sierra. I checked all settings and everything is normal. I tried the same documents in OpenOffice and it works fine using that application.

The relevant facts:
You are using a Mac and OSX (Sierra?).
You want to print on 'Letter' paper most likely (or some other outdated USA paper size?).

If your situation is different, please report in detail.
