Using LO Writer in MacOS, when I try to print directly, in portrait mode, the text orientation is sideways. That is the text runs bottom to top on the portrait page, not left to right as I would expect. Is a bug fix in the works?

Capitalized title to avoid confusing with "writer macros" which looks similar.

I have the same problem. Did you find a temporary workaround until the problem gets fixed?

Workaround: Export as PDF, then print the PDF. For some reason, the PDF export orients correctly, as does the print from it.

Fixed in 5.4.5: I just installed LO 5.4.5, and in this version the print problem appears to be fixed.

Recently LibreOffice (ver. 5.0.4) has started changing page orientation from Portrait to Landscape. I have been unsuccessful in finding a way to correct this. I have saved to PDF, .docx, .rtf. Still only Landscape. How or where can the Page Setup be changed or corrected?

Fixed in 5.4.5: (In previous LO versions, in my experience, export to PDF has been a successful workaround - it gives you the correct print orientation.) In any case, I just installed LO 5.4.5, and in this version the print problem appears to be fixed: you can print directly from LO with the correct page orientation.
