Page rotation Wrong on Print (Mac)

I'm on Mac and I've upgraded to the latest.

I don't understand why we still have the print problem of a portrait page printing 90 degrees on a portrait page. The rotated print cuts off the bottom and I cannot figure out to change it on any of our Macs. Even on brand new installs of the OS and Libreoffice still prints wrong. It also shows wrong in the preview.

This is the only app that does this.

I bad workaround is changing the page size from 8.5 to 8.52 or something there about. The other poor workaround is to select right or left pages and then back to all. But that only works in Writer.

Anybody have a real solution yet? This is getting annoying.

Same issue. Had this issue with earlier update and they said the latest would fix it.

-1- Using templates properly, the workaround applying a slightly increased paper size (compensated by margin setting) is not "bad". In fact it is easily established, and can also easily be dropped when the issue is finally fixed.
-2- @Mike Kaganski already told elsewhere the issue would be fixd soon. I can neither test with a Mac nor find a related release note, and you seem to not know the exact versions of your OSX and your LibO...
-3- @hilopaddler: Who is "they"?

The version of LibreOffice is 5.3.7. My Current Mac OS is 10.12.6 or 10.13.2 depending on the machine. This does not seem to have anything to do with the OS because I've done clean installs and it still was there. It's been in LibreOffice for quite a few versions. I keep updating hoping that it will be fixed. The workaround is bad when you work with possibly 100's of documents that come in daily and have to change each and every one. I'm just thankful there is a workaround.

The issue as I understand it was only reported for Mac OSX and 'Letter' paper size. It was seemingly not present before 'Sierra', and should, of course be fixed some day by LibO, even if the original cause may haven been changes in OSX.
Unfortunately I cannot test, and I also don't know a reliable announcement of the fix.I am hoping for assistance insofar.
Having the problem with "alien" documents is annoying, of course. Hoping with you.

This problem seems to have appeared sometime in version 5 in 2017, and to be fixed in LibreOffice 5.4.4, and LibreOffice 6.0.0. Upgrade your copy of LibreOffice to these versions or later to avoid the bug. More information in issue tdf#92190.
