Printing was OK until a few days ago. It says select printer, which is already selected. Does recognize selected printer.

FOR EVERYONE POSTING TO THIS Q&A -- Please make a note of your operating system (and version number), as well as make and model of your printer, when making your contribution. Printing issues are very much connected with OS, and without that information, the Q&A is not very helpful at all. Thanks.

Yesterday I upgraded to 6.05 from 6.04 as I wanted the jpg compression for export to pdf. Printer worked fine from LO until then. I tried printing document 3 times without it appearing in spooler or printer queue. After 10 minutes of checking things I exported it to pdf and printed from Acrobat. I then thought I would have another look at the printing issue so did CTRL+P again and immediately the previous 3 instances started printing. Seems to be communication between LO and Windows driver. Windows 10 Pro 1803, Printer networked HP 8620 with HP driver and software. Alistair

I am having the same problem. This Computer has had it 4 or 5 months=Libre no problem. Then today it will not print. Everything else works fine Just this program. I also installed the printer at the same time. Got new Drivers etc. I paid my money on the computer that died. So I thought maybe they did something? My Printer is HP Pro 8600

I also have this problem and I don't have an answer. Windows 10 version 1803 (64-bit) - clean reinstall LibreOffice v6.0.4 (x64)

LibreOffice recognises and lists my 2 printers - HP OfficeJet 6500 and OfficeJet Pro 8100, both on a cabled home/office network. Print dialog box opens with all the settings, but doesn't send anything to either printer. If I save a document as a PDF and open that in FoxIt PDF Reader, I can print from that program. So the printers work from this computer, but not from LibreOffice v6.0.4.

I have LibreOffice v6.0.3.2 on another PC with exactly the same Widows 10, version 1803, and I can print to the same printers from that. So this seem to be a 6.0.4 issue .

Ok, I have resolved this. Uninstall the printer(s) and reinstall using the manufacturer's own drivers. HP in my case, and for for both printers it meant using Widows 7 drivers. The new installation of Windows 10 (version 1803) installs attached printers automatically, but not completely so it seems. They were recognised in Devices and Printers and could be printed to from other programs like FoxIt PDF Reader. And I could do test prints from the settings dialog boxes.

I presume you mean "Does not recognize selected printer".

Windows 10? Possibly a recent upgrade has messed with your printer. Try uninstalling the printer, get the latest drivers from the printer manufacturer, and reinstall the printer.

No, he means "DOES" recognize. I have the very same problem: printer is listed in LibreOffice. Other programs are able to print on that same printer. It _may_ have been introduced with the 1803 update of windows 10, but it is limited to libre office 6.

It may be limited to version 6.0.4.

@robleyd I think It is not a good behavior to answer "assuming" what a question is for. that will NOT help other people with the same question. Please use comments to ask for clarifications first.
