normal spreadsheet when I print the output prints in a square about the size of a postage stamp. There is a page break and I get two sheets printed.

What setting controls this.

Using LO on Windoze 10

p.s. I just printed another calc spreadsheet and it printed correctly using an entire sheet of paper.

pss, fast forward 24 hours.

I did a Ctrl-A and copied the sheet, then I did a Paste Special and only pasted with the boxes on text and numbers checked. That printed. I have had to reformat a bunch of columns, fonts, sizes but I am able to print.

So there must be a corrupt setting in the old sheet. So consider this closed unless someone at LO wants a copy of the corrupt spreadsheet to try and find the problem. I did not delete it.

Thank you

To control the scale of the printed output of Calc go to Format -> Page and in the Scale section, you can choose how you want the spreadsheet to fit onto the page. If it is too small (like the size of a postage stamp), then you could try increasing the Scaling factor, and checking in File -> Print Preview whether it looks fine.

LO 6.0+: Menu Format - Page… - Sheet tab - Scale section, set Scaling mode: to Reduce/enlarge printout and Scaling factor: to 100%.
