Since installing the latest version of Libre Office I find that the printer dialogue box (which was always bigger than neccessary) does not fit on my widescreen laptop so I cannot access the print button or anything below the A4 sheet that I'm trying to print. Adobe documents are no problem.

  • What is the resolution of your display?
  • Are you using a scale level on Windows (Settings -> System -> Display -> Option: Scale and layout)?

Quite unusual - isn't it 1366 x 768? According to all comments in the bug report, it should be sufficient. Did your try to drag the dialog window towards the upper edge of your display?

I regret that I'm too much of a dinosaur to know! I have tried to move the window but it will not move enough. I have now uninstalled Version 6.4.4.2 and reinstalled an earlier version which works fine (although even that window is larger than neccessary
