I pasted two images into the second page of a Writer document. They show in the Writer window, but when I go to print, only p1 shows in the preview.

I've checked that Print Images is checked in both the Printer Options

I found a workaround by printing the images on two separate pages using Preview. But the images ought to be printable in LibreOffice by default. And even with all the settings checked that might have suppressed image printing turned 'on' I still can't get it to print the images. For future use, I'd really like to get to the bottom of this.

When I tried again, after restarting the computer (not just LibreOffice) the Print option was already checked 'on'. And this time, the images appeared both in the Print preview, and in the Print dialogue, whereas previously only page 1 had appeared, even when I checked Print All.

Odd, and annoying, but apparently a one off.

I have Mojave 10.14.6, and LibreOffice v6.1.3.2

Select the image that resists being printed, choose menu Format - Image - Properties… (the same as secondary click Properties…) - Options tab, and check the Property Print.

If Property Print is disabled, you will not be able to see the image with menu File - Print Preview (the same as Ctrl+Shift+O).
