I have the following problem with Writer:

In the system I have installed several printers. When I open the file menù - printer, the default printer is not the system default printer. With calc the problem does not occur.

Libreoffice Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Can anyone help me? Thanks

The fact that you are getting different results with Writer and Calc suggests a possible User Profile corruption that may need to be resolved. The default printer settings are determined by:

; DefaultPrinter: marks the default printer

... in one of these two locations:


The user profile setting should override the install location setting. There is not always a psprint.conf file in the user profile.

Try running the spadmin utility. It should be in the same directory as the LO program files.
