Hello and thank you for reading.

Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS / Libreoffice 420m0(Build:2)

I am attempting to convert landscape documents generated by the MS Office suite into PDF for further processing. Here is a screenshot of the document open in MS Office:

And here is a screenshot of it open in libreoffice:

Notice that the bottom is cut off due to the margins (which are allegedly the same as the Office margins)

When I attempt to convert to PDF using the libreoffice --headless --convert-to pdf command, I get the following:

My questions are as follows:

1) Are there any options, potentially undocumented, to resolve this issue with landscape documents? 2) Is there any way to pass options to the PDF export to allow bleeding into the margins? 3) Is this a bug in Libreoffice?

I've uploaded the test file which you can attempt to reproduce locally here:

Upgrade LibreOffice to 5.4.7: if you don't have repo into your PC:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
