LibreOffice 4.4.5.2 Writer. MS Windows 7 Pro 64-bit. This is a document originally done in MS Word, but we're cutting way back on Office licenses. The document is our new customer credit app and contains boxes where they write in (manually) the requested information.

When I print from MS Office, it's fine. When I print from LibreOffice it uses only a portion of the page. The entire document is printed (it's all there) but there is a tremendous amount of white space around it. Therefore the document on paper is small. The left white space is .3", right white space is 2.5", top white space is 1.5", bottom white space is 2". These are not the margins set in the document.

I converted it to an .odt and printing that does the same thing. I exported to PDF and the result is the same, meaning all that white space exists in the PDF. I have tripled checked the margin settings (and as I said earlier, it prints fine in MS Office).

Suggestions and thanks.
