I created a document in Open Office on Windows, but when now using Libre Office on Ubuntu to print the same document the headers and footers do not print (HP 5220). I have installed Calibri to Libre Office using MS Power Point Viewer as the original document used Calibri font.

Thank you. I had a suspicion that the problem lay in "Styles"; something that I have ignored up until now, just using the default setting and changing font and margins to suit my purpose for each new document. Perhaps I need to save the settings I am using into a named style which will then be saved with the document? OpenOffice is version 3.4.1 (running on Windows 10) and LibreOffice is version (running on Linux Mint 17.2) Alan.

What versions of OpenOffice and LibreO are you using? Are you using just the default page settings? Have you checked that the Page Styles and the default page settings are the same between the two systems? Are you using the same fonts and printers with the same paper. You could try saving the file in LibreO and reloading it. The more information you give, the clearer the possible problems can be eliminated.

Sorry not to give you a direct answer, but the above are few things to try if you have not already..Peter
