I have created a document and included photos and clip art. It all shows up in the print preview but when printed out, the photos and clip art are missing and only the text passage is there. How do I get these included in the printing?

Verify if FilePrintLibreOffice Writer tab▸Pictures and other graphic objects is checked.

You can set this permanent with ToolsOptionsWriterPrintContentsPictures and objects

Thanks for your help. Pictures and graphic objects is already checked. Still not included in print though.

This is due to an OpenGL bug affecting display + printing, which was fixed only at the end of December 2015. See Q64314 for more info + fixes.
