Attempting to print from Writer 3.5 on Linux. Envelopes will not print in any orientation other than top left portrait. Despite the fact that I have chosen a center feed 90 degree left rotation from the printer orientation selection. The envelope displays correctly on the screen, prints OK on letter paper, but it will not rotate 90 left for the manual feed envelopes.

This envelope printed fine in a previous version.

I have found that this problem can be worked around by changing the Printer Language Type from the default of PDF to PostScript(level from driver).

Click File -> Print -> Properties -> Device -> Printer Language Type.

Unfortunately this setting is not remembered and always goes back to PDF.
