I had the same thing happen. It used to be there, but it disappeared.

I poked around and found that Tools->Options->LibreOffice->General has a category for Print Dialogues with a check-box for "Use LibreOffice dialogues". Somehow, it was checked.

I unchecked it and Voila! the "print to file" item reappeared.

Have you looked on top of the printers selection? It's there for me with version 5.2.

LibreOffice has none of these options and only the real printer is available. What the hell were these developers thinking to change something that is NOT broken. Real dumb programing on their part. I'm dropping back to older version. I see no benefits in versions 5.0, 6.0 or 7.0. They are all slower and suck in my opinion. From a Software Developer for 30+ years so I know a bit about programing.
