How do I stop printing once it has started?

I made a mistake and clicked print and didn’t want to print. How do I stop the printing?

By that time there is nothing LO can do. You could open up printer queue and cancel it there or press abort button on your printer. Also you could just pull the plug, remove the paper, delete the job from queue and power up your printer again. After a few tries you know which one is the easiest with your printer.

You can’t do much in LibreOffice. But if you do click print by accident a lot, you can remove Print icon from toolbar:

  1. Tools | Customize.
  2. From list uncheck Print option.

    Now when ever you would like to print select File | Print.

When this happens to me, I first power off my printer - this stops all at once and is fast. Next I clear the printing queue…
