LibreOffice update lost all existing document's printer settings

Running Ubuntu 18.04, two days ago updated LibreOffice to and the next day learned that all my existing documents lost their printer settings.

I found this when I printed a document that had had a printer setting of duplexnotumble and the duplex setting was now “none”.

In addition the default writer template I made two years ago so all my documents would default to duplexnotumble was now defaulting to “none”.

I checked the release notes (LibreOffice 7.2 Community: Release Notes - The Document Foundation Wiki) and didn’t find anything.

Was there a change I did not find that caused this or would this be a bug? I did not read all the notes but searched for “print” and “settings”.

Thank you

One thing to check first: There is a setting to load printer config with the document or not.

See this old thread, as my locale is not set for english:

Did you generate a new profile during your update?

I checked and it looks like the update kept my old profile as my initials were still set.

And it is set to load user specific and printer settings with the document.

Thank you for the suggestion
