LO Writer 5 pdf conversion right margin indent too far left, how to fix?

When converting a write document to pdf either using the direct button or export option from the file menu, the text is indented too far to the left, leaving nearly half the right side of the page blank. I tried to reset the parameters and change settings but still get the same output.

Also, seems that Writer squeezes the text down so that about 25% of the right side of the page isn’t printed on when making a hard copy. I’m wondering if there’s some setting I may have accidentally triggered that shrinks the text down. I can’t find anything in the man pages.

Solved! See this post: Writer docs shrinks when printed
