Printing gives me multiple dialogs

I have a document of about 250 pages. When I try to print the document, I get multiple print dialogs for the one document (more than 20).

Most of the print dialogs start at page 1, but the number of pages varies from a few to many.

I cancel each print dialog, but, before I do, I can see the mini preview and the apparent number of pages.

For example

  • the first print dialog shows 12 pages, from 1-12
  • the second dialog shows 6 pages, from 1-6

… and so on

When I try Print Preview, it looks intact.

I am running 6.2 on MacOS 10.14.3. I have tried:

  • Running the previous version
  • Save As… the document
  • Completely uninstalling and reinstalling LibreOffice
  • Using an older version of LibreOffice on a different computer.

Clearly, there’s something wrong with the document.

How can I recover from this problem?

This is something quite unusual. So possibly the best you can do is to file a bug report, attaching a sample problematic document. If needed, please anonimize it.

I have this too, macOS 10.13.6 LibreOffice

I have copied another doc onto the end of my current doc, this may be relevant as the pages in each dialog don’t seem that random. I get 4 dialogs, I can cancel through them. The doc shows okay in Print Preview but the print dialogs show “1 of 1”, “1 of 11”, “1 of 1”, then “1 of 6”.

Is there some merge all virtual docs into one doc option?

I believe this document prints okay at work (on Windows) so this is probably a Mac LibreOffice issue.
