Printing from Open Office

Had some trouble printing from Open Office Writer (an open-source word processor). Didn’t seem to matter what setting I changed, it didn’t fit on the page properly.

I even contacted Canon who emailed me some steps to follow. It was around then that I figured out it was printing fine from other applications, just not from Open Office!

Fortunately, Open Office lets you “Save as a PDF” – so that’s my temporary solution… Save the document as a PDF, and then print that.

Hopefully the next update will fix that little bug.

One thought on “Printing from Open Office

  1. I use NeoOffice. Looks much better than the standard OpenOffice interface. Another great thing about the mac is the “Save as PDF” function built-in to the print dialogue box. No need to be installing 3rdparty PDF programs.
