           Summary: Printing and formatting problems with Dymo
          Severity: normal
        Issue Type: DEFECT
    Classification: Application
                OS: Windows Vista
          Hardware: PC
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: OOo 3.4 Beta

Created attachment 77564
label example

This is not a 3.4beta problem, but a 3.4 final release problem. 

I own a Dymo LabelWriter 450. When I want to use this printer from Writer, I do
the following:

1. Start Writer.
2. Go to File > Printer Settings and choose the LabelWriter.
3. Use properties to change the layout to landscape.
4. After doing all this I now see a document with the size of the loaded label,
or at least sort of.
5. Now I use Format > Page > Page to change the margins. The nominal size of
these particular labels is 89 x 28mm. However the paper size shown in this tab
is 8.89 x 4.50cm, and at first it is not possible to change the height of the
label to the proper 2.8cm. Only after changing the top and bottom margins from
the default 2cm to for instance 0.3cm is it possible to adjust the height of
the page to 2.8cm. It seems the correct page height taken from the printer
driver (2.8cm) is initially overruled by a calculated height of top margin +
bottom margin + 0.5cm. In my view this is incorrect. The paper size is a hard
value, the margins are user adjustable. A warning that the margins are
incorrect after point 4 would be a better solution, but the document should
always show up with the proper real paper size.
5. After editing the labels I obviously want to print them, so I click on File
> Print. The Print Window will show the proper label size (89 x 28mm), even if
the paper height of the document has not been corrected from 4.50cm to 2.80cm.
The print itself however doesn't function properly. The attached label will not
print beyond halfway the first "S", so instead of "TEST TEST" I get "TES".
