[Solved] Page Preview/Print Screen Blank

Postby OskyHerald » Fri Dec 11, 2020 12:46 am

I'm not really a super computer geek or anything so I'm not sure why this is doing this. When I go into page preview to make sure I have everything small enough it will print on one page or big enough so it will fit the page nothing shows up on the page preview screen. In addition, when I go to print to see if it will show me there it is blank and say no page. I have attached a picture of what I am trying to do and what is happening below, well the page preview screen anyway. It says the other two are too big and I don't know how to resize them. I have 4.1.7 downloaded now could that be the issue?

Try this file. You may have set up the page to be printed funnily.

Are you looking at a preview of the right document? The screen shot shows that there is a Text document and a Calc document open. The preview in the screen shot looks like a preview of a Calc spreadsheet which has no data entered.

I've never had it do that even if I don't have data entered yet especially if I preset my border areas I'm wanting to use. I wonder why it's doing that now.

No idea. I tried it with LO Calc and it doesn't show any pages either, but it does splash "No Data" across the window. Borders are data, so pages are shown if borders are defined.

Oops. Pages are shown in LO Calc if borders are defined. AOO still shows no pages.

Enter some content in the cells. Borders and background do not appear to count as content.
