Select the Brochure option to print your document in brochure format. The brochure format is as follows in LibreOffice Writer:
If you print a document in portrait on a landscape page, two opposing sides in a brochure will be printed next to each other. If you have a printer with double-sided printing capability, you can create an entire brochure from your document without having to collate the pages later. If you have a printer that only has single-sided printing capability, you can achieve this effect by first printing the front pages with the "Front sides / right pages /odd pages" option marked, then re-inserting the entire paper stack in your printer and printing all the back pages with the "Back pages / left pages / even pages" option marked.
Right to left
Check to print the pages of the brochure in the correct order for a right-to-left script.
Specifies whether comments in your document are printed.
Print automatically inserted blank pages
If this option is enabled, automatically-inserted blank pages are being printed. This is best if you are printing double-sided. For example, in a book, a "chapter" paragraph style has been set to always start with an odd numbered page. If the previous chapter ends on an odd page, LibreOffice inserts an even numbered blank page. This option controls whether to print that even numbered page or not.
Paper tray from printer settings
For printers with multiple trays, the "Paper tray from printer settings" option specifies whether the paper tray used is specified by the system settings of the printer.
If you have installed fax software on your computer and wish to fax directly from the text document, select the desired fax machine.
