Bug 63905 - printing with Draw/Impress

Hi all,

I've been working on fixing fdo#63905 (
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63905) and came across a
comment in the code (
http://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/include/vcl/print.hxx#524) to the
effect of Draw/Impress never using the page format specified in the Format
- Page dialog for printing but instead using the paper size set by the
printer (unlike Writer and Calc). The "bug" behaviour seems to back this
up. I've only had a chance to test with a virtual printer so far, but
changing paper size in the printer settings (as well as in Format - Page)
allows the page to be printed to the correct paper size.

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on this bug and/or why this
design decision was undertaken?
