How do you change the area to be printed on a document?

Need some additional information. Would recommend you read the survival guide for this forum

Main things here would be which component in OO.o you are using and what exactly is happening, and what you want to happen.

I guess you're talking about Calc to select a range of cells.
Not an expert but I've seen 2 features that could be worth investigating :
- Print dialog -> bottom left, there is a Selection button.
- Format>Print Ranges (but could not manage to eventually display the range in the range preview for example).

Thanks to add '[Solved]' in your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.

NB: moved your thread to the Calc forum.

If you are talking about Calc, you can see them with View > Page Break Preview
and you can change them with Format > Print Ranges > Edit...
From memory, Format > Print Ranges > Define is a bit unfriendly in that it immediately deletes any existing range, so I always use Edit.
