I see where this has been asked, but not solved.
I am using Vista, a dedicated printer (Canon Pixma MX330) is active and on, OpenOffice can "see" the printer set as the default and hooked up via USB but buttons for "properties" and "OK" are greyed out. Can change to other printer options (Canon Pixma fax for example) but the result is the same - OO does not recognize that I have a printer set up as my default.
What's really weird is that I have printed from OO before with no issues. Tried updating my version of OO, updating Windows, rebooting, etc. Oh, and the printer works fine in other applications.
Can anyone help please??!!
