    Default printer in OpenOffice


    We're having a problem with setting a default printer in OO. Every time we select a printer; after the program is shutdown and starts up again it reverts to the XPS Writer as default. I've already unchecked the box that loads the printer settings per document, to no avail. We had this problem in 4.1.1 and still experience it in 4.1.2. Is there perhaps an .xml file or something that can be edited to fix this problem?

    Note: I do not experience this on other OS's (Win7 & 8)
