Printer metrics for document formatting

Greetings.

I want to disable the setting “Use printer metrics for document
formatting” in Libre Office Writer (Libre Office 6.0.3.2 on Ubuntu
18.04). When I deselect it it is automatically selected again every
time I open a document, whether a new document or an existing one.

I have made the change in each of the relevant documents and also in
the default “New.ott” (~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/template/New.ott),
but to no avail.

Is there any way of fixing this?

Many thanks.

It occurred to me that this might be buried in the advanced features
(Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Advanced > Open Expert Configuration).
I found two references to compatibility here, under

org.openoffice.Office.Compatibility > AllFileFormats >
org.openoffice.Office.Compatibility:FormattingOptions['user']

and also

org.openoffice.Office.Compatibility:FormattingOptions['default']

In both places UsePrinterMetrics is set to “false”. I quit the program,
and when I open it again the setting under Tools > Options> LibreOffice
Writer Compatibility has changed back to “true.”

Re: Printer metrics for document formatting [SOLVED]

After much trawling and peeking into corners, I find that another
setting has to be changed first for this to stick.

(1) Tools > Options > Load/Save > General: Load user-specific settings
with the document: ON

then

(2) Tools > Options > LibreOffice Writer > Compatibility: Use printer
metrics for document formatting: OFF
