    I tried to print this file last night, and the bottom edge, about 1/4", was cut off on each page.

    I selected "Choose Paper Source by PDF page size" under "Page Handling" on the Print dialogue screen in Adobe. I also chose "Auto-Rotate and Center", and Page Scaling = "None". The file is apparently designed to be printed on A4 paper. I have cut down some 12"x12" cardstock to 8 1/2" x 12" .

    The print preview window shows that the page will fit on this size, using these parameters, however, that does not seem to be the case. If I change the Page Scaling to "Fit to Printer Margins" the file seems to fit, but is zoomed to 95%.

    Can someone please give me some advice before I burn through an inkjet cartridge trying to print this file!

    Unselect "Choose Paper Source by PDF page size".
    And select "Fit to printer margins".

    That does sound a bit weird. Have you tried setting the page size to A4 in the printer settings?

    Something I found that works every once in a while is to use the graphics selection tool to draw the selection box around the area that I want printed, making sure the selection box outline is as close to the parts as I can make it. Then in printing choose print selected graphic. A lot of the time the page will print without any parts being cut off, even if the pdf is sized for A4 paper and I am using USLetter. Sometimes it doesn't work, though. :oops:

    Just some thoughts.:)
