three commonly encountered printing problems:
error messages or just printing very slow. This may mean you need
to download and install the latest free Acrobat Reader from Adobe. Even
if you know you have the latest version this may be needed. The Acrobat
Reader software seems to get "corrupted" and needs to be replaced quite
frequently. If you install a new version of Acrobat Reader, be sure and
read Printing Problem #2 below. Your new software may come with
incorrect settings that cause problem #2. To go to Adobe and download a
new version of Acrobat Reader
boxes print too small (this may be only obvious with large items
like souvenir sheets).
There's an Adobe Acrobat Reader printing box titled "Shrink
oversized pages to page size" in version 5.x (or
"fit to page" in
version 4.x) that you do NOT want to have selected. This
will cause the page to print smaller than intended.
If you de-select (uncheck) this box things should print as
intended. For some strange reason Adobe seems
to have this box checked as the default value in version 5.x of Adobe
Acrobat. So if you download a new version, you'll probably have to
uncheck the box.
3. The whole
page prints too high - the top border is too close to the top of
the paper. This is a frequent problem with ink-jet printers (it should
very rarely happen with lasers). The solution is usually to set your
paper type to "A4". There's more discussion of this positioning issue in
the Questions Section of the website.
