Hi, Deborah,

Choose the Default setting under Page Scaling in the Print Dialog
Presets on the Advanced Tab under Document Properties:

and see this excerpt from the help.

"Print Dialog Presets

Page Scaling
Prepopulates the Page Scaling option in the Print dialog box with
the option you choose:

Default
Uses the application default setting, which is Shrink To
Printable Area."

Your users would have to intentionally override the default scaling to
mess things up.

HTH,
Jim

Subject: A PDF Instructions question

Hi All,

As you know, margins can be cut off from the bottom of a document,
depending on the printers people use. For example, on my printer, 0.6"
bottom margin is fine, but on my client's printer, the footer is cut
off.

In the PDF, there is plenty of physical space. I advised my client that
when he prints the PDF, to make sure Shrink to Printable Area is
selected when printing the page, and it will come out fine.

Question: He is wondering if we need to give the users instructions in
the MANUAL for printing the PDF.

I have never done this before. I've printed tons of PDFs and never had a
question come back to our service groups (when I worked for a company)
about the footer NOT printing...

What do you think?

Deborah
