Printing Forms From Firefox

Post by hlewton »

In Firefox I found I cannot get the proper size when I print the form out from the NET. The same form does print correctly if I use Google Chrome, another computer with Firefox, or download the file and use Coral PDF Fusion to print it. On my computer it prints about a third the size it should no matter what setting I use in the drop-down menu for printing size. Since it works on another computer using Firefox I am wondering what setting I can change on my computer to make it print correctly. Does anyone know what I need to change?

Thanks.

Not absolutely certain but I think I may have fixed it. I'd still appreciate hearing suggestions to be sure.

Select File > Page Setup...
Has the zoom percentage been set to a small number?

Or have the margins been set to a large figure in the Margins & Header/Footer tab of the same dialog?

Hans I don't know what it was when it did not print properly. I will attach what it is now and how I think it got set that way. When trying to print it when it was messed up I used the drop down menu at the top of the form that said "Automatic Zoom" and set it to "Fit Page." That did not work. After searching the NET I used the Firefox Settings drop down menu, choose Print, the made sure Scale was set to "Shrink to Fit" and "Portrait" was chosen. Then I printed it and it printed out fine. Please see attached for what those settings you mentioned are now.

Thanks.
