I am trying to get a PDF to print at 100% but it ends up 15 or 20% smaller. I made the PDF using Distiller 5.0 on a Mac G3 running OS 9.2. There are margins on the page roughly one inch on each side with a half inch top and bottom. Even if I allow much larger margins, the page still shrinks about 15% when printed.
The PDF prints fine from a Powerbook G4 when using Apple’s version of PDF Reader. However, when I use Acrobat Reader, even if the page set-up says 100%, the page gets printed roughly at 70%. Apparently there is a default that shrinks a page to fit, but I don’t seems to have it anywhere in my preferences.
