I'm taking a pdf file and printing it to a postscript
file. However, I do not get the same results if
I go directly to the printer. I've been using the
Acrobat.pdf file for a test. The image is 7.17x5.39 inches. When I send the postscript file to the
printer the image seems to be shifted to the right
by about 2 inches and the right side of the image is
truncated. What am I missing? Is there a parameter
that I'm not setting that I should be setting. I'm
kind of lost for the moment but still trying.
Should I be setting the printerSpec paramter to something else or how about the embeddedRect parameter?

The parameters I'm setting are shown below.
memset( ¶ms, 0,
sizeof(AVDocPrintParamsRec ) );
params.size = sizeof( AVDocPrintParamsRec );
params.emitToFile = true;
params.interactive = false;
params.emitToPrinter = false;
params.embedded = false;
params.doColorSeparations = false;
params.binaryOK = false;
params.shrinkToFit = false;
params.firstPage = -1; // do all pages.
params.lastPage = -1;
params.pageSpec = PDAllPages;
params.psLevel = 2L; // ps level 2
params.fileSysName = ASAtomNull;
params.printerSpec = NULL;
params.emitFileOption = kAVEmitFilePS;
params.emitFontOption = kAVEmitFontAllFonts;
params.emitFlags = kAVEmitHalftones;
params.TTasT42 = true; // send TrueType fonts as
// TrueType fonts
