Hi All,

I posted this to the Acrobat Win user forum on the Adobe site, but
didn't get a response. For those of you who are subscribed to it, I
apologize for the cross-post.

I read the Adobe FAQ and searched the Adobe user forums archives about
this problem, but didn't find a solution. I'm hoping one of you will be
able to help me or point me to further resources.

When I print a pdf to either one of the printers we have here (an HP
LaserJet 5000 N and an OfficeJet G55xi) the content shrinks, making the
bottom margin about .5" larger than normal. The pdf looks normal
on-screen, though.

The problem isn't a restriction of the printer, because the documents
print fine directly from Word. Also, the "fit to page" option is not
checked, and I set the default printer to Distiller before I created the

I'm using Acrobat 4.0 0312 08:06.

I would appreciate any suggestions or thoughts.
