    Shrink to fit vs Shrinking 50%

    (Using an adobe format) I have a customer that when he shrinks his 22x34 document by 50% and prints on 11x17 paper it prints just fine. When he checks the "print to fit" box it it shrinks the document even more where it has a 3 or so centimeter blank outer edge. This is important because he wants to shrink other "to scale" documents of different original sizes to 11x17 paper.

    Its a software issue not a printer driver or machine fault.

    Set up a printer "custom page layout" in the design software.
    Eg. Set physical Paper size, borders,margins,tabs,gutter,header,footer etc...

    Switch to the "custom page layout" required when printing off each custom job.
