PDF prints are not located in the middel

Posted

When i try to print pdf files on firefox, all papers printed don't have any margin on top and left.

I want my prints to be located at the middle.

Instead of middle, my prints are aligned to the top-left and have as twice as margin on the right and the bottom.

I would like to know how to fix such alignment and if possible, to change page scaling (such as "fit to printable area")

The margin setting is controlled by the Printer driver. Did you do a preview print before printing? And are you printing pdf from firefox or adobe type software? This makes a difference as I have seen browser pdf print different then adobe acrobat opening the pdf and printing.

Question owner

When i print on firefox the pop up doesnt have any option related to the margin or page scaling.

And any other prints including adobe reader works fine. So i thought it was the firefox that has problem.

And i dont get what "preview print" is.

Hi RunTa, I recommend printing from a dedicated PDF program like Adobe Reader. The PDF you see in Firefox is converted to HTML and your printout won't be as accurate.

Meanwhile, you can check the Page Setup dialog. When you call up print preview on a regular web page (not a PDF), there is a button, or you can use:

(menu bar) File > Page Setup > Margins & Header/Footer tab

If you don't normally display the menu bar, tap the Alt key or F10 key to show it temporarily.

If that looks normal, check out the following thread about paper size settings: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1253466
