can anyone tell me how i can get certain documents to print to the page size.?
at the moment on certain documents it keeps printing of the sheet (if you know what i mean)

Try looking for a box named "fit to page" in the print settings box that comes up when you hit file>print. Tick it. That should do the trick.

Open the document webpage ( browser Internet Explorer or Firefox or whatever you use will open and display the page when you doubleclick on document saved as 'Webpage')

In your Browser:
File > Print Preview > Page Setup and then play with the settings till you have it how you want.

I"ve been printing some very long stuff off on my hp deskjet840c printer by using the landscape option in the prefences section; and I highlight the parts I want , then select "selection " from my menue; I then only get what I want but on a wide page with all the detail ; you then get all the detail you wish; using the normal portrait style was no good for me ; I developed this method courtesy of a suggestion by Djohn ( thanks !!)and a member on another forum where i have had terrible problems printing off my requirements for my study; the landscape option gives me all the items I need and select:))hope this helps a bit for you?
