    Thank you!
    Spent too much time trying to work this out.
    Step 3 worked for me.
    Not sure why this is set as default.

    THANK YOU! The last step – printer properties change – corrected these problems.
    Using Word 2010: some fonts were not printing, documents created using tables would not print, only the top or bottom of a page would print, formatting did not match screen/actual document.

    Thank you for your solution article!
    I was facing an ms-word left margin problem while printing my booklet to pdf. Your article point "Uncheck the Scale content for A4 or 8.5"x11" paper sizes option." saved a lot of my effort and resolve my problem.

    Keep it going…
    Thank you

    I had the same problem, the document looked fine on the screen but it came out very small and high on the page when it printed. I finally went into the printer properties and under page set up, I checked "fit to page" instead of "normal" and the preview looked fine and it printed fine. It just started doing this about a month ago out of the blue. My Word is from 2003 though, so I was having trouble following along, but thanks!

    Thanks, Step 3 really works. Been struggling for this margin problem for months and I had no idea how to fix it.
