    A4 / A5 Printing

    Hi
    When I print a cetain document,the Page Setup shows A4, but when it prints out, it prints on A4 paper but the print is A5 sized and appears at the top / right end of the page.
    Although I go back and try to change back to A4 I find that the page setup is still set on A4 anyway.
    Is there a way to change this so that it does print A4 size as it should?????
    thanks in advance
    Billy B

    Hi,

    Is this a Printer setting? My printer has a option to print multiple pages on 1 sheet. Options like scaling and zoom may also effect the output.

    Cheers
    Andy

    Can you post the doc? Remove any private content but make sure the problem remains with new data.

    This is a problem with my daughter's laptop which is connected to the house printer via wireless connection.
    I have asked her to give me a copy of the document but she has just told me that it is not just that one document but every document she tries to print in Word.
    I am still none the wiser though as to what to do here with this problem
    any ideas???

    I would check the printer settings on the laptop.
    Also check the page setup for multiple pages.

    Another check would be to take one of the files from the laptop and try it on another pc.

    Cheers

    Re: A4 / A5 Printing

    due to tech problems over weekend Billy sent me this
    The document on the laptop has page set up settings exactly as they appear on the desktop pc. When I print any document on the laptop it comes out a5. The same document printed from the desktop using the same printer comes out as it should, ie a4.
    The multiple pages setting is the same on both computers ie normal.
    so no closer to the solution yet

    So this narrows it down to the printer setup on the laptop, as Jack points out if it is not a setting then maybe the driver are incorrect. Maybe check the manufacturers website for driver updates or known problems.

    Cheers

    I went back to the laptop and thought it must be the settings as the printer has worked without problem for a long time. I think some button has been pressed or setting changed as all I did was re-set factory (or default) settings in the printer setup and it works fine now.
    So thanks for pointing me in the right direction but sorry to have bothered you over something so trivial.
    Regards
