I have exported a few documents form InDesign to PDF. When I print the documents, some parts get cut off (top section or bottom section) but there is still room on the paper. I'ts like the printer decides not to print those sections. I am printing on 5x7inch paper and all my documents show their sizes as 5x7inches.
I think it's a printer settings problem...
Have you check the borderless setting of your printer?
Probably to print without margins you have to set some parameters on the printer driver dialog box...
I hope this help
This is a general issue with PDFs. If you don't consider the non-printable margin of a printer when setting up your document, this can happen. Usually, when viewing the PDF in a read and printing from there, there is an option like "Fit document to paper" which reduces it to the the printable area. If your printer can print borderless, you don't need that.
Everytime I click "choose papaer source by PDF size" the preview changes, and my bottom portion come off the page. even when I print it in fit, it still prints what shows in the preview when "choose paper source by PDF size" picture
Maybe It could be depend on PDF export setting used in Indesign...
Anyway, try this steps:
Open the PDF in Acrobat Pro
Go to the "Tools" menu and select the "Pages" tab.
Then select the option for "Crop Pages."
Double click into the document view and set all the margins to 0.
Save and retry to print
thank you all for the help... I think I figured out the problem... my documents can be formatted as borderless, but my printer's defaults can not. Sorry for replying yes to the response about ensuring the printer can print borderless. I didn't realize it had to do with the printers settings! I thought it was just ensure that the documents accept a margin of 0 (zero) ! I apologize for all the wasted time on this issue but i'm very appreciative and greatful for all your help!
According to HP, that printer does not support 5 x 7, and I don't see any mention of borderless. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c02105426&tmp_trac k_link=ot_faqs/top_issues/en_us/c02105426/loc:4&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&pro duct=5061082#N1554
