    How to register text from a fill-in form on paper copy of form?

    rockwe1145

      For several years, I have been using Reader to complete a fill-in medical insurance form and print the typed text onto a paper copy of the form.  The print has always been well registered on the paper copy.  For the past two weeks, the print is shifted up and to the left relative to the paper copy.  This happens on both printers I have and using either of two computers, with one running XP SP3 and the other one running W7.  So it seems the problem must be in the software, not the hardware.  How can I control the printing to make the print appear in the correct locations on the paper form.

       

      Thanks,

          Look at the settings in the Print dialog for page scaling, centering etc.

            Thank you for your response.  Over the past few years, I always was able to register the text, and in the print dialog box I would select "Actual size"  and no page scaling.  For some reason, those same settings don't work the same as they used to. 

             

            You suggest I use the "centering."  I can't find that in the print dialog box.  Can you tell me where it is?  Remember I have Adobe reader, not some higher-level Adobe product. 

             

            I have noticed something interesting when I open the Print dialog box, on the opening page.  At the lower left is a button called "Page Setup..."  If I click here, I see a window that looks like it could be used to specify margins, but there is no way I can change the values.  Do you know how I can get access to those settings?

             

            Thanks again!
