I create my document and it looks fine, when it is printed randomly a placed file is moved down about 2 inches and the bottom half of the tif file is cut off. Not all placed files, in one document it was two and in another it was one. If I save the completed document as a pdf, it prints correctly. I'm wondering if this is a InDesign problem or a printer problem.
ID is somewhat notorious for problems when printing direct. Export to PDF and print that from Acrobat or Reader.
