We're working on a project that requires a user to print out a design on a pre-made print paper. The problem we're having is that we are getting wildly inconsistent print-positioning results between browsers (and PC/mac), in that the prints are not aligning with the guides on the pre-made print paper.
We've been fiddling with all the properties of PrintJob (using pageHeight, paperWidth to get margin size, and offsetting our content based on that margin, etc), in an attempt to align our print. But we're still struggling to get consistent results.
Has anyone come up with a method to get solid, consistent print results, across browsers, and across PC/mac?
i've found the best results from retrieving the printer's page settings, creating a virtual page in flash that duplicates those settings and then adding the design elements in flash positioned the way i want. printing is then pixel perfect.
Thanks for your comment kglad.
We ended up not moving forward with straight-from-browser printing, and instead went with save/print PDF (we're getting much more consistent results with PDF). We just weren't able to nail down consistency with printing straight from browser- across PC/mac, all browsers, and all printers, in the allotted time we had for the project.
