You need to select the proper information in your print dialog box. The
way to do this depends upon your printer and OS.
What information am I looking for in the print dialog box? I am using Windows XP with a Canon iR7090 laser printer, if that tells you anything. On the paper source tab, I have the "paper source" set to auto. I have the "select by" option set to paper source.
A legal sized document should not be printing "in a tiny corner" of a
letter sized paper, no matter what combination of options are chosen.
It might print at the correct size, and be cut off, or be scaled down
to fit; these are the only two proper results.
So, this is probably the thing to fix first.
What happens if you explicitly choose legal sized paper in printer
setup and print the legal sized PDF files?
I chose the legal size in the print properties, and it printed on legal size paper. But, it still printed the image at about 1"x2" in the upper left hand corner. I agree with you, it should not be printing like this. I have never seen this before. If I uncheck the "select paper source by pdf page size", it prints on legal just fine, as it should.
Ok, let's look more closely at this PDF file. What is shown as the
page size? To see this, hover the mouse at the bottom left of the
page, and a size should pop up.
8.5 x 14
Does anyone have an answer to this? I have the same problem. I've got Reader 10.1.2 on XP, with a Konica Minolta BizHub363 printer. I've confirmed this problem with multiple PDFs from different sources, and that the problem comes from checking the "Choose paper source by PDF page size" box.
Try going to the "Advanced" tab and checking "Print as Image"
Try going to "Printing Preferences" > "Advanced" tab. Disable "Postscript Pass through"
This solved the same issue for me on the BizHub C364.
