What happen when you make the print pdf from indesign, does the pdf is also misaligned.
when i export it to a pdf it's centered correctly.
What happen when you make the PDF thourgh the Print option.
Go to file>print
choose printer as Adobe pdf or postscript and then check.
i gave it a try and that printed correctly as well!
Is it happening with the single document or all the document., if it with the single document then we need to check the file
If it is with all the file then check with the different printer. and update your printer driver
it's with all the documents.
i've tried creating new docs and i get the same result.
as i mentioned earlier, i transferred some of the files over to my wife's computer
hooked the same printer up to it
and they printed fine there.
so the problem has to be with the indesign on my computer.
i already tried updating the driver on my computer.
and it made no difference.
this is seriously making my head hurt.
mr. spier, i was SO hoping your idea would work!
i figured that corrupt preferences HAD to be the problem and i couldn't wait to get home to try it!
but it didn't work.
so i tried it again.
and it still didn't work.
any other ideas?
or is my machine haunted?
sooper triple huge thanks to you and manish for helping so far!
This isn't a solution so much as a way to get it to work until you find one, but I can't print to my cheapie printer from InDesign, so I export to PDF and print that to the printer, which works for me. Just a band-aid, but it could get you over the hump for now.

Can you please check after following these ssteps:-
--Check after printing from the new user account,
--Check after disabling the startup items
--Uninstall and reinstall the printer on your computer.
And verify that all the settings in the dialogs are the same when you try to print from your computer and your wife's. If it works one place, it should be working in both.
i think i found the problem.
in the printer preferences there's a pulldown menu that has a 'quality and media' section.
the paper was not set to 'plain paper' so i switched it to that and now it's printing correctly.
now i KNOW i had it on plain paper before and things still weren't working.
perhaps once i tossed the preferences and set it back to plain paper
that was the magical combination?
let's hope it stays that way.
thank you for ALL your help.
it was much appreciated!
for anyone still having this problem... i was too, exactly the same. couldn't figure it out. nothing here worked. today i selected borderless printing with plain paper, and it warned me not to but i'm a rebel so i did it anyways, and lo and behold... it prints properly like that. solved. hope it ends your frustration.
11.08.16 Here's how I fixed it - I'm using Adobe CC.
File/Print and then look for the box that says "General" on the top. Scroll down to "Setup" and then look in the "Options" box on the right. Then change the pull down menu that says "Page Position" to "Centered". Mine was set to "upper left" until I made the change.
