Can any one help. What do I change for my printer to print the full page.  The displayed page shows what I want to print, but when I show the print preview, and the printed page, I only get part width of the page. I have paper size correct so it must be in the "set print area". I have a Brother  HL3170 CDW printer.

Some printers just simply can't print edge to edge.


And good luck these days adjusting onscreen to come out right. Focus on the output options, not the document options


I saw a perfectly screwed up looking letter format doc that went skew when you adjusted to what we DO use, put if I went print and told it to booklet mode as-is, and destination A4 it did it perfectly well.


Margins are what you want to find. And scaling. Not 100% but fit page and min margins

My guess is your problem is the document is in US Letter page size format which is wider than an A4.

Obsequious hypocrite

Its my Bank statement PDF that is the problem. It has been printing them successfully.


It now leaves the $ value  off the Print Preview and print area (Not in PDF view) so must be in the print area selection. am using A4 paper and the printer default page size is A4


I can print other documents no problem
