    PDF print custom size on A3 paper

    Hello Lounge

    I would like to print a PDF document with a custom size(120x320mm) on A3 paper.
    Yes, our Konica-Minolta printer does have an A3 tray :-)

    When I print to A3, the output is out of scale. It is difficult to explain, but the output is only 116x31+ mm - like it has been scaled just a little bit.

    There are two problems:
    1) The scaling - I would very much like the output to match EXACTLY.
    2) The print output is aligned to the far left side of the A3 paper. I would like it to be centered on the page.

    If I check the document properties of the PDF document, it is 11,999 by 31,996 mm.
    In the print document box, I have the following settings:
    Page Scaling: None
    Auto-Rotate and Center: Checked

    Preview:Composite
    12x32
    Document: 12,0 x32,0 cm
    Paper: 12,0 x 32,0 cm

    Printer Properties: The only things set there are Paper Size A3 and No Zoom (100%)

    I have tried opening and printing the PDF document both using Adobe Acrobat and FoxIt Reader. The problem is the same...

    I would very much appreciate any help at all with this problem. It is driving me nuts
    If you need further information, please let me know and I will provide it.

    Thank you in advance.

    /Simon

    It sounds as though Adobe Reader is set correctly. Is it possible that your printer will scale print jobs that intrude into what it considers its unprintable margin areas?

    jscher2000 thank you for your reply.
    Your suggestion is absolutely possible. I just can't find any place in the driver to "un-scale" the print job...
