all im trying to do is print on standard 8.5" X 11" paper but for some reason it keeps cutting off the top and the bottom. ive tried changing the plotter settings around but to no avail. its like theres a certain amount that it refuses to pring on the bottom. no matter what, the is always a .5" gap at the bottom. i can get it to print to the very edge of the top. just having issues with the bottom. ive also tried using plot calibration and all of that is fine.... PLS HEEEEELLLLPPPPP!!!!!!!!
PS please see photo for what im getting. and yes its doing it when i make pdf's too.
How does it look when you do a print preview?
There can be margins build into the PC3 file, and/or the printer itself (space along the edge that cannot be physically printed to). It looks like maybe part of your drawing is within this soft/hard margin area.
in the pring preview it is being cut off aswell. but when i select a different printer on the network it prints just fine. ive tried duplicating the pc3 file that the different printer is using but it still wont print in the bottom .5" of the paper. i have an HP Deskjet D1660... any ideas??
This sounds like an issue of the margins of the plotter/printer.
When you are in a layout tab, the dashed lines represent the printable margines that the printer can print within. Make sure that what you want to print is within the dashed lines.
Hope this helps
