Printing classic pages from Mac OS X

Has anyone successfully printed classic pages from a Mac running OS 10.4.x? I just tried printing some calendar pages and it always wants to center the page on the 5.5 x 8.5 page instead of honoring the hole punch margins.

What is your page setup ?

Have you defined a custom page size or set your paper size to "Statement" ?
Unless you do that, you are telling your Mac to print onto Letter size paper (usually the default)

Yes I've done that. I can get it to print fine on the 5.5x8.5 sheet of paper except it always wants to center it on the page and not offset it slightly (as the PDF indicates) for the hole punch.

What application are you using to print ?

If you are using Acrobat Reader, turn OFF auto-rotate/center and set Page Scaling to NONE

I've tried both Preview and Acrobat Reader. Both produce the same results. I've done both the settings you suggest in reader.

Is there no one out there that has a Mac that has gotten these things to print successfully?

Wrong question!

I think the problem is that nobody else has had the problem you are having. I haven't printed pages much, but everything I've printed has come out as advertised. So, I don't know what I could tell you that would make it work!

Slbailey, please contact me

Click on my name and then use the contact tab to e-mail me. I will send back a few test files.

The problem might be in the files as opposed to the printer.

Here's a silly question:

What are your margins set to in the DIY application ?
If you did not change them, they default to 5mm all around.
That might explain the centered page.
