    Triangulations printing

    Ladies,
    I have the cd and love the look of the PDF when I see it on my screen. However when I print a page it cuts off the bottom of the document every time.

    Do you have luck when printing to get the whole page on printed? If so any tips?

    Thanks-

    sometimes one can adjust the print size - on my computer, I go to "file" - and then there is a "page setup ...." option, then there is a line that says "scale" and a box to put in a number - in my case 100 % means actual size, a number larger than 100 will make it bigger, a number less than 100 will make it smaller.

    After the "page setup .... " options have been changed, then I can go back to "print" -

    Just remember to change it back to the original settings when you are done.

    IF a page is outside the printer's printing limits, I don't think it can be printed...no matter how hard your try....and I've tried. If you're printing off a pattern that has a 'test square' that usually measures 1"...this method may not work for you.

    Look to see if there's a check area in the Print area that allows you to 'shrink it to fit page'. I work on 3 different computers between home and work and some have the capability and some done...guess it depends on what version of whatever program (Word 2003, 2007, 2010) you're running.

    How about trying the computer/printer at your library? or a friend's house?
    Good luck

    If you read the instructions on the PDF it tells you how to print to get accurate results. I have both of thier CDs and they work great.

    Thanks ladies--I just played with the printer settings within my actual print window. I was able to customize it. I kept trying to do this within the pdf and didn't have that option.

    I now have a special "Triangulation" printer setting and it seems to be working. I'm so glad as I think this will be a great resource for me as I have triangle phobia........

    Thanks so very much!

    I know what you mean about triangle phobia. I think I would lose what's left of my itty-bitty brain sometimes if it weren't for Triangulations.

    I'm glad you found a fix for it and hope you'll have fun making HST's that are all the same! (Now, all we have to do is sew them together exactly the same. )
