I don't know if this will help, but here's a thread I found by Googling that might give you some clues:

If you haven't done this: Set the print scale to NONE. That will print what is on the page exactly the size it it.

when all else fails take what you print out and take it to a copier that can change it's size. I know what you mean about getting so frustrated sometimes.
