My article printed out too small or too large. How can I print the article so I can read it?

Printing an Article

View the article as usual using the Adobe Acrobat Reader plug-in (within the browser window).

1.      Check the image size in the lower left hand corner of the Acrobat screen.
What you do next depends on how large the image is:

If your article is smaller than the paper you are printing to:

1.      Click the print icon on the Acrobat tool bar to display the print dialog box.

2.      Select Fit to Paper Margins from the Page Scaling drop-down menu. This will enlarge your article to fill most of the page.

3.      Click OK.

 

If your article is larger than the paper you are printing to:

1.      Select the Snapshot Tool, and click and drag to select a portion of the document to print.

2.      Click the print icon on the Acrobat tool bar to display the print dialog box.

3.      Make sure that Selected graphic is chosen.

 

4.      Click OK.

To change your paper size

If the document can fit on legal size paper (11"x 14"), or tabloid size (11" x 17") and the paper is available, you can select to print to these sizes.

1.      Click the print icon on the Acrobat tool bar to display the print dialog box.

2.      Click Properties to display the properties dialog.

3.      Select your desired paper size (Legal or Tabloid, for example.) Then select the orientation (landscape or portrait).

4.      Click OK to close the Properties dialog.

5.      Click OK.

Some other options on the print dialog that may be useful:

·         To center the article on the paper,
check the Auto-rotate and center pages checkbox.

·         To shrink an article/page map for printing,
select Shrink large pages from the Page Scaling drop-down menu. The percentage that the article will be enlarged or reduced is displayed below the print preview, on the bottom right of the window.
