Important notes about printing from .PDF files:
- One-page files are mostly available in both .PDF and .JPG format.
- PDF would usually be the better format for printing or viewing, unless the fonts and text formatting don’t show up correctly on your system.
- When printing a .PDF from a computer, the print dialog has a “PageSizing / Size options” or “PageScaling” setting. If you’ve never changed its default choice, that setting will be set to a choice something like “Fit to Printable Area” instead of “None” or “Actual size”. But using “Fit” is usually wrong – most .PDF files are designed with enough white-space margin. Adding extra margin by default reduces the page’s content. It won’t look right. You need to change the “Page Sizing” setting to “Actual size ,” “None” or “100%” when you print a .PDF file that already has a white-space margin.
- Some printers allow you to print directly from a flash drive. Unfortunately, this may mean you’re stuck with the “Fit to Printable Area” choice. For such printers, I usually create special .PDF files without a white-space margin. If you need no-margin files, use the “.PDF[print-area]” links.
