Can anybody comment on paper size issues when printing?
Are the built in forms (such as the Invoice form in Quickstart) hard-wired for a specific paper size such as US Letter? Or should they just work for A4 as well?
I observed that one PC was printing the page correctly while printing from another PC, to the same printer, I observed that the right hand side of the page was cropped.
Printing to PDF I observed that the writing goes right up to the very right hand side of the PDF on screen. The PDF properties say the document is 203 × 279 mm
On the computer that prints OK, I'm guessing something is silently scaling it to the real paper size. I don't know if that is happening in PostBooks, in Qt, in Cups or in the driver.
On the other computer, I worked around the problem by going into the driver settings in Gnome:
- Administration -> Printing
- select my printer, right click the printer, click Properties
- click "Job Options"
- tick "Scale to fit"
However, this is a global setting that may impact other applications - it would be really useful to have this "Scale to fit" option visible and set by default in the Print dialog box of Postbooks
