The print area is set. When I changed the orientation from Landscape to portrait, I was able to drag the dotted line down a few rows and then I changed it back to landscape. Its strange but it worked for me

Perhaps you’re near/at the limit of what you can fit on a page?

that is most probably the case. By playing around with the settings I eventually got it to work
