Each morning when i come into work there is a morning report I am responsible for putting together and distributing to 14 people around the office. For whatever reason, when I set the print settings to LANDSCAPE and then to FIT TO 1 to 1, it shrinks the page down so skinny that it only fills about 1/4 of the page horizontally. But, when I have anyone else in the office open the file on their computer and set the print settings to LANDSCAPE, FIT TO 1 to 1, it fits the page perfectly and comes out just how our GM wants it to look. I have played with the margins and done everything else I can think of to make it print right from my computer so I don't have to wait for others to arrive to have it print correctly, but I can't fix the problem. Suggestions? Thanks

Are your print settings defaulting to the same paper size etc as the other people in your office?

select the area you want to print.
go to "File" - "set print area"
then do your landscape 1:1 thing

Yes, its defaulting to the same paper size -- just the standard 8.5" X 11".

I've tried re-setting the print area, as well, and still end up with the same result.

Might be worth re-installing the print driver on your pc. They get corrupted sometimes.
