Using the Acrobat Reader
Note that many Acrobat documents are fully 8* x
11 inches or larger. You may think your printer
can print 8* x 11 inch pages, but in fact most
printers cannot print on the extreme outside
edges of a page, and are actually limited to
something more like 8 x 10* inches.
To print a document, please use the print icon in
the Adobe® Acrobat® toolbar, located
above the form. Then, be sure to check
the Shrink to Fit box, and the document will
automatically be scaled to fit on your printable
Some documents contain images where a light color
type is used on a dark background. These images
will generally appear correctly on your screen.
But, depending on what kind of printer you have,
they may not print correctly. (This seems to be a
problem with black-and-white laser printers in
particular.) If, when you print the document, you
see only a dark block and no type, try adjusting
your printer's properties as follows. (These
snapshots are from a Windows 95 system.)
1. From the Acrobat Print dialog box, click
the Setup button:
2. From the Windows 95 Print Setup dialog,
click the Properties button:
3. From there, click the Graphics tab and
select Use raster graphics :
4. Click OK three times.
