Windows Printing Problem, crops.

Windows Printing Problem, crops.

Windows Printing Problem, crops.

Hi, wondering if anyone has come across this problem...

I created some layouts on my mac, and to print, I scale it 80% and print. All done via button when I want to print)

When I switch to my windows machine and try to print to the same printer, it won't reduce.  If I force it to scale to 80%, it takes what would have been printed at 100% (cropped on right and bottom) and shrinks that whole section down to 80% of the paper. It's still missing that 20% of the image.  Had it "redrawn" the 20%, it would print normal.  Make sense?

I've tried it one 2 different printers.  It's Filemaker specific.  I'm on 8.5.1

Thanks for the help, I have one more question, but will make a new post.
