How to Change Zoom Setting to Print

How to Change Zoom Setting to Print

Hi, I'm new to Adobe Acrobat. I have Acrobat 6 Professional. When I went to print a pdf file I had created, I noticed that under the thumbnail image was the notation, "Zoom: 94%." The pages printed slightly smaller than they do from Word. Am I correct in assuming that the zoom notation relates to the shrunken print size? If so, how do I set zoom = 100%, or does doing that create other problems?

I'm guessing that I need to set that zoom before creating the pdf file, not afterwards. Is that correct?

Thanks for your help!

Zoom is the display on the screen. It has nothing to do with output.
Make sure in you print menu you have fit to page off, and everything at 100%

That was exactly what I needed to know. When I made the change you suggested, the zoom notation below the thumbnail on the "Print" screen changed from 94% to 100%, and the page printed exactly as it does in Word.
