How to shrink document to fit screen size when printing


Scaled Printing
The procedure for specifying a scaling value and printing a document with pages enlarged or reduced to match the document to the paper size is as follows:
1. Open the printer driver setup window, and select Scaled Printing from the Page Layout list on the Page Setup tab.
figure:Select Scaled Printing for Page Layout on the Page Setup tab
2. Using Page Size, select the page size that was set with your application.
3. Do either of the following to set a scaling factor:
Select a Printer Paper Size.
Select a printer paper size, which is different from the Page Size, from the Printer Paper Size list. If the printer paper size is smaller than the Page Size, the page image will be reduced. If the printer paper size is larger than the page size, the page image will be enlarged.6c3578e0-f243-44b0-aa8e-f7bb7752ed56.jpg

figure:Printer Paper Size on the Page Setup tab
Specify a scaling factor.
Directly type in a value into the Scaling box.


figure:Scaling on the Page Setup tab
The current settings are displayed in the Settings Preview on the left side of the printer driver.
4. Click OK.
When you execute print, the document will be printed with the specified scale.
If the application software with which you created the original has the scaled printing function, configure the settings on your application software. You do not need to also configure the same setting in the printer driver. When Scaled Printing is selected, the Staple Side list box appears grayed out and is unavailable (when Duplex Printing is not selected). When Borderless Printing check box is checked for the Page Layout list, Scaled Printing cannot be selected.
Selecting Scaled Printing changes the printable area.

Hope this helps

Scanner image is askew

Base on your explainination it seems like, this is because of your setting in MP Navigator, the image may not be scanned properly. In such a case, it is necessary to match the settings in MP Navigator to the document. please do the following. 1) Match the type of the document on the platen glass to the document type set in MP Navigator. For example, when scanning a color photo, select Color Photo in Document Type of MP Navigator. 2) Match the size of the document on the platen glass to the document size in MP Navigator. For example, when the document size is A4, select A4 in Document Size of MP Navigator. (Memo) Auto Detect is set in Document Size as the default.

Document size and page size when printing

Its not a setting for page size, that must always be set to the paper size. The best way is to remove the margins in the document by editing it in a PDF editor. Alternatives are a bit of a bodge. When you print try changing the size to 115% of original.

Problem may be the paper tray. You don't say what kind of printer you have and my psychic abilities are nil.
The paper tray has sensors that tell the printer what size paper is in the tray. Make sure that the tray guides are set correctly.
By the way all paper trays are "in" trays.
Print out a config sheet to see what size paper the printer is set up for for each tray.

The size of print that comes out of the printer is extremely small even though computer shows regular size. what do i do?

If you're printing an office document, then print size is regulated by the font size chosen in said document.

If you're printing a web page, I take it you have the "print" icon on your toolbar.

Click on the arrow down for the menu, select "Page setup" - Click on font and set the size of font to 10, 12 or whatever you're comfortable with.

When i scan a single document on my canon pixma mp750, it produces the same document in separate, multiple sections. how do i fix this?

check your software print settings, and make sure it's set to the same size as your scanned document!
if it's set smaller, it will break your document up into smaller (partial) parts of the original!
good luck!
