Sorry, I no longer have a linux PC to test anything, It's actually been a few years since I have, everything I know pretty much stopped working when Linux Mint started to be a thing.
The issue you describe is common in every OS, and is almost always the fault of an application setting, but without a Linux PC to dig into, and no LibreOffice either, Google is my only recourse.
A big thank you for your suggestions.
The problem has not been solved but something seems to have happened on one document I was adjusting as per the links you posted. It is now printing a little larger - but no where near the full size!
Any more suggestions welcome.
very kind regards
If you save as pdf and print that , does it come out in A4?
Because it sounds like the Page Setup option application side is acting up. That is what it would be in the Windows/OSX world when it isn't the driver since that works fine in the other apps.
Hi Everyone, Help!
I have just replaced my 8860 MFP with a spare as the first developed sheet feeding problems. Other than that, printing worked fine.
On connecting the second 8860 MFP, A4 pages as Word or Libreoffice equivalent documents print at a much reduced size - perhaps 1/4 the size that they should.
I have tried creating a new document in case the changeover somehow affected settings, but this has just printed out at a much reduced size too.
PDF documents seem to print at the correct size.
All settings appear ok on A4 etc both on PC and 8860 settings.
What is going on?
