Hi guys,

Having a bit of a problem when printing from a mac to our colour network printer.

Currently we have a wide range of mac, from Ibooks, powerbook G4 all the way to intel based machines. All are running OS X 10.4.11, we also have half our office on a PC environment as well.

Now the problem I am having is this. When a mac tries to print to our OKI9800 colour printer for A3, the document will come out A4 size on the A3 paper. Now if printing from a PC, you click print, then go into the properties of the printer itself and select the paper source from the printer. I can't seem to find this option on a mac

See screen shots below for the pc screens to show you what i mean:

Click print on a PC:

Then click on properties on the top right hand side:

Then choose paper source and select A3, now the PC can print to A# at doesn't appear i can do this on a mac....does anyone have any suggestions....

check the page scaling option on the mac side (its one of the print options in acrobat)
