Edits - Add Example - PDF Print setup

 

I downloaded the template from your regional Avery site.

 

Opened template in Office Professional 2019.

 

Oddly, although there is not actual text in the template, it showed as being in "German".  Translated that and all is well, I guess.  ?

 

As with other Avery templates I've used over the years, this template downloads as an "old style" Word document (.doc format).

 

Checked the Layout > Margins > Custom Margins setting

 

Top and bottom margins differ from one another (common) - the margins are compatible with the printer's allowed minimum (3 mm / .1 inch).

 

If you are printing directly from Word and the Full Feature Software is installed for the printer, the margins / layout should not pose any issues.

 

That said, if printing from other than Word, the .6 margin at the top might cause an unexpected misalignment in the Y direction (vertical).  For example, if the template was saved as a PDF file, and "fit" was selected (as opposed to "Actual size"), the content might shift.

 

What else?

The X direction of the document contents (left-right / horizontal) shifts slightly when the document is converted to "modern" Word format (.docx).  The document should print - but the results might not be exactly as obtained on other printers, other Word versions, other "anything".

 

What to do?

Try printing directly from within Word

Setup:

File > Word > Options > Advanced

In Section Print (about 2/3 of the way down)

Consider UNCHECKING "Scale content for A4 or 8.5 x 11" paper sizes

If changed, Click OK to save changes

 

NOTE:  TEST on plain paper!

 

What else?

Save the completed Word document template as a PDF file.

NOTE:  Saving the document to PDF format transfers the margins and format to the PDF file.

 

Adobe Reader DC – Needed Whether You Use It or Not

If you have not done so,

Reinstall / Update your PDF Reader (Adobe Reader DC /Optional  Foxit Reader)

HINT:  Watch out for and UNCHECK unwanted extra software

 

NOTE:  Adobe Reader DC software should be installed even if you do not normally open / view / print PDF files directly from the Adobe Reader DC software.

 

Open the PDF file in Reader DC

Click the printer icon

Set Page Size > Actual size

Click on Properties

Find and Check / Adjust tab(s) for paper size

Find and Check / Adjust the settings for Media (kind of paper) - set to thick, HP Brochure matte, or whatever is closest

Click OK to exit the Properties menu

When ready, Click Print

Hi Dragon Fur,  I did what you suggested and unchecked "Scale content for A4 or 8.5 x 11" paper sizes" and it worked

Thank you so much
