Publisher 2003 and HP Deskjet D4260 - when printing in landscape, the right side gets cut off

On 2 machines in a workgroup, both have Publisher 2003.  They have menues that are in landscape, created in publisher a while ago with a different printer (Lexmark inkjet?).

Now the old printers were replaced with HP deksjet D4260s (1 on each machine).  Files are stored on a central shared drive.

they go to print the menus now and while the menues did go very close to the edge of the paper before, the right side gets cut off 1" (this is landscape printing, so it's really the bottom of the paper).

I figured the printer just can't print to the lower edge - it needs to hold the paper?

But then we find that if we tell it the paper is legal, move everything to the left  in landscape (effectively top of the paper), then print, we do get to go up to the left / bottom edge of the paper.

rather than change every document to legal, isn't there a way to tell it to not leave that 1" margin on the bottom / right?  we fool it with the landscape trick, but that's a waste.  even new docs have that 1" margin, so it's not an issue that the file was made for the old printer.

thanks!

That seems to be a "feature" of the DeskJetD4260. See:
