I am using acrobat 8 and excel 2002 SP3 on Windows XP.
Attached are two PDF files of one of my excel sheets (removed all data, only left borders). The first is a scan of my printer output with the correct output. The second is the squished output I get when I go to File > Print and print to the adobe PDF printer.
Why does printing as PDF change the ratio of height to width? It should just fill the page and create the same (or at least very similar) sized output to the regular printer.
I have tried for several hours every possible combination of options on the PDF printer, the excel margins, excel page setup, fit to page or adjust to % options. I have tried numerous other free PDF software (PDF995, PDFCreator, AlltoPDF, etc). Nothing works. I have never been this boggled by a computer problem.
I'm hoping someone has seen something similar to this and knows what to do to get the proper output.
