Hello, i have been working on a program that creates pdf invoice with the norwegian "giro" style of paper. ( a4 with finish template for price, account no etc...)

and well, i have got it to work printing out with my own mac... but when i try to print it out with a windows based computer on the same printer the text on the pdf get missplaced... i think i have figured out whats causing it... but im not sure how to fix it. in the print settings it says preview is 96% of the pdf on windows and on mac it says 100% picaz zoom.

I have used several hours trying to figure out how to override it... hope someone can assist me with a solution.

Greetings,
Jørgen Skar

from the printer properties while you are trying to give print, double check each and every settings
make sure zoom % and other settings 100%.

I mean click to print the document, then from the print dialog box, select the printer and then click on properties. you see the settings and check there.
