SSRS default printing without margins

I've designed a number of reports which, during development, were not meant to be printed out on paper.  But people are printing them out to bring to meetings with them and they are spanning multiple pages or being cut off so I am adapting them to be print-ready.  I've modified the data and tables to fit 6.5" by 9" with 1" margins but my report is being cut off.  I've tried nesting it all in a rectangle sized 6.5" by 9" and aligned it in the center of the report but no luck.  It prints perfectly if I go into the printer settings to set the margins to 1" but people don't want to have to manually set this.  They should be able to go to Actions > Print and have it come out perfectly fitted to a letter-sized paper.  I've removed the header and footer and moved the data in the body of the report but nothing I've done so far has helped solved the issue.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

I usually set my page size to be the same as the interactive page size.

See how that pans out..

I have tried that setting them both to 6.5in by 9in with 1in margins and to 8.5in by 11in with 0in margins.  It's still aligning it to the left even though in design it is centered.

I'm not sure what I did but it's working now.  I was playing with height/widths in Report and Body properties so something must have finally clicked.  Thanks for reply!
