When changing a view within a sharepoint page, it changes the column width meaning that we cannot print it on one page

We have a peculiar instance within CompanyWeb based on Sharepoint 2010 - when going into a page concerning tasks, print preview (by right clicking the page) shows every column ok. However, if we then edit the view to show active tasks, the description column widens and the print preview does not display the whole width of the screen unless zoom settings are played with which renders the print out unreadable.

We set the print preview to fit to page, shrink, landscape etc but the issue persists.

I know that this is because print preview is essentially rendering the web page as it is seen on the screen but is there a way to resize the column in sharepoint that is causing the issue?

Thanks

try doing a dataview with SharePoint Designer (2010). With dataview you should be able to specify the column size.
