Acrobat XI Printer - Set to fit page

I have a web page that sends a report directly to the user's printer using PHP.  Prior to Win 10, it worked fine.  Now, it will not "fit to page", so data columns on the right side are cut off and I'm ending up with one or two lines overflowing to the next page.  The same behavior occurs with PDF995 printer, which also worked before.  There have been no code changes to the program.

I have opened Acrobat XI Pro and set the default to fit to page.  It works fine if I open a PDF and print it, but not if I select Acrobat Printer as the printer.

Is there some code I can add to the print data stream to force PDF output to "fit page"?

You need to make the change in the print preferences under devices and printers.  If that fixes it, post back.

I would make that change in Printing Defaults on the Advanced tab in the printer's properties:  if you make the change in Printing Preferences, the change may not stick (and it definitely won't apply to any other users on the same machine).  Using the defaults button on the Advanced tab should change that setting for all users.

Went through ALL of the printer properties again.  Best I could find was a setting for the printer to always make the output 90%, 80%, etc.  The option for "fit page" is not there.  (See the attached screen shot.)

My guess is that it is just not available in this manner.  Am I wrong on that?

Back to the original question, is there a command that can be added to the print stream?

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

I hate to say it; but, I couldn't find any, either.
My best suggestion would be to set the option and print to a file.  Then you could inspect the file ( postscript is mostly readable text ) and find the string.  Try it on something dumb like an excel spreadsheet with one row and too many columns so you don't have to wade through a thousand pages of text.

Examined file that was created by printing wide spreadsheet with "all columns on one page" setting.  Searched text for "scal" and did not find.
Guess it just can't be done, but would sure be nice if Adobe added it Acrobat Printer options.
Will just have to tell users to check output and scale down, if required.
Going to close the question and award you the points.
