Printing A3 as A4

Post by maverickarts » 06 Jan 2016, 09:13

We have a Oki A4 & A3 printer (with two trays) and when printing from Quark 2015 it prints as anything A3 as A4. I thought at first it was the printer but I have checked it and on other software it prints fine. We run several versions of Quark on different computers and it is only on the Quark 2015 machine that we have experienced this.

I have checked the print settings and also tried to make sure the settings are the same as other computers but nothing changes. The page is A3 dimensions.

The only thing that differs is that on opening it is missing some profiles...'Europe ISO Coated FOGRA27' and one that is written in chinese characters. I don't know whether this is something to do with it or not?

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Specs:
Mac OS X Maverick 10.9.5

Something else....

Just realised that our A4 is printing as A3....so something has got muddled somewhere!

Try these steps:
1. Open System Preferences.
2. Click on "Printers & Scanners" icon.
3. Change the Default Paper size to "A4" if you need to print on A4 sheet, or "A3" if you need to print on A3 sheet (change paper size as required).
4. Now go QuarkXPress and print.
