The 180-degree rotation trick fixed it for me (Mac OS10.15.7, Acrobat DC 2019.021.20048, Canon D1620 printer). I also tested on Big Sur 11.0.1 and it works there too. George5EC1, In a very convoluted way, the problem was miraculously solved in this way. I bought Adobe Acobat Pro DC, which allowed me to (again) ask Adobe for help, and I was told to convert the PDF file to a Word document and then print it. Miraculously, the Word document spat out neat legal and written letters. After it started working, I tried the same document as a PDF and it has been printing fine ever since! It`s like he has to print it out in Word first. Now all I have to do is open all my PDF documents with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and select “Actual Size” in the print dialog and also click “Select paper source by PDF page size”. I also installed the Brother driver as a USB connection and removed it and only use my wireless connection. I really think that converting the document to Word and printing made things work. You can get the 7-day trial version and try it out before you buy. This is the only thing you can convert the PDF file to a Word document. I print over 100 loan packages a day and it has worked perfectly ever since.
I hope it will work for you. This document explains how to print pages in legal format on letter size paper in WinTOTAL Aurora. Thank you all for publishing the workarounds! I`m a notary who signs an agent on a Mac and also has these random problems. I wasted so much paper to print pdFs properly. Turning 180 degrees works today. Good to know that I can also try exporting to Word and printing from there! How can I convert PDF files from legal size to letter size? Each history sends incorrect information to Brother printers that makes it impossible to detect programmed paper trays??? It`s hard to resolve this issue in Adobe Reader if your question is about changing or accessing other print settings and preflight options that you get with Acrobat Pro. And you know what? They allow me to download Acrobat Adobe Reader DC, as you suggested. Then I clicked on all the correct settings. After testing it, it still didn`t work. So when I called again, the technician asked me to update my paper settings in the right compartments of my printer, and then he went to my computer and restored the printer.
And we tested it and. It`s working! I am so happy. Thank you for recently purchasing a Brother 6200DW. I manually programmed the printer to print legally from the MPtray and the letter from tray 1. I also selected Select paper source by PDF format, but it still doesn`t automatically print letters and documents in legal format, what am I missing? Brother support contacted me immediately. They confirmed that the problem is related to Adobe Reader on a Mac, as the problem also occurs with other printer brands. I forgot to suggest that you select “Print as PDF” instead of printing as an image. The file is converted to a Postscript file. Open this newly created Postscirpted file in Adobe Acrobat and try to print this file instead of the original document.
Using Adobe Acobat Pro DC, I converted the PDF file to Word and tried to print. Would still not print correctly. I then removed the printer from my computer, shut it down, and restarted the computer. More information about the latest version can be found on this link: www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/ReleaseNotesDC/continuous/dccontinuousfeb2021qfe.. You will also find attached a result .pdf which is a scanned result of the print that shows the cropping/printing error problem of the page. Note that A4 pages are scanned as a legal size, but you can still size them as they were printed on the actual paper. I have exactly the same problem. I`m an NSA with a sister printer that is asked to download Adobe, etc., but it doesn`t print duel sizes.
The same kind of problem with the brother 6200 printer – 1 month old – worked very well until last week – it seems to be more related to print settings or properties that you can manually adjust via your operating system and improve driver performance. It`s so simple that you`ll kick yourself in the head. Don`t use the Acrobat program you`ve paid so much money for. Download Acrobat Reader for free, then print the Legal page on the Letter page. He he. Thank you Adobe for this fun moment. P.S. I don`t want to have to buy a new printer. This laser printer is brand new.
Hello, I hope we will talk about the same thing. For my part, it is not a question of changing the document from the legal size to the size of the letter, but I have to print in letter size because I do not have legal paper for my printer. So I just need to print in letter size. I found your “fix” by getting help from Brother to check the correct settings. I tried Foxit Reader and a trial with Foxit Editor without success to legal and letter with the “choose… Attitude. Using the Brother 6200dwt and Br3 script. Please check your success and let us know which settings YOU used. If it no longer works after cooking and share a little more information about your operating system, Acrobat Reader version and printing device model, I have the same problem, but with a PC running Windows 10.
The own documents have more than 100 pages. Adobe confirmed the bug, saying it was even in their paid products. It`s quite disappointing to learn that the bug has been reported for years. I`m a mobile signing agent for loans and I`m just getting started. I have invested so much in my new career and equipment and am no longer able to print from a printer designed for legal and letter printing. The support asked me to try the rotate 180 and it didn`t work for me. Are you successful and can someone offer me a solution? I`m willing to buy their paid version if it worked, but this week Adobe says it has the same flaw. Some of my employees have the same printer and they print well, so I don`t really know where the problem is, but I`m desperately looking for a solution. All the information should be like legal size, I just need to make it smaller to make it in letter size.
Please go to the “Adobe PDF Settings” page I am using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and trying to get my Brother Dual Tray printer to print rental documents. The documents contain a mix of legal paper and stationery, so I want him to be able to automatically choose between the paper size he needs. I checked the box “Select a paper visit by PDF page size” and it worked. But recently, I received a document with a “foreign” font that my printer couldn`t print. So I called my printing company and they told me to go to “Print”, then select “Advanced”, then select the box that selects “Print Image”. After that, it was now possible to print, but not able to choose between the letter and the legal-sized pages! Does anyone know how to solve this problem? This error was already reported in 2016. I was hoping that someone on this “Adobe Support Community” forum might have a solution like Adobe Support doesn`t. It turns out that Brother printers have a solution that I posted above for other users to find. Hopefully, one day Adobe support will fix this bug that has already been reported.
I would go to the vendor`s support website and download the latest drivers for this printer and follow the manufacturer`s step-by-step installation instructions. do not allow the operating system to automatically install its own thing. I opened my original file (legal size), then File –> Print WORKAROUND: Rotate the view of all pages 180° so that it is upside down on the screen. Then print the document as usual and all pages should be printed in their entirety. You can`t do the shooting with the free version of Adobe Reader, BUT you can open the PDF with Apple Preview, rotate the pages How to make Foxit print Letter and Legal together? Have you tried to replicate this problem with MY test file using a Mac and a Brother laser printer? Before sending the file for printing; In the print dialog box, there is a checkbox for “Select paper source by PDF page size”. Please check this before printing; It is disabled by default. The only solution I found is to run Windows on my Macbook Pro with VMWAre Fusion and print from Windows to my printer. It works well. Sometimes you may need to print a legal size report or a form on stationery. To do this, you must first print your report as a PDF and then use Adobe Reader to scale the pages to letters.
Here`s how to do it: in the printer dialog box, I select; “Select paper source by PDF page size,” it prints only the letter or right, not both. I think Adobe Support couldn`t fix the problem because the test file is only two pages long. If they create a test file of more than 100 pages with mixed letters and legal letters, they should be able to reproduce the problem. An important note: I had to use the Postscript (PS) version of the printer driver. The default multifunction driver does NOT work. When setting up your printer (System Preferences>Printer and Scanner), do not use the default/Hello configuration. It will not work. Instead, select IP from the menu bar, enter the IP address of your printer, and then select “Select software…” ” in the drop-down menu at the bottom of the drop-down menu. Then select your PostScript driver.
There you go! Please also check out this link: community.adobe.com/t5/Acrobat/Manually-installing-PDF-Printer/td-p/4527800 Thank you for your help. I am a new NSA and I have printed everything legal to be sure. I already had Adobe DC for my church work and it worked exactly as you said. Thank you again. then it started printing only pages of letters – now it prints at some point – then w error message that the MP tray needs paper This is not necessarily the most efficient way, but I simply printed in a new file with the ability to shrink on paper (8.5X11). The document then shrunk. The PDF file is attached. For printing to the Adobe PDF printer, DO NOT CHECK the print in a file.
The printer must take care of it. If you are printing to a file, print to a PS file (NOT PDF), which will then need to be opened in Distiller to create the PDF file.
