How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

Check the Margin settings under File>Page Setup to make sure that the right margin is OK. Also check the paragraph format to make sure that you do not have a negative right indent which could be causing the text to extend into an area that is unprintable by your printer.
This looks like the paper is not aligned in the tray. Try to move the paper to the side it`s not printing and try again. Hope this will help.
One or more clogged nozzles preventing ink from getting to the page is the most common cause of a printer skipping lines. Through normal use, small amounts of ink can collect and dry in the printhead blocking the nozzles.
Click Margins, or navigate to the screen to change the page format and adjust margins. Increase the top and bottom margins to a minimum of 13 mm (0.5″). You might need to increase this amount slightly if the issue is not resolved the first time.
To print doucment to pdf format without page cut off, you need setup the right print options, such as: scale to fit or fill page, select right print area, select the right paper size to print, etc.
In Word, borderless printing can be achieved by setting the page margins to 0 under “file” and “page setup”. To print borderless with Adobe Reader, you have click the “file” tab and select “print”. Select your printer from the drop-down menu. Now click on “properties” and select “borderless printing”.
Partial prints are a common issue with printers and there are several main reasons it can occur: Problem with the print spooler (on Windows PCs) Overload of the GPU on later model Macs. Dodgy USB cord.
The usual reason borders don`t print is something called your “printer`s minimum margin setting.” There are a couple of ways to figure that out so that you can adjust your margins accordingly before you print. Go to Design > Page Borders.
Do one or both of the following: On the Indents and Spacing tab, change the Line spacing box to something other than Exactly. For example, change the Line spacing setting to Single. Change the At setting to a setting slightly larger than the font point size you are using in your document.
On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Margins. Do one of the following: To use predefined margins, click Normal, Wide, or Narrow.
Depending on your hardware, you may use the Windows Logo Key + PrtScn button as a shortcut for print screen. If your device does not have the PrtScn button, you may use Fn + Windows logo key + Space Bar to take a screenshot, which can then be printed.
If the design is very close to the left side, it will probably be cut off because your printer can`t print that close to the edge. But this is a very important mode, especially for things like official forms which must be exact.
When the aspect ratio of the image does not match the paper size and [Borderless] is selected, part of the image will be cut off when printed. Confirm that the paper size matches the image aspect ratio before printing.
Your copies may be cut off if the paper is loaded incorrectly in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) or paper tray, or if the paper size setting is not programmed correctly.
That`s usually because the printer driver itself has default borders set for each document, and until they`re changed your document will print with a border or your program will tell you that you`re trying to print a document that`s too large for the page.
The problem is that the width of the columns in your page is not enough, so not all text can`t be included in the page, so you will see the text cut off when you print to PDF. You can increase the width of a random column, and this problem does not exist.
