I have a few users with Windows 7 and HP Deskjet 5650 printers.
The printers will print just fine with 8.5x11 pages, but when you try to print with the legal size paper, the printer will scale the document down to 8.5x11 size.
- I've deleted the printer and print driver(s) from the local print server
- Installed the printer with the latest Windows update driver
- Tried both available drivers, only one would actually work with the printer.
I then tried to select Properties → Paper → Size "legal", then went to the "Effects" tab, selected "Print Document on legal size" and tried "Scale to fit" and without. This didn't even print at all, just says there's a job with either option.
I then tried to use "% of normal size", left it at 100%. This didn't change the size, still printed on 8.5x11.
