I am using Windows 7. I recently installed Adobe Acrobat Pro 9, which also installed Adobe's PDF Print Driver, allowing me to print documents directly to a PDF when I go to File --> Print.
Unfortunately I have found that when printing vector-based graphics from Silverlight applications Adobe's PDF Print driver scales down the content of each page to fit into just the upper left quadrant of each page, leaving the right quadrant and bottom half of each PDF page blank. I'm not sure why it is doing this (printing it to paper does not do this, printing it to XPS does not do this, etc.). I have tried another freeware PDF printer driver and it prints the content on the entire page (as expected), although it seems to produce lower-quality documents with artifacts around the letters and so on.
I am wondering if there has been an update or fix to this issue by Adobe, but I'm not sure on how to do the following:
- Determine what version of the printer driver I am using
- Download and install the latest version
I've tried doing to Devices and Printers and right-clicking on the printer driver and choosing both Printer Properties and Properties, but I don't see any version numbers. And while Adobe's Printer Drivers page lists the most recent version as 4.2.6, I worry I'm looking in the wrong place as the page looks very dated (talking about software for Windows 95/98, for instance).
