Thanks. I never noticed that before when I tried to print individual PDF pages. I tried it but I had severe clipping. I didn't have it when I choose preview in the print command widow. What is the quick and easy way to have Preview print PDF pages scaled to fit. There has to be something better than using the scale selection in the page setup window. It was set up automatically to 65% for the PDF page. Which obviously is too large. Sure I can play around with the numbers, but how about using the KISS method as Reader does. Scale to fit. Maybe a few years back I tried to print individual PDF pages via Preview, but gave up in frustration and and took the easy route. Also on certain occasions I'm unable to copy and paste text from a PDF page and yet Reader works flawlessly.

It sounds like that 65% was just a leftover setting from a previous print (it remembers your last print options by default). Restoring that to 100% should give you what you're looking for. I've never had any real issues printing PDF's from preview at all.

Set to 100%. Didn't work. Now even the preview of the page I want to print shows it way too large. But I decided to print the page anyway. The result was a waste of ink, paper and time. Without Preview having a decent scale to fit page for printing , I'll stick with Adobe when it comes to PDFs.

Have you tried checking off the "Scale to fit paper size" found under the paper handling pulldown option? Preview has all the features you need if you look for them, but iIf you prefer acrobat I guess that's your choice

Also it sounds like the PDF you're trying to print is laid out for a different paper size than you're trying to print on, just for the sake of completeness .. it's usually not this painful to print from preview and get what you are looking for.
