Printing
« on: May 08, 2017, 11:54:21 pm »
When printing, about the last 5 characters on a line are not printed, straight down the page. No problem printing with images.

Bert, the general recommendation is not to print directly from Scribus but to export to PDF first and then print from the PDF reader instead.

This way you have the PDF "proof" which you can check for problems before printing. If the PDF looks wrong then there could be something wrong with Scribus. If the PDF looks right but the printed copy looks wrong then it's probably the print process - or the PDF reader - that is at fault.

Until printing directly in Scribus is properly implemented - if it ever is - print from the PDF instead.
