FAQ Answers - QSheet

Are you having problems printing sheets to letter-sized paper through qSheet?

Due to uncontrollable changes in the way qSheet sends documents to the print queue Acrobat or Acrobat Reader will have to be set up in one of two way determined by paper size. If you normally print to 11x17 Tabloid please see Screenshot 1. If you normally print to letter-sized paper, please see Screenshot 2. If you need to print to any other paper size you will need to play around with Adobe Reader’s printing options

Screenshot 1:

qSheet Auto-Rotate and Center checked with Choose Paper Source

Note above that "Auto-Rotate and Center" is checked, "Choose Paper Source by PDF page size" is checked, "Page Scaling" is set to 'None' and a print queue established a default paper size for 11x17 (Tabloid) printing. You will also notice the proper paper dimensions in the Preview window.
