In Topic: Generated reports not scaling properly

I also read the knowledge base article. I'm not a programmer, so it makes no sense to me that the display and print operations should use the same API (or other program module) and settings. Display and print are fundamentally different ways of presenting data. If Microsoft is forcing this issue upon software developers (such as RM), then it is a bug in Microsoft's policies. It is absolutely STUPID for users to be expected to modify their display settings in order to generate proper print output.

It's true that I've kept using a very reliable (and inexpensive) HP printer, and Print-to-PDF software that's been around a few years. I have no idea what HDiPI display menas, or why that should be affecting print sizes.


Sounds like buggy software somewhere, to me.

In most (but not all !!!) fields, you can get to the Windows Character Map app by hitting Ctrl-T


Strangely, hitting Ctrl-T to insert special charadters into a Source Details field, will actually place the special character into the Master Source Comments field (from which you can Ctrl-X Ctrl-V to move the special character to the Source Details field where it SHOULD have been inserted. Another old weirdness of RM that needs to get fixed....

I moved in to a new laptop a half year ago, and had noticed that my printed Publisher reports were printing incorrectly. The images (Pedigree charts, photos, certificates, etc.) were all printing too small on the page, as if the right & bottom margins for the images were set too large. I checked all of my printer settings, and couldn't find anything that changed the print results.


I just did a test run on Display Scaling. I use a 125% value to make my screen fonts legible and convenient.

When I set the Display scaling to 100%, the printed graphics came out correctly !!!!!!!


Why in the world should the Display scaling affect print size?

I cover these situations in the Fact Notes.
