Printing in 10.9, not 100 percent

Printing in 10.9, not 100 percent - 03/24/14 06:45 PM

This seems to happen with non standard paper sizes. Many different programs. If one uses a non-custom size it prints 100%

I have a customer with 10.9.2, CC Illustrator, even from a PDF, won't print 100%. They have an HP DesignJet 510 42" printer. He has to adjust his percentage to 112 to get 100. The latest driver is March 6 but that didn't fix it. In CS5 on a PC it printed fine, we just switched them from Windows to Mac on this work station. They're an all Mac shop now except for the server.

Just a heads up and a warning to anyone thinking of going to 10.9, seems like it's still a problem. Mountain Lion was fine from what I read.

Had to change % to percent in post Subject, would not load.

Pardon the Captain Obvious question, but is "Fit" or "Fit to Media" unchecked on all print dialog boxes?

That said, this is yet another reason to wait for the .3 (or later) update. Only a/b 25% of my output is B or Super B, but the last thing I need is to have to futz with that kind of nuisance crap.

Earth to Apple… Get your shˇt together!

I'll check on the checkboxes, thx. I'll let you know when it's fixed too.

I have had no problems printing on MANY different printers. HP, Epson, Brother…
Even with custom sizes.

No issues here either (to multiple brand printers). Another thing to check is that they are running the drivers provided by the vendor from the vendor's website. Never, ever, EVER download and install the ones that show up in the OS X software update mechanism (unless that's the only way to get them).

Ditto that. Epson is pretty good about their driver updates. Their utility lets you know when new software is available. But for the scanner on my WF, I use VueScan (which also auto-notifies).
