When Print Document On is selected, the drop-down menu shows the media sizes on which
you can print. The list contains all of the standard media sizes that are supported by the selected
media source and any custom sizes that you have created. When Print Document On is
selected, Scale to Fit is automatically selected.
Scale to Fit
The Scale to Fit option box specifies whether each formatted document page image is scaled to
fit the target media size. By default, Scale to Fit is selected when Print Document On is
selected. If the setting is turned off, then the document page images will not be scaled, and are
instead centered at full size on the target media. If the document size is larger than the target
media size, then the document image is clipped. If it is smaller, then it is centered within the
target media. The following illustration shows preview images for a document formatted for legal-
size media with the Print Document On check box selected, and the target size specified as
Preview images - Legal on Letter; Scale to Fit off (left) and on (right)
When the size for which the document is formatted (that is, the logical size) differs from the
target size, the preview image uses a dashed gray line to show the boundaries of the logical
page in relation to the target page size.
