PowerPoint 2007 refuses to print onto A3 paper

    Question

  • Hi all,

    This is really starting to do my head in.

    I have a PowerPoint presentation, which is set (under Design> Page Setup) to have slides sized for A3 Paper in Landscape.

    I am trying to print these slides to a Xerox WorkCentre 7345 - which is set to A3, Landscape.

    However, PowerPoint 2007 steadfastly refuses to print the slides correctly - if I use "Scale to fit paper", I get an A4-sized print in the middle of an A3 sheet of paper. If I uncheck "Scale to fit paper", I get the equivalent of what you would get had you printed the slide onto A3, then cut an A4 shape out of the middle (in essence, just the middle of the page).

    Everything is setup correctly, but it seems PowerPoint is totally refusing to accept the fact that I want to print A3 onto A3. Adobe Reader, with the same slides exported straight from PowerPoint, has no problem, but I can't work with the quality loss associated with that...

    Surely there must be something I can do!?

    Thanks in advance,

    Andrew
