Printing from Excel 2010 creates page breaks after every column

Post by Joerg Gerlach » Mon Oct 15, 2018 2:03 pm

Hi,

in build 327.0 of PDF-XChange Pro v7 we encountered the following problem. Printing to the PDF-XChange Standard printer and choosing a custom pre-defined page size creates pdf files with dozens of pages, each one column wide.

Steps to reproduce:

- create a new excel document and fill it with some data
Image

- choose the PDF-XChange Standard printer, goto the printer properties and select a predefined page format like B2 (JIS) or some selfdefined page format
Image

- print and view the PDF
Image

- view the page breaks in Excel
Image

This problem happens to some of the predefined page formats and also to any self defined page format (which we use a lot).

The problem is mitigatable if you do not use a predefined page format but instead set the page size using the size parameters.

The result looks like this:

Is there a way our users can use the predefined page formats with Excel that we centrally deploy over registry keys via group policy? I guess this is a bug which might need correction.

Thank you in advance,

Hello Joerg,

I've asked a colleague working on our printing drivers to take a look and advise why this is happening. He will review the topic directly and will post some further advice, or ask you some questions if necessary!

Regards,
Stefan
