    I'm printing PDFs from email to a network printer via the airprint service installed on an Windows XP machine. It prints like a champ but with one small issue. The text is cutoff on the left side by one character. I've tried to tweak this by changing the printer preferences on the XP box but airprint seems to ignore them.

    Any ideas how to solve this?

    thanx in advance

    Solved - was not technically an Airprint issue

    The PDF I was printing from my email was actually created slightly shifted to the left. I fixed the problem with creation and now it's printing great.

    Since Airprint via Windows sends the file without any type of scaling (fit to page), this problem only showed when printed that way. Any other printing, including to a native Airprint printer, fit the document to the page.
