    I am trying to print out a simple diagram thats original size is simply 250-200 pixels.

    When i print it out it is streaching it to cover a full page !!!

    I click "print" then "preview" before clicking the "OK" button to actually print and i cant get the image any smaller then covering the damn page !!!!

    What am i missing ??????????????????

    HELP !!!!!!!!!!

    frustrated beyond belief !!!

    When the print dialog comes up, make sure you are seeing the expanded dialog box and not the abbreviated one. Click on the black triangle located next to the printer selection field to toggle between the expanded dialog box and the abbreviated dialog box.

    In the expanded dialog box you can set many different options. You want to set scale to 100%, not scale to fit.
