When I print some documents they do not fit properly on the page. Any suggestions for that?

When you are ready to print, you may have to request the setting of the Printer Box to "fit printer to margins" OR "fit to paper" (or similar words on your printer box). You find this after you create your puzzle and when you click on "Print/Preview your Word Search" (for example)
To print and adjust settings, you must click on the word 'File' and click on print (don't use your printer icon to print)  

When your print box appears, look to the bottom, left side of the box you should see the words: 'Page Handling' and within that section you should see a white box with a pull down arrow next to the words 'Page Scaling'.  The word in that box may say 'none' or something else. Click on the pull down arrow to change that setting so the box then reads:  "Fit to Printer Margins" or "Fit to Paper" (this is in Page Scaling).  

There should also be a checkmark in the "auto-rotate and center" box just below Page Scaling. This should fix the problem. Once you change these settings they should remain changed but check it out the next few times you print word searches, clip art, any of the abctools.
