Windows 7: Wrong print size

Wrong print size

When I draw a line or square in Word 2010 and and specify the size, it will come out slightly smaller than what it should be (like 9,2 instead of 10 cm). In Photoshop, the pictures comes out with the correct size. The printer (Brother HL-2250DN laser) has been updated as far as possible with the help of the Brother support. Has anyone heard of this problem before? Is it a bug in Office 2010?

Anyone please?

I want to know if it is the printer or Word 2010 that causes my printouts to be of the wrong size. Is there anyone out there who could try and print a line that you have specified the length of and see if it comes out with the right length? It doesn't matter what printer you have, but it would have to be Word 2010.

Hi Mike222444 and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

I've only just seen this thread, so apologies for any delays.

Could it be this option?

Well, thank you

When that option is checked it prints with the wrong size and when I uncheck it prints with the right size. So problem solved, thank you very much. But to me it sounds strange that it is not the other way around, if you are setting Word to write on A4 paper and your above option is crossed then it should print with correct size?

Good catch Dwarf! I feel like I know MS Word well, but I didn't know that! Rep+
