you should try to produce a PDF and print from acrobat.

you can start acrobat and open the PDF file you have generated and keep it open.

as soon as you generate a new PDF, you can tell acrobat to reload the file.

then you have a good preview, can reliably print to your home printer and are sure that you have a good PDF which you can bring to a print shop and let print.

it might seem a bit cumbersome, but first creating a PDF *is* a good idea!

have a nice evening
