Ruth, as I mentioned to you previously, I am reasonably certain that 
your problem (and mine) is a problem with PDF printers not compensating 
for the non print area that Ink Jet Printers have. (Perhaps Laser 
Printers too. I don't know if they have non print areas) It is 
definitely not a Scribus problem,IMO.

I have had a solution offered to me for this problem but it involves 
editing the Registry in Windows. I intend to try this when I get a 
little more comfortable with this procedure. If this works, as I believe 
it will, I will get back with you via Scribus Mailing List. It may be a 
week or more but I _will_ report on the results.
