Different results printing from Scribus or exported PDF

Post by cscj01 » Fri Feb 15, 2019 3:05 am

I have an Epson 1430 and am running Ubuntu 18.04 x64. I noticed that if I create a letter sized document (found this to be true first with Scribus but is true with LO Writer as well) and print from the application I used to create the document, the results is as expected. However, if I export the document to PDF, then the output is skewed so that the top of the document is at the very edge of the paper and everything is moved up accordingly. Is this a known problem, am I doing something wrong, or what? BTW, I am using the Turboprint driver of course.

Hello,

such a problem has not been reported yet.

If the page is actually "skewed" (e.g. a bit rotated) an explanation may be that draft printing mode is active and paper loading is quick and inaccurate. You may notice a different noise and speed during paper feed.
