I guess my questions is about absolute positioning...... - Adobe Acrobat Windows

Here is my issue. We have created a PDF with form fields. The PDF was a Word doent converted to PDF. We have placed a form field at the very bottom of the doent (on the screen, it appears at the very bottom edge of the doent), however when we print, it prints almost an inch higher from where it should. The doent size is the same as what it is being printed to (8.5" x 11"). Any suggestions on how to have this form field print at the very bottom of the page as it is displayed?...

    First, it may be impossible to do what you want--the printers that can print all the way to the edge of the page cost many thousands of dollars.

    Assuming there is at least some margin, you can try setting the page scaling setting in the Print dialog to "None." However, this may result in the form being either partially or completely cut off.

    My $200 HP can do that.

    Check when you print, if the box "shrink oversized pages to paper size" is selected. This will shrink the printed pages even though they might be the proper size. De-select it and see if it will work.
