Image "truncated" - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I have an ai drawing set up for 800x600 px size. Distiller is my default printer. In Illustrator 10, I see a dotted vertical line across the artboard about 1/4 the way from the left, which I assume is supposed to indicate a "second" page. And, indeed, when I import my ai drawing into some DTP software, the image is truncated, as though clipped to a page size that seems like US-letter portrait. I don't want that. I don't care about printed page size. I want a whole image on one page. How do I resolve this clipping/truncating behaviour? Thanks, ...

    Default Image "truncated"

    I have an ai drawing set up for 800x600 px size. Distiller is my default printer.

    In Illustrator 10, I see a dotted vertical line across the artboard about 1/4 the way from the left, which I assume is supposed to indicate a "second" page.

    And, indeed, when I import my ai drawing into some DTP software, the image is truncated, as though clipped to a page size that seems like US-letter portrait.

    I don't want that. I don't care about printed page size. I want a whole image on one page. How do I resolve this clipping/truncating behaviour?

    Thanks,

    Sean,

    Double-click on the page tool to centre the printable area on the page

    Thanks Len,

    But the page is supposed to be 800 x 600, however it's acting like US-letter and there's a dashed line to show that too.

    IOW, I can't seem to get a page size that works ... and I don't care about printable page, anyway. I want the artboard to be a certain size regardless of printing, printers, etc.

    Thanks for the assist, tho!

    Sean,

    With Distiller set as your target printer you can change the media size to
    be larger than your artboard

    Distiller was set as my default Windows XP printer, generally it is. But, thanks for the heads up, maybe something got stuck.

    Cheers,
