Page Setup changes when printing - Adobe Illustrator Macintosh

Illustrator 10 is giving me problems. I am running Panther. When I created my page set up, tabloid size, either landscape or portrait and I print, it changes before my eyes to a letter size, portrait and prints. I am printing to a HP8550N. It happens whether it is a new doent or an old one. After I re-adjust the settings again it doesn't seem to happen. It's kind of annoying and I'd love to resolve it....

    Cameron,

    You most likely opened the file by double-clicking on it. Try open the file from the File menu in AI.

    You're sure that you Opened the file after starting AI and then used the Open command? I've never seen that happen.

    Larry,

    I tried opening from the file and still get the same problem with printing. I have a G-4, using AI 10 and have an epson Stylus 880. It was working just fine, then this started and I can not get it to print to full size on Legal it changes to Letter no matter what.

    Can you help?

    Trash AI preferences? If you had it working before, that's the first thing to do if something isn't working the way it was.

    Hi Gang,
    Hereís a strange one. Has anybody tried setting their page set up to print at 55%, 56%,57% or 58% ?. The page margin and size is doing some wacky stuff. 54% and 59% seem fine. Hmmmm
