    Check that you have the page setup set to A4. Letter is shorter and if set as the default this could explain the loss of text on the document.


    Also, it is up to Samsung to provide drivers for Lion - Apple does not make printer drivers. They simply provide a repository for common printers for helping users install a driver on Lion.

    I think it's absurd that a company like Apple cuts even driver compatibility. In the past there has always been super compatible.

    I find it absurd and almost shocking, that to install a driver, you must use a workaroundusing linux drivers. I remain perplexed .......

    I had already set the page A4 in the printer settings.

    Thanks anyway for the note!

    Apple don't write the drivers for printers, the manufacturer (Samsung in your case) does, complain to them.
