How does the page look when viewed in Print View. Click on the View icon in the upper left of the toolbar and choose Print View to see it. Is the chart fully on the page? Look at it in Layout view also. Is it at or near the margins? Did you increase the margins, possibly setting them outside the printable area of your printer?
What happens if you Print but choose "Open PDF in Preview" in the print dialog instead of printing to your printer?

It may be a good idea to read :

Yeah, same problem happens even in the print preview window. But even when I choose "Open PDF in Preview" it still occurs. I have found a couple of other people having the same problem, no thanks to the HORRIBLE search feature on Apple's support site (this is unacceptable, Apple), and they have no answers. I saw this posted in response to one of the posts, but it says that the problem would only affect 3rd party PDF viewers, and this is obviously not just a PDF issue if it's also printing out like this.

Hi Yvan, thanks for your reply, you are the master here! I did see your response regarding that and the link to Apple's explanation of the problem already. However, this is happening with Preview and when I print.

Just to clarify, I asked if it happened in Print View and you responded that it happens in the print preview window. These are not the same thing. Does it happen in Print View?

No, it does not appear in Print View. That's why it's so mind boggling.

Hmm. The only thing I have personally seen is that if I place a shadowed chart next to a margin it may cut off part of the shadow. I've never seen it cut off part of the actual chart, though. And the problem is clearly visible in Print View.
Do you use Adobe Acrobat Reader as the default reader for PDFs or do you use Preview?
What happens if you Export to PDF instead of doing it via Print? Try Sheet View and also try Page View.
Do you have another printer to try out, a totally different model that would use different drivers?
I don't have an answer for you, I am simply trying to put some bounds on the problem in hopes that it narrows it down enough to pinpoint it.

Yeah, it's really strange. And when I email the file to my buddy, he gets the same thing.
I use Preview, not Adobe Reader (I kinda hate Adobe these days).
And yes, it still happens when exported to PDF, that's actually how I initially noticed it.
I don't have another printer to try. I was wondering about that.. would it be the printer's fault? I'm just exporting to PDF's which seems like it wouldn't involve the printer, but I could be wrong.
Thanks for bouncing ideas off me, though! I really appreciate you taking the time to discuss this with me!

If it happens on export to PDF, I doubt the printer is involved. It may be when going through the Print dialog. I just tried it with three different printers and could not replicate the problem.
Does it do this with other Numbers documents? What if you create a new document with the same kind of chart? Same problem?

I just tried creating a brand new spreadsheet with a pie chart and it had the issue. I have tried replicating it in Pages, but it works just fine in Pages. Btw, I really appreciate you trying it on multiple printers! Thank you for going out of the way to test it out.

If I remove "Show Title" from the the chart, my charts are no longer cut off. I have to use a text box to replace the title.

I ran into the same problem when I upgraded from Numbers '08 to Numbers '09. I entered the following bug report through Apple's product feedback web page:
Numbers '09 clips the right edge of 2D pie charts in printed and PDF output when a chart has a group shadow and a title. For example, the clipping occurs in:
o printing to a printer
o the preview portion of the Print dialog
o the "Open PDF in Preview" option of the Print dialog
o exporting to a PDF file
The clipping does not occur in Print View. Also, it does not occur in Numbers '08, even when you run it alongside Numbers '09 on the same Mac.
To workaround the problem, remove the group shadow or the title from the pie chart.Numbers '09, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
