Hi folks.  I don't know if I am in the right forum, but here goes:


I have a MacBook Pro mid-2009 that is running Snow Leopard.  Since I bought the laptop, I have been unable to correctly print pdf files using Adobe Reader.  The document prints out centered on the page but is only roughly 3 1/4" x 5 1/4" instead of the 8x11 it is supposed to be.  The document properties show up as letter sized, I have the Adobe print settings as "Actual size".  The printer is set to 8 x 11 as well.


The problem is only on pdfs on this computer.  Pages documents, websites, etc. all print correctly. I have the same problem on different brand printers.  My other Macs will all print the pdf's correctly, so I know it isn't a printer problem.


The pdf's print correctly if I use Preview, so that makes me think it is an Adobe Reader problem.  I have deleted my Reader and reinstalled but have the same problem.


Does anyone have any ideas?  This is my laptop for work (as opposed to my old net-surfing model), so I really do need to be able to print pdf's.  I have always gotten frustrated trying to troubleshoot this myself and given up and used another computer up to this point, but it is getting to be a nuisance.


Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
