When I try to print my pdf file (size 8.5x22) onto the page size that i have created (10x24), as soon as I select "Actual Size", the document moves to the upper left of the page, clipping the document at the top and left hand side.  How do I print actual size, while centering the document on the page?

Do you have "Portrait" or "Landscape" specified?  Using either of those in the files I tested moves the "Actual Size" to the upper-left corner, whereas selecting "Auto Portrait/Landscape" centers it.  I can't find an option elsewhere to do it (it feels like it should exist).

Thank you so much! I wish I had known this sooner. But seriously Adobe, How hard would it be to allow us to drag that box to our desired print area?!

Does this change the scale at all? I have to print to exact scales but want my document to create the PDF on ANSI Drint full size to my plotter on ARCH D which is 24"x36" but still to scale.

I struggled with this problem also.  If is a docx file that you are saving as a pdf, instead of selecting "save as pdf" select "other formats" then select pdf in the "save as type" box and click save.  It will then be saved in the correct format.  Not sure why this worked but it worked for me.  Hope this helps someone else out there

Using "Poster" with Tile Scale at 100% works for me.
