Hi, I have a PowerPoint file that I need converted to PDF and the content shrunk slightly. Normally, I follow these steps:
1. Ctrl-P, select Adobe PDF, and click on Printer Properties.
2. Click on the Layout tab, then the Advanced... button.
3. Change the Scaling percentage to 95.
4. Click OK twice, then click on Print, name and save the file.
This normally works just fine, but for whatever reason, this one file will not scale; regardless of the scaling percentage entered in step 3 above, it renders at 100%. The PowerPoint file was produced on a Mac, and we're now working with it on a Windows machine.
Would appreciate any tips or solutions that anyone may be willing to share.
Thanks for the prompt response Amal. I followed your suggestion, and it works, but the new PDF renders the pages rotated--the original is landscape (since they're PowerPoint slides), and the non-scaled PDF is also landscape, but the final PDF--although properly scaled--has the pages rotated to portrait.
These are the steps I followed after creating the initial PDF:
1. Ctrl-P; printer set to Adobe PDF
2. Custom Scale: 95%
3. Orientation: Auto
Note that in step 3, if I change the orientation to Landscape, the new PDF is rendered upside down, and the content is not centered on the page.
