I'm running Mac OS 10.15. I have Adobe Reader. I'm trying to print large PDF documents with mixed paper sizes (letter/legal). I have it working properly but its printing some legal pages without the full text.

In other words, if there are 5 legal pages within a large PDF, it is printing page 1 of 5 correctly and pages 2-5 are printing with the text 3" down from the top of the paper. The letter pages are printing just fine.
Any suggestions would be helpful as I print hundreds of these docs every week.

So this isn't really an answer to your question but I was wondering myself, I currently have the Acrobat DC Standard version and pay $12.99 per month to be able to print mixed size pages from my HP laptop. But I called Adobe to ask if the FREE version of Adobe, "Adobe Reader" will allow you to print according to PDF size so i can stop paying for my subscription which is all I really use Adobe for. But they told me the free version does not allow printing. So based on what I have read in the comments here, You are using the free version, so does it allow printing and you can still select the box, Print according to PDF size?

Oh nice, thank you for replying, just to clarify, it does allow you to print and select that little box print according to pdf size? Can you also compress a file using the free version?

Yes. I use Reader multiple times a day to print PDF files with Ltr/Lgl paper. It prints perfectly pulling paper from each tray based on the PDF file. Check the box to print according to PDF size.

I don't know about compressing files in this application. 
ps. Adobe does not offer support for Reader. 

Hope this helps!
