What is your printer, and what is your paper's custom size compared to it's regular document feed? And have you tried outputting from InDesign as a PDF and tried to print the PDF from Adobe Acrobat?

 

It could be that InDesign is saying "Yes, Yes, Yes" but your printer is playing Amy Winehouse's "No. No. No."

 

Jus' sayin'

If your image is offset when you're printing, you may want to check out the Setup section of your Print dialog box and fine-tune it a bit like the example below:

 

1.jpg

 

You can choose from various positions in the Page Position: options box to move your page around on the sheet it will eventually print on. Also, if you print on a larger sheet you can use the Marks and Bleed options to, say, specify your 6.5"x10" page with crops in the middle of a regular 8 1/2"x11" sheet and trim your output to size.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Randy

If you export a PDF and print from Acrobat (which BTW, is the method I would recommend) is the output correct?

Is your HP driver software up-to-date?

 

Can you show a capture of your InDesign Print Setup tab? See Randy’s 2nd post.
