With four 100page booklets successfully completed with EXACTLY the same Parent Pages Specifications - book no 5, with same Parent Pages Specifications, refuses to print with the correct margins.
The top and bottom margins should be 22mm each but when printed they are 30mm and 15mm
I changed the margin for one page by lifting the text up 5mm but this made no difference when printed
I can transfer one page from book No 5 into any of the other books and it prints OK with the correct margins
I have cancelled out Parent A and then specified Parent B with the margin specification but without success
Books 1 to 4 print perfectly so the problem is NOT the printer.
Am completely baffled and any assistance would be appreciated
So the files looks EXACTLY the same in InDesign but print differently?
Are you printing directly from InDesign or are you creating PDF first - by exporting or by printing to "PDF printer"?
Printing direct from ndesign
If a document is not behaving well then try
Open the IDML in InDesign
Save the file as a new InDesign file with a new name
See if the issue persists.
Mt apologies ffor my ignorance but what is the IDML
Idml is InDesign mark up language. Basically it exports to a xml format. When you reopen open the idml it rebuilds the InDesign file.
It's a very standard way of removing minor corruption within a file and should be safe. As always backup and test but in my very long time using idml I have never had an issue.
It's very common step when files misbehave.

Double check that you've selected the correct paper size for the printer you are usingin the Page Setup, as well as the correct orientation/position in the Print >Setup panel.
