Enabling Shrink to Fit for Internet Explorer


Printing on Internet Explorer on printers does not enable the text to be magnified


The customer found that by disabling the "Shrink to Fit" option from File -> Page Setup, the text was able to be printed in a bigger font. This is browser setting, so ePublisher has no way of controlling this, but you can change registry settings to automatically have this unchecked. PROCEED WITH CAUTION

  1. Close Internet Explorer
  2. Go to regedit in the Windows system. Refer to Microsoft for more information on how to do this
  3. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER, Software, Microsoft, Internet Explorer, PageSetup

  4. Double click on Shrink_to_Fit to change the value to no
  5. Re-open Internet Explorer, to File -> Page Setup to verify that this button is unchecked.

If you are having difficulties with this please refer to http://support.microsoft.com/
