# Margins and text size change when printing from external viewer (using Texmaker 3.1)

With Texmaker 3.1 on Win XP Pro SP2, the following MWE prints with different margin widths and font size according to whether, from the window which opens after I press F1, I use the print command directly or I click to open open my external viewer (Adobe Reader) and then print from that. I'm aiming for 1 inch margins and 10-point type.

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}
\usepackage[top=1in, bottom=1in, left=1in, right=1in]{geometry}
\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage{textcomp}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{amsthm}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{url}
\usepackage{enumerate}
\lstset{breaklines=true,numbers=left,numberstyle=\tiny,upquote=true,basicstyle=\fontsize{9pt}{6pt}\ttfamily}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{epstopdf}
\usepackage{sidecap}
\usepackage{sectsty}
\partfont{\centering}
\DeclareMathSizes{12}{12}{8}{9}

Printing directly gives the required margins and type size. Firing up Adobe Reader first gives L,R margins of 1.34in and 1.02in respecively, and type size that's clearly smaller than 10pt: the number of characters per line and the layout are the same; it's as if the whole page has been reduced.

As someonr implied, this is not a minimal working example. You could probably get rid of all packages except geometry to reproduce this behavior. Have a look at meta.tex.stackexchange.com/questions/228/…. – doncherry Jan 7 '12 at 1:13
Thanks for this. I'll post proper MWEs from now on! :) – Harry Macpherson Jan 7 '12 at 1:52
