Can Powerpoint print to 11x17 pages?

I have it set up so that on screen the ruler shows 11x17 but when I print

the slide, it only prints approximately 9.5 x 12 of the document on the 11x17

page.

Also (for this document):

The text is also off center in the part that does print

and when I preview the image is only 8.5x11 (not 11x17) and it shows the

partial text that shows up on the printout.

    • When you go to File/Print, do you choose the option to "scale to fit paper"?

      Sounds like you ARE choosing scale to print (per Echo's question) but that your

      printer is not physically capable of printing to the edge of the tabloid size

      page. Or at least the current printer driver settings don't allow it.

      What kind of printer is it? What's the maxiumum printable area on 11x17 paper

      (tabloid)? That should be in the documentation or spec sheet on the

      manufacturer's web site.

      This explains in more detail:

      Margins are wrong, printout is off-center, I don't want any margins
