Occasionally, you may have a need to print a legal sized report or form to letter paper. In order to do that, you must first print your legal sized report to PDF, then use Adobe Reader to scale the pages down to letter. Here's how:

  1. With your report open, click File then click Print to PDF.

  2. In the Create PDF window, mark the pages you want to print to letter size, then click OK. After clicking OK, choose an easy-to-find location to save the PDF to, such as your Windows Desktop.
  3. Now, locate the PDF and open it in Adobe Reader. Once it is open, click File, then choose Print.

  4. Now, Adobe Reader's Print Options window opens. Under the Size Options heading, choose Fit then verify that the page size says 8.5 x 11 inches.

    You may also need to uncheck Choose paper source by PDF page size if your printer has both Letter and Legal sized paper available.
  5. Finally, click Print.

That's it!  After clicking Print in Adobe Reader, your report is now being printed to letter size paper.
