Graphics are cut off when printed

Again and again there is the problem that graphics or images are cut off during printing and only part of the graphic is visible.

This problem is independent of the graphics file type , the images are cut off with JPG , PNG, GIF or other graphics files .

It doesn’t seem to matter which programs you use to print out, we were able to re-do this in Outlook , Excel or Word .

We have shown you below a generated PDF file of a Word file, in which more than half of the graphic on the right side is also cut off .

The problem appears to be particularly common among users of HP printers and for many users it is sufficient to use a different printer driver for printing that is compatible with the installed HP printer driver.

If you removed the embedded graphic from the document and the graphic above




integrated into the document, the cropping of the images no longer occurs, as you can see below.
