Why is my Layout shifted when using raster printing?

Summary: Raster printing for some printers may be shifted out of position
Note: This only affects Rhino for Mac Layout printing

Some users will find that prints and PDFs created when printing from Layouts may be shifted out of place on the page. Several things can effect this:

  • Shifting only occurs when using the raster option. Vector prints are not shifted
  • Shifting can be avoided by selecting a “borderless” paper size
  • Shifting can be avoided by selecting a different current printer
  • Printing to PDF is also shifted when one of these printers is current unless a borderless paper size, or vector output is selected

This shifting issue has been seen when using some HP DeskJet and some Canon printer drivers.
