Printing Help: Some printers do not automatically scale the document and will cut off the bottom of the document’s pages. In this case, you may need to change the Page Scaling setting in your Print window to “Shrink to Printable Area.” There are signatures required on pages 2, 3, and 4. If you do not have signature blocks on those pages, you are not printing the entire document.
