Bug Description

Binary package hint: evince

The pdf files generated by Dr. Tax have margin defined. SInce the printer cannot print the last 1/4 inch, the printout is truncated and the tax people may not be happy.

I suspect this may be a Ufile problem. But shouldn't we be able to shrink the image a little bit? We can shrink it for the screen.. Why not for the printer?

This is already possible in evince/gtk print dialog with the scale option under Page Setup (see screenshot)
