I just printed 3 sheets from VP a little while ago to an HP all-in-one inkjet and it printed great. I'll side with David on this one as I know in the past if I've used drivers that actually "came" with windows I've had a few things like "online maps" from like Mapquest or whereever to print all freaky like you're talking about. After downloading the actual software package from HP fixed my printing problems tho so might try that. Sounds stupid but I was trying to print to an HP Color LaserJet 2600n that I got free of charge from work (just had to take the thing apart to clean the lenses of dust...they thought it was dead because of the odd change in color which is a common problem with that model) and wala....good as new printer and prints great (as long as you buy refill toner that is...new set of toners cost as much as the stupid printer or more from HP LOL)

Hmm, I have the settings correct, prints everything else I want to print correctly when I choose landscape. No biggie I suppose. I'll muck about a bit and see what happens..
Thanks for the responses!

I've printed in landscape without issue, but I always check the settings of the printer before sending it. Sometimes the settings get buggered, so I make sure the whole page gets used. Maybe your printer settings are out of whack.

I frequently print with VP and almost always in the landscape mode and I’ve never had an issue with it not printing correctly and I have my laptop connected to a number of printers, some of which are connected via USB and my duplexing unit is connected via Wifi and they all print fine. I do have a couple of questions.

1. Does everything look fine in the printer preview?

2. Are you printing to a laser printer or an ink jet? Because if you’re printing to a laser printer you might be having a memory issue.

3. Do you have more than one printer you can try printing to? Because sometimes my HP Color Laser gets upset for some reason and doesn't want to print some pages with some software. The odd thing is that is I take the same page and print it to Adobe I can then print it fine to it! But I haven't seen this problem with it and VP.

I have printed a few maps with VP, but always in portrait, I tried the
other day to print one in landscape and it only printed like a quarter of the image/map. Anyone else print maps with VP and had this happen?
