Give these fixes a shot:

Look at Print Settings: Open the print dialog box. Make sure the scale sits at 100%. Double-check the paper size matches A4.

Get Fresh Printer Drivers: Head to Canon's website. Download the newest drivers for your printer. New drivers often fix weird issues.

Start Over with Printing: Click System Preferences on your Mac. Find Printers & Scanners. Right-click (or Control-click) the printer list. Pick "Reset printing system." Add your printer again.

Tweak PDF Settings: Open your PDF in Preview. Hit File then Print. Take a peek at scale settings and paper size.

Adjust Google Docs: In Google Docs, match document settings to print settings. Click File then Page setup. Make sure paper size and margins line up.

Thanks very much. I've tried all that and still have the problem. Cheers



I solved the problem by buying an HP printer which works fine.
