    Take the TDK datasheet for their C4532X5R1C226M230KA.
    It bloats the scree (easy fix, just "-" a few times).
    BUT it is too big to print on ONE sheet of paper.
    HOW can one get it to fit?

    Works just fine here. Want me to USPS you a copy?
  3. Make a screenshot (press "Print" key), start a picture viewer like
    Irfanview, klick "Edit" -> "Paste", then "File" -> "Print" -> mark
    "Best fit to page (aspect ratio)" -> "Print": Enjoy!

    Which one? Digikey has four alone, and there's probably more on their
    website. A direct link would tell us what you're talking about.

    I haven't had problems viewing their datasheets in Chrome's built-in PDF
    viewer, nor Foxit Reader (which is free, and less buggy and less evil than
    Adobe). I haven't tried printing, but I doubt "fit to page" won't do as
    it says.

    Select "fit to paper" at printing?
  6. The one here works...

    I would rather know how to fit things like this to a page.
    In other words, i have the fish; need the hook, line, and frying pan.

    * ---------^ does not work in Win2K
    * All i need is yet another program!
    Is there a way to tell GsView "fit to page"? Or tell it to reduce by X%?

    All i have is Adobe Reader 4.05 (too old to accept file), and GsView.
    Digikey seems to not have datasheets (at least for the TDK caps); try:

    Absolutely NO such thing in GsView!

  12. Seems to open fine in Acrobat 10 for me, and prints fine. Other than
    it being landscape, I don't see anything unusual about it.

    It was produced from Excel (why do Asians use Excel as page layout
    software?) in Adobe PDFMaker 11 (Japanese version), and should be
    compatible with anything after Acrobat 6.0 (PDF V1.5).

    Acrobat 6.0 was released more than a decade ago, and your 4.05 is
    probably late 20th century software. Acrobat 9 is probably the newest
    version that will play with Win2K.

    There certainly is in GSview 4.9.

    And every older version I've had.

    Screenshot of the dialog box posted to a.b.s.e.

    Alternatively, you can "print", to a file, using the pswrite device,
    which should give you a pdf 1.4 (Acrobat 5) file, then print from Acrobat.
    That actually puts a 1.4 wrapper around the later format. Useful for
    people who don't want to install the latest, bloated, Acrobat.

    Verified; ver 9.0 is newest.
    Screws up my Adobe 4.05 viewer/writer so i ripped it out.
    Using GsView 5.0 instead for viewer if the Acrobat reader barfs.

    Tried the pswrite; same problem.
    But.. here you mentioned a newer GsView version; will try that.

    OK; i have tried everything.
    One: I have GsView ver 5.0 and GhostScript ver 9.10; both the most
    recent versions (Win32-bit) i can find and they are written for each other.
    Two: That dialog box exists nowhere in GsView; there certainly is no
    "fit to page" function in GsView.
    Three: If i set GsView to Landscape mode first, then Convert with
    pdfwrite at 300DPI (not the default 600DPI that i had been using), then
    and only then do i get a document that shows everything (one page).

    So, i ask again, where, oh where did that come from?
