No Letter size PDF printing option in Mint 19 Cinnamon-64

Post by SunWorks » Tue Sep 04, 2018 6:13 pm

Hello,
When trying to print to PDF, there is no "US Letter" size option.

There is:
US Legal
11x14
A4
and many others, but where has the "US Letter" size option gone for 8 1/2" x 11" paper?

Thank you,
Clinton

What application are you trying to print to pdf from? does it not give you an option to just print to custom dimensions?

Ah, hah...
It's an application issue, not a Mint issue.
The Firefox version of the exact same printout gives a US Letter option, while the Google Chrome version does not.

Any ideas why Chrome isn't showing a letter option???

Thank you,
Clinton

I'm not sure I'm afraid :?

Both printing to PDF in Chrome with the built in option or using the system dialog gives me the option to print to US Letter standard...

thank you for the reply.
I'm getting that in Firefox, but not in Chrome.
I get the letter option in LibreOffice, etc...

so I need to look Chrome's direction see if there are answers.

Thx!
