From what I've read snipingtool.exe seems to have a knack of going missing and there are many failed attempts on sorting it out. If you know anyone with Windows 7 it might just copy across to the location given and work.

Might be easier to use a freebie program such as MWSnap:

It's old but good. You can snap to any size, or complete Windows, etc.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

When you have the original PDF open, try clicking on FILE in the upper left corner of your screen. You should see something like "fit to printer margins" Be sure the paper size and orientation are set correctly in that same screen. File should fill the paper.

If the text is readable in the original file then it should be readable in the printed format.

What program are you using to view the original file? You should be able to zoom in to any power you wish. If zooming in and the text is still not readable then you have a PDF that was created wrong. Most likely scanned askew or something.

I am missing something. When you zoom is the document then legible?

When you set the printer to fill the page what is the issue then? Is the text too small or something else?

Windows 7 has something called a snipping tool. You may be able to use it to capture the image and paste to Word. You can then click on it to resize and then print.

If you can't find the snipping tool in programs then type snipping tool in the search box.

Maybe you've just lost the shortcut to Snipping tool.

Follow this path:
"Start Orb > Computer > C drive > Windows > System32"
Look for the file SnippingTool.exe and if you find it make a desktop shortcut to it.
