strange - I don't seem to have these printing problems. I print on
linux/windows on various paper sizes.
What Windows version are you using? I tested on Win2000 and WinXP. I never
had your problems and it seems like Marco cannot reproduce either. I
assume he is on XP.
Are you sure you set the page format correctly everywhere? Note that under
Windows you have to set it at various/multiple places:
* in qgis (print composer, "General" Tab --> paper size)
* in the printing dialogue of Windows/QT
* in the preferences of your printer (if the two dialogues don't
Usually those dialogues know nothing about each other, thus you have to
set it multiple times.
The other question is: can other people reproduce the strange behavior
that happens on Florians PC?
