Fit to one page
I compared the outputs from the printer, one sent thru word and the other thru Adobe pdf document. I got some more information on the print mismatch: It appears adobe for some reason adjusting the margins of a document.

I am trying to print Booklet format in adobe so I have no control whatsoever over the scaling or margins in abode. There should be a way to control margins adobe sending to the printer.
