Do you have this problem with all pages, or only some?

Is this a Windows thing, or, is it a vendor provided feature?

I assume that at some level Microsoft supports this because I found one 
place where they claim that some web pages will not shrink to fit if a 
page specifies "exactly where text should print". In other words, if I 
say "Print this one inch from the top and three inches from the left", 
it will not properly shrink. I found this on a windows 7 FAQ, so, no 
idea if it is related or not.

A few disclaimers: I rarely ever use Windows 8, so I have little 
familiarity with it. I do own a Windows 8.1 machine, but I rarely ever 
use it.

That said, What happens if you export the document to PDF and then try 
to print the PDF with shrink to fit? This may provide a work-around, 
and, if it still fails to print, you can suspect that something else may 
be happening.

I’ve set my printer settings to ‘fit the page’ the printed document is missing some
