Top Producer relies upon Adobe Acrobat to output printed materials such as letters, labels, and envelopes to a print device. As such, it is important to make sure that the Adobe print settings are properly configured for best results when printing from Top Producer. Issues that may arise from incorrect configuration include incorrect fonts and a variety of spacing and margin issues.

When you click the Print icon after viewing a print preview of a mailing activity (such as a letter, label, or envelope), you will be presented with print options similar to the examples below. The print options and correct settings will vary depending on the internet browser you are using. Click the appropriate link below for instructions that apply to your browser:

Google Chrome

chrome-print-settings

Ensure that the Fit to page checkbox is Unchecked.

Mozilla Firefox

Mozilla Firefox may by default be using the incorrect PDF plugin. If your document preview shows a toolbar similar to the below, follow these instructions:

  1. At the top of the browser, click the orange Firefox tab (or if available, click the Tools menu), and select Options.
  2. Click Applications.

  3. Locate the Portable Document Format (PDF) option in the list.
  4. Click the option in the Action column and change it to Use Adobe Acrobat (In Firefox).
  5. Save the changes and close the options window.
