Issue 147349: Print preview moved: Printer (Office jet 4500) moves head and footer line!

Reported by, Sep 7 2012

Issue description

Chrome Version       : <Copy from: 'about:version'>
URLs (if applicable) :
Other browsers tested:
Add OK or FAIL after other browsers where you have tested this issue:
Safari 5:
  Firefox 4.x: OK
       IE 7/8/9: OK

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. printing any web page with Google Chrome
2. The choice letting "head and footer lines" in the standard setting
3. The result: Whenever I print, the header line and the footer line is at the expression too far above; it, means at the header line is only approx. more 0. 5 cm of distance lasting at the footer line's almost 2 cm (!!!) are! 
I have tried it, and also with a PDF printer: The problem doesn't appear there!

What is the expected result?
The footer line moves none face-up (like it also was in earlier Chrome versions); expression is normal printed also correctly at normal print alignments like it in the Internet Explorer.

What happens instead?
Whenever I print, the header line and the footer line is at the expression too far above; it, means at the header line is only approx. more 0. 5 cm of distance lasting at the footer line's almost 2 cm (!!!) are! 
I have tried it, and also with a PDF printer: The problem doesn't appear there! 

The problem doesn't appear even with the Internet Explorer (*laugh*)! one must one leave IE (this he has at least a SENSIBLE print preview !!!) 

Printer: Officejet 4500 G510g-m with the most current driver from the HP-Page.

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if
I have one scanned the expression!

Thank you for help!!!

I am not sure that I understand issue. So preview is OK, but printed result is not? Can take a picture or scan result?

Also we fixed some issues in related code recently, but it's not in stable version. Can you try to reproduce with ?

yes, it´s right, the print preview show it right, but the result isn´t so. I have phoned Hewlett Packard, they say, it´s an Problem with the Chrome Browser! I can confirming this, because the results with the printer in Word and Internet Explorer are right!!!
So there must be a bug in Google Chrome!!!!!
It is no matter which web page I print, the footer line is always moved. I also can print these only with the standard setting of the head and footer line, I choose "minimum" or not the slightest head and footer line "user-definedly" is printed...?!?

PS: I have also attach the file with is wrong printed. When you need more, I can attach a new file, too.

I hope you can help me! (sorry for my English, I´m from Germany)

If I correctly understand issue it's fixed but not yet in Chrome Stable.
You can try Canary Build from here

Konrad.Loos@, Could you please update us as per comment#6?


Comment 8 by, Oct 20 2012

no, my problem is not still fixed. In the opposite even, it became even worse!

Not only, the problem still exists but together-squashed over 60 signs of barely 2 cm the entire head and footer since version 22 as well! This means at least that the writing-size must be in 5pt or at most 6pt. No people can read this more!!!

I more and more frequently now use Internet Explorer. If not even reason-functions, which IE has worked right for over 10 years, work right with Google!) if this is more like paltry. If nothing is altered with chrome 23, I will deinstall Chrome and use the Internet Explorer with a little pride and contentment again! :-)

Konrad.Loos@ What exactly build have you tried?

Comment 10 by, Nov 18 2012

It was Chrome 22 at that time. 
The Chrome developers are before ready, that the head and footer line at her right position are again, but . . . sometimes now the signs have slipped totally in the header line (title) and about each other lobately. !!! 
Now you can't any word in the headline!!!

Please fix this problem, that I can print "normally" for the first time with Google Chrome!!!

Perhaps get it the developers after over 10 tests then once to . . .

Comment 11 by, Nov 18 2012

In my attach you can see the next problem with the print preview...!!!
Please fix it finally with Chrome 23 (Update) or at the latest with Chrome 24!!!!!

Can we finally hope now that the print preview bugs are eliminated with Chrome 24? 
Or must we wait one more year???

Comment 14 by, Dec 17 2012

Did you try canary from comment 12?

Comment 15 by, Dec 17 2012

Yes, in the canary build it will be ok - but not in the final version, and thats the most important version for using in everyday life!!

Comment 16 by, Dec 18 2012

Then 24 also will work for you.

Comment 17 by, Dec 18 2012
