In Publisher 2003 when you preview a large banner or a poster sized publication by using the Print Preview feature, graphics on the page appear to be cutoff and cropped. Additionally, the page may appear as a single 8.5 inch by 11 inch sheet in the preview.


This problem occurs only in Print Preview because of interactions between Publisher 2003 and the large format printer driver that was used to define the page size. This does not affect the way that the publication prints from the large format printer. The publication will print as expected.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
