Good afternoon, and welcome back to JustAnswer.
I have just finished checking a solution on my own system to confirm that this operation can be done successfully.
Looking at the problem statement, the only issue I see that might cause a problem is if the document also fails to print to a physical printer with the same cutoff.
Does the document print correctly when sent to a real printer?
I need to send it by email. It is cutting off 1/3 of the page
I need to save it so the entire thing shows up
OK. Does the document print correctly when sent to a real printer? This is critical. If the document does not print correctly when sent to a real printer, then the issue is in Publisher and probably can not be solved. If the document prints successfully when sent to a real printer, then the issue is in the PDF conversion and that can be solved.
it's in the pdf conversion
That we can fix, then.
What software is being used to do the PDF conversion?
i'm in microsoft publisher and clicking on save as PDF
I recommend trying a different method, which is the one I use to convert to PDF. Will a workaround be acceptable if there is no cost involved?
OK. What I just tested is sending the document from Microsoft Word to the Bullzip PDF converter. The Bullzip converter plugs into Windows as though it were a printer. When ready to produce a PDF, you select the Bullzip printer from the available printer list and it does the conversion.
One moment while I get a link to the Bullzip download page.
ok, do you have a link to the bullzip?
Sure do. One moment --
This is a "sponsored download" so don't let the installer install any of the toolbars, add-ons, etc. that it will try to install along with Bullzip.
Would you like me to hold while you download and test this solution?
No problem. Let me know when it's installed and if there are any difficulties I'll be glad to help.
the program that it has me downloading is called Soda PDF. Is that correct?
One moment. They may have changed the name on it.
The file being downloaded should be named Setup_BullzipPDFPrinter followed by the version number. Is that what downloaded?
nope. soda pdf
anyways, it is downloaded
Your browser is diverting you to somewhere else. I recommend that you sweep the system for viruses and malware.
One moment while I change the link with a shortener.
ok, can you transfer to someone who knows how to do this thru publisher?
Not directly, but I can release your question back to the available list. Shall I do that?
Sure thing. I wish you a successful conclusion to this problem. If it should develop that you don't have an answer in a reasonable time, let me know and I'll be glad to continue from where we are now.
Releasing your question ...
