  1. I too had the same problem. Google Map looks fine on screen but when I print, the “Save Trees. Go Green!” ad is huge. The important information – the directions – are probably 6 pt. font. Like THAT is going to help me get where I’m going!!

    I’m using XP Pro and printed it thru Windows 8 and Google Chrome. Same problem. Adjusted compatability view in Windows – no luck.

    I finally resolved my problem by using MapQuest!

  2. I had the same problem..just go to File>Page Setup> uncheck “Shrink to Fit” and it should print out fine. I couldn’t find “Format” as an option with Windows XP.
