One of the most important stages of the Electronic Vehicle Health Check is the Customer Report. We pride ourselves on the easy to read, customer friendly layout of this document. However, due to the many printers available to our clients, there are occasions when, once printed, the report appears to have images or text cropped from the edge of the page.
How do I stop the edges of the report being cropped when printed?
The Customer Report is produced as an an Adobe PDF. As a result there are settings you can apply when printing which will quickly solve the problem.
