Besides driver's settings keep in mind that you're printing from a PC

So here's how I finally got it to work (I know it wasn't how I did it 8
months ago). It's kludgy, but it got the thing to line up properly.
First: I measured everything very carefully: turns out my guess that it
was 5% too big was close: it was 4% too big.
So I scaled it to 96%, and printed it to a PDF. Then I printed the PDF
to InfoPrint (full color, default dither, LZW compression), to generate
That gave me something that was exactly the right size, but still
aligned wrong, and in a way that setting the unprintable areas in
InfoPrint didn't help.
So then, I did some shifting of margins in the original Open Office
document, until everything lined up correctly.
Then, going back into the original document one last time, I ADDED A
