I just thought that I would mention that I had problems with Acrobat not
printing PDFs in the size that I expected, until I discovered (and turned
off) the fit to page option.

Which renderer are you using
i.e., in your command line are you using
-awt, -pdf, -print ?

I just ran a quick test on 0.20.1 on a test case
that renders several 6 inch-wide tables on a
single page. In cases, the source is xml,
transformed via xslt within fop.

The results (apologies to all you metric folks)

bot fop -awt (and pressing using the print button)
and fop -print both yield a page with all the tables
exactly 6 inches wide.

running -pdf and printing the resulting pdf file
via Acrobat 4.0, the tables are all 5 5/8 inches.
These results pretty much agree w/ Steve's results.

These results on WinNT.

(I regret to say we noticed this a month ago, but since
it didn't affect our needs, we didn't report it.  tsk tsk)
