Hi Sri,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Please try by specifying the DefaultPageSetting for the GridPrintDocument which does not have any issue in assigning the margins.

Please refer the code below which has been modified from our sample of scale to fit sample in print package of Grid.Windows:
private void button1_Click_1(object sender, EventArgs e)
this.gridControl1.Model.Properties.PrintFrame = false;
Syncfusion.GridHelperClasses.GridPrintDocumentAdv pd = new Syncfusion.GridHelperClasses.GridPrintDocumentAdv(this.gridControl1);
pd.DefaultPageSettings.Margins = new System.Drawing.Printing.Margins(25, 25, 25, 25);
if (this.ShowHeaderFooter.Checked)
pd.HeaderHeight = 70;
pd.FooterHeight = 50;
pd.HeaderHeight = 0;
pd.HeaderHeight = 0;
pd.DefaultPageSettings.Margins.Bottom = 5;
pd.DefaultPageSettings.Margins.Left = 5;
pd.DefaultPageSettings.Margins.Right = 5;
pd.DefaultPageSettings.Margins.Top = 5;

pd.ScaleColumnsToFitPage = this.ScaleColumnsToFit.Checked;
PrintPreviewDialog previewDialog = new PrintPreviewDialog();
previewDialog.Document = pd;
catch(Exception ex)
MessageBox.Show("Error while print preview" + ex.ToString());

Let me know if you have any concern.

Hi Sri,

I tried with the sample you provided and unable to see the issue in printing, could you please check with the printer settings that has been provided in your hardware panel? There is no relevant to the grid that conflicts between the print preview and the printer. Also try by checking in the different printers and on different machines if possible to narrow down the issue on the exact specification on the configuration.

Let me know if you have any concern.
