CPI from market force now takes three pages to print

I have no idea what is going on. When I print out the CPI from Market Force it now takes three pages to print with the last page showing blank. the first page doesn't start printing until the middle of the page. I have adjusted the display down to 67% but it still shows the same. Any ideas PM me please.

Why are you printing the CPI? I’ve shopped MF for years and never printed one. If you really want to keep it, capture a screen image of it.
I highlight and save the report online. I never print. That would be too many pages and $$$ with ink.
I never print anything, I have a notebook that I use. I take notes and highlight what's really important so I don't forget. It's the last thing I look at before I head into a shop.
Yes, I've noticed the same thing. It's very annoying. I always have a printed data sheet for shops. On the front there's a copy and paste of the store name/time/place/fee from the acceptance mail or company website. (On the back I have my interpretation of the questions so I can write my information on after the fact, then attach documentation to before filing). In the past I used the CPI for Marketforce shops. No more.

I save all my CPIs to my computer by "printing" to my XPS writer, not my hard-copy printer. But I don't print them out. However, If you want a hard copy, you can open the XPS document, highlight the copy you want to print, paste it into a new Word document, and print a single page. I just tried it, and it works great. It's fast, and you won't waste paper or have two pages in hand when you only need one.

It is a function of the browser more than anything from my experience. I have Chrome and Microsoft Edge. The Chrome provides a more compact view. The middle of the page start I have seen with the other since we bought a new computer and go Windows 10. I print as little as possible. But if you do want to print, try a different browser. If you use Chrome, you can also shrink down to a specific percentage; my Windows only allows stepped tiers of shrinkage, like 75%, etc. Then you can easily opt for printing two pages on one sheet, and really scale down printing costs further.
I shrink it to 50% and only print the first page.

I always print the CPI to PDF, so I can have a record of it. When reporting, all you have to do is type your name on it online, and submit, so printing it out is no longer necessary.
What benefit do you get from printing hard copies of guidelines? I never print them. That solves the issue.

If you absolutely need to print, print to a PDF file first. That way, you can check how the print out will look if you actually printed it on paper.
