I cannot print the following website(s) properly.
Is this a problem with dopdf ?
tales-of-pirates-gold.com/viewthread.php?tid=139&extra=page%3D1
some gfx, pages dont show or images cut off edge. how to know the correct page margins ?
some guides are on more that one page, so i have to join 2 or more pdfs to make 1.
This link has scroll data, but the data in the scroller does not get printed.

I'm not sure what browser you're using, but I'd guess it might be Firefox. I love Firefox, but it does have problems with printing pages like this.
I just tried Firefox on the first link, and did a print preview. I could see the same problems that you described without printing. It's not a problem with doPDF.
I then switched over to Internet Explorer. Print preview shows the complete page if I switch over to Landscape (instead of Portrait) page format. Also, sometimes I'll change the "Shrink To Fit" option to something like 70% to catch all of the graphics that sometimes gets cut off.
I tried the second link, and I was able to successfully view and print the page (63 pages using Firefox 3.0.7 and doPDF 6.2 Build 293 ... 49 pages with Internet Explorer). I didn't get any errors.

Melvin is right, this isn't a problem with dopdf, in this case is firefox so better use IE for this one.

thank you so much guys.
I guess I have to get used to using 2 browsers and print/preview in landscape mode.
