Details : BCC 4.5.6 (433) printing on an Avery 8371 inkjet layout with a Canon IP4300 printer from my MacBook Pro (Unibody) under Mac OS X 10.6.1

I tried to fine tune the printer with the Calibrate Printer tool but it looks that it has no effect. Positive and negative scale, V Offset or H Offset doesn't change anything, print still at the same place on the paper.

Printing option is not rasterize and preset is left to "Standard".

This is mysterious and it might need some voodoo or something to make it work :/

What do you suggest?

Did you print the document itself or the calibration sheet? The second doesn't change when you adjust the calibration values. Also, print the document at the same conditions as the calibration sheet (same paper, print quality, etc.).
