    CIP is brilliant. Remember you have the Manual installed on your computer.If you click on Help, you can find a lot to help you.To print a file to a pdf printer, you do the following:
    You have your document open in CIP.


    When you are ready to print it to your pdf printer, you
    click on File, then Document setup.


    When the little window called Document setup opens, you
    click on Set paper shape.


    This will open your Print setup window.


    You find and select your Cute PDF Writer in the Printer
    choice box (or whatever your printer that makes PDFs is called) and Letter will
    appear in the Size choice box. Find and select A4 and OK. At this point you will see that the CIP page
    has the red outline moved right to the edge.


    Now you are ready to print it so do Ctrl+P or click the
    printer icon.


    Whether it is a book or sheets, I always print PDF as sheets
    Single Sided. (You can fuss with how to print out the PDF file later...)


    If you don't go through this rigmarole, you may find the
    pages do not print neatly on the page and anything you want back to back (such
    as game cards) will not be properly aligned.


    I have been using CIP since it was first published so PM me any problems and I will do my best to help. But if it's technical to do with your computer, or you have the program networked, I will not be the person to ask and you would be better emailing Widgit Support for assistance!
