Print Scaling Inconsistent

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

I have 2 separate reports.

The first report is 44 rows in length.  From smartsheets, when I print the report and use the Fit to Width function, the report is 1 page wide by 1 page long.  This report has 16 detail columns. 

The second report is 37 rows in length.  When I print and use the Fit to Width function, the report is 1 page wide by 2 pages long.  This report has 2 columns (and much narrower than report 1).  


I have confirmed all print settings are identical between reports.  Further, I have attempted recreating Report 2 but the results are the same. I have also attempted to delete all unused rows from the bottom of the sheet that feeds Report 2.


The only way I have found to reduce Report #2 to 1 page wide by 1 page long is to delete 1 row from the report.  

Does anyone have any thoughts on why this would occur? 

I have added screenshots as examples.

    It sounds like it could be the number of columns.


    When you fit to width, the 16 columns will shrink everything down to the same scale as required to fit the columns on 1 sheet. This means the text is smaller which means the rows probably aren't as tall as in the report containing only 2 columns.
