1" grid printing problem

Hi all.

Has anyone else had a problem with 1" grid printing not printing 1" grids? If I set the map size so it fits on a single 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper (for example, 40 feet wide and 52.5 feet high map, with a square grid set for 5 foot by 5 foot squares) then the map prints with actual 1" squares. If, however, I set the map size larger so that it would span multiple sheets of paper, the map prints out with 15/16th inch squares. I know that doesn't seem like much, but when printing to use with miniatures for a Dungeons & Dragons game, that missing 1/16th of an inch makes a difference.

I'm printing on an HP Officejet 6500 Wireless printer.

As a side note, when I set the grid height and width to 5 feet each FM8 changes them to 4.999995 feet. That seems close enough to 5 feet to not affect anything, but I thought I'd mention it.

Thanks in advance for any tips.
