EXCEL 2019 GRAPH DOES NOT MATCH PREVIEW SO IT PRINTS OFF THE PAGE

Occasional Visitor

I have a simple spreadsheet with two columns of data. I created a chart and when I Print Preview it, it looks great, but when I actually print it (i.e. HP laser printer, HP officejet, Adobe PDF, etc.) it prints out larger than expected and does not fit the page. I attached screen shots of what it looks like.

I am proficient in Excel, so here are things I've tried with no improvement: Increased chart's margins, decreased chart's margins, Cleared print area, Moved the chart to new page, Deleted and recreated the chart, Deselected "Scale content for A4 or 8.5 x 11 paper sizes" setting, Shrunk the actual chart, Tried different printers, etc.

None of it is working. Please help.

Notes: Windows 10 Pro, Excel 2019
