Does anyone have any tips on advanced printing options?

When I print a PDF on A3, it automatically centres it vertically so there is a white band along the top and bottom edge. I would rather have it up against the top edge of the paper, with a wider gap at the bottom. This would make the space more usable for writing notes on. Any suggestions how I can do this?

The closest I've managed to get is to print it out to a bitmap, and then print the bitmap in another application. This reduces the resolution dramatically, the text is much more fuzzy.

Any suggestions how I can print a PDF in full resolution, whilst controlling the paper margins?

Perhaps this would need a PDF editor to save the document with a different page size, so that the layout is baked into the document. I don't think I have any software that could do that.

This is what I want:


This is the resolution when converted to a bitmap and printed:


This is the native resolution when printed from Acrobat Reader, without being able to adjust the margins:
