Ok, I've been reading this on my phone and the software question didn't make a lick of sense to me, so I came to my computer to look at it.  Cheesy 
First off, I've had this issue myself a few times and I've fixed it a variety of ways. (Gotta love the computer, eh?)
The first thing that I would reccomend would be making sure that you have the most updated version of Adobe.  That has fixed it about 3 times for me. 
Second, often times, when the item to be printed opens, you're printer window will open, and there is usually an option there that has to do with sizing.

What kind of printer are you using?


its a fairly old printer so thats what i think it is but thank you all so much x

I was going to comment on using something other than floss to joint with. My first poppet I used upholstery thread. I didn't joint her tight enough to begin with  but her jointing and "looseness" is exactly as it was when I made her.
The others I've found nearly impossible to get tight enough. At least at the hips. I can get the arms nice and tight now.
But the hips seem to loosen up in just getting them dressed the first time and taking a few pictures. So I probably wouldn't recommend using anything any MORE stretchy than the dental floss. I wonder if embroidery floss would work or some other thin natural fiber.
Something that stretches only so much. I have some crochet cotton thread that might work. I'll have to try it and see. Smiley

Whenever I joint, I always kinda "suck in" parts of the body, I think it kinda folds in itself, for example, I pull it so tight that the shoulder sticky outty/ hippy sticky outty area are no longer all that noticeable... I found that the last poppet I made, the jointing in the legs loosened quite a bit I think because I have never moved a poppet around, measured, and all that jazz so much for an outfit, and I always use non-flavoured floss...

OMG, my Joann's is CLOSING!!!  Cry

This is the second one this year. The only one left near me is in Annapolis, almost 45 min way. I don't know what I'm going to do. I was able to get some pretty good deals but everything was still pretty expensive. I guess I'm going to have to order offline now *sigh* the economy is wreaking havoc with my craft life.

That's horrifying! I don't know what I would do if my Joann's closed!

I do that too. Though I find I don't like the shoulders much that way. I also sometimes accidentally joint to far forward or back on the hips. The "baby" poppets I did one of them was like that. And the fabric was so thin I couldn't fix it.
Oh my gosh I am loving this poppet I'm working on right now. She's so pretty! I want to make her a headband. Anyone know of a good crochet pattern for one? I want to weave a certain piece of ribbon though it so I need something fairly open. I may have to come up with a pattern myself if I can't find one...

*Horror* Your Joanns is closing!
So sorry.

I've used embroidery floss for jointing. It works as well as anything else. I didn't like the dental floss, too sticky. Upholstery thread was good, but I had to go and get it on a special trip. The thing that I found that works best for me, is the gold denim thread.
I've joined the mini poppet swap. After taking a break from poppets to do more challenging dolls, I'm ready to make a sweet little poppet boy for sewhappysue. I want to keep him a secret though, so I won't be posting in my doll WIPs thread. I curious to see what Ghilie makes this time.

I am making a poppet whoot ! My first one with Ghilies pattern (thankyou sooo much !!)
So far I have 2 legs and 2 arms. I do have to needle joint the vingers and toes.
BUT I don't have the right buttons to insert for jointing. So I am going to dive into my (mums) closet to find a blouse with those buttons !
Or if anyone else has an other idea what I can use? Can't I use little rings (the ones you use to connect e.g. a bead on a bracelet.)
