ive been trying to get the printing correct. i have set the margins the same in both the app and my pdf. my registrations for 1A, 1B, 1C, etc is correct but going down is incorrect. the user manual says the target marks should be 3in apart. they are in each individual page but when matching up the lines in different pages they are not. for example going from 4 to 5 is less than 3in but the lines are matching up. Is that how its supposed to be? or are they supposed to be 3 in apart as in the manual ?

I always make sure the registration marks from page to page are 3" apart e.g. from #4 of one page to #5 of the next page. Very infrequently the pattern lines overlap a tiny bit or leave a very small gap, usually less than 1/16", but that's never been an issue.
If you align the #4 #5 dots to be exactly 3" apart, how much of a gap or overlap do you see with the pattern lines?
I find that the 3” vertical measurement is accurate if I meet the ends of the printed lines. There is no overlap, like on the horizontal matching. The paper pages overlap, but the pattern lines butt up to each other. That works for all my vertical markings, like side seams, vertical darts, etc.
I have Canon IX6860 Capable of <> 2.3 sheets of US Std fanfold? continuous. ie (1) 279 down x 381 mm across that I trim the width of. I am getting sick of the .3 sheet cut so will be going back to just 2 sheets at a time. Generally I have a fair overlap with base margins set. I sometimes allow the actual full grid lines to print in colour so I can double check. I DO NOT print in PDF format as it is not required in DS. If I print single sheets I find that I have to insert a piece into patterns or make top margin larger to allow for the absence it sounds like you are getting on ?each sheet. you do not say what printer OS or paper size/type you are using. I always print in columns vertically not rows.
