Pages don't align for printing and sometimes cuts off sentences. Wrap to page, or at least have a ruler / grid that shows where the printing page cuts off

Printing is seriously lacking and very inconvenient for how much I use this app.
I think Microsoft totally doesn't care about this.
This serious problem has been around for 5 YEARS (!!), and they pretend they don't know about it:
I'm wondering why I'm paying my Office 365 subscription... for buggy software without any follow-up of critical issues.

Please fix this issue. It looks bad on microsoft to have such a great program such as microsoft oneNote contain such lack of attention in certain areas. Microsoft created Microsoft word, so I know they are capable of improving the print feature. Also, I just want to mention that I love oneNote, and use it for all of my notes (not without backing up of course), but I would love to see this feature improved. It's one of my biggest complaints.
Whenever I try to print one of the pages that I created during one of my lectures at uni (consisting mostly of printed out PDF files and handwritten text & drawings), the whole process is a big old PITA.
It usually starts with me finalizing my notes, then going to print > print to PDF and then finding out that the whole thing is one big mess of cut-off notes, illegible text and loads of unneccessary, to some number completely empty pages.
What I then normally do (after I am finished having a minor fit) is to go to (sorry, I am using the german version, so I don't have all the terms in english) pageview (the icon with the sheet of paper and the little magnifying glass) and then I manually adjust the size of all the PDFs and all the handwriting, checking wheter it might print out correctly, adjusting again, checking, and so on. Sometimes, even when the tool says i'ts going to be printed out allright, the printed out document then still is all messed up. This whole process, quite frankly, costs a s***load of time and nerves.
So please, finally, include a way to adjust the page size OR the content automatically so that it does not exceed a specific aspect ratio (e.g. DIN A4 or 8.3x11.7in)!!
Please allow pages to fit to page when printing. I have just discovered One Note, and love it, however the inability to print out a page properly is debilitating and renders it useless for the purpose i had hoped to use it. Please fix this as soon as possible.
P.S. And please provide it ASAP, as this should have been in the original release over 10 years ago! Us students would love this in place by the time Fall semester starts.
If OneNote is a school tool, then sell it like one! Updates should correlate to the school year just like school supplies do in stores!
Please add Page-Break View like in excel!!! This is URGENT!
This is among the biggest hindrances to using OneNote for my Grad classes. How the heck am I supposed to print my HW to pdf (or hard copy) to turn it in? I spend way too much time on something that should be semi-automatic. This is so frustrating and one of the reasons I cannot recommend OneNote to my fellow students, because it lacks one of the simplest but easiest things! There may be a better way to do this than page break view, but please provide a reasonable way to print and export to pdf in a clean and professional way!
Onenote is made to be a virtual notebook, everyone understands that, but unless the whole world decides to stop printing and only use virtual notebooks the lack of proper printing tools and functions/help is NOT ACCEPTABLE. This shitty formatting is limiting Onenote's ability to be used formally.
Printing as a whole is a nightmarish experience on Onenote, and this isn't just limited to printing on paper. A simple google search will turn up hundreds of recounts of how irritating it is to print into Onenote from the PDF format, either the font is horrible, resolution is off, or images are just automatically rotated for no darn reason. Its already a hassle and a time waster to bring documents from PDF to onenote, but the real nightmare is printing from Onenote itself. I don't understand why printing an A4 into onenote does not return a simple A4 printout.
Never mind that previous comment, I don't even have the option of page break lines or any help for that matter. As the current usage goes i feel like Onenote is actually wasting paper because the space never gets fully utilised. Please rethink the whole printing process in Onenote, both printing into and printing from. Its as if this software was designed with the genuine believe that people would stop printing overnight..
I would like to be able to print a selection (selected text only).

Lots of improvements are required in printing to PDF.
Applies to Office Office 2013 Microsoft Office OneNote Office for Windows 8.1
MY PREVIOUS POSTS on almost identical subject still remains unanswered. Hence this one.
I am a fan of ON13. I work a lot on PDFs imported in to ON13 by printing them in to ON13 with specific page sizes.
After marking them up, when I try exporting these pages in to PDF, they get printed out crazily. I surmise that this is because of the page header that ON13 inserts on these 'printouts'.
I desperately need the PDFs export function to be able to use and share my work.
There is no Print Settings dialog in ON13, for example to be able to "Scale the page to print size". OR
The inclusion of header in the PDF printout could be ignored and the page printed as such, but this might remove some markups made in the area around the Page Header.
(By 'Page Header' I mean the the 'Page Name' that is automatically assumed by ON13.)
This is desperately required and is a very basic expectation from such a great software, which has made life so easy for many others.

This. I use OneNote for my lecture notes and it's ridiculous that the PC version can print out my notes perfectly fine, but the Mac version cuts everything off at the end of the page.
