Printing cuts off top of report

I've discovered that using the File > Print (Print current page) option in Report Server is cutting off the top of the page - See below example.  I'm unsure how long this has been going on for, though we only relatively recently upgraded to the September 2022 version of PBIRS and Desktop (RS).

Comparison:  Report Server view on top.  Print preview shows cut-off top of the report image (which does match actual printed outcome)Comparison: Report Server view on top. Print preview shows cut-off top of the report image (which does match actual printed outcome)

Exporting via Desktop (RS) into a .pdf file works just fine, though this won't be an option for standard report consumers accessing the Report Server.  The cut-off to the top area of the report is consistent across files and browsers.  Tinkering has so far been unusccessful: no amount of resizing the report canvas, switching from landscape to portrait, or browser print scaling/to fit settings appears to make much difference.


Interestingly, increasing the top margin simply moves the cut-off report down the page.  It really feels as if the top of the report simply isn't being accepted as part of the printable image.

I couldn't find this anywhere else in known issues or on this forum.  Any thoughts?  Version details below for reference.
