  (setvar "BLIPMODE" 0)
  (setvar "OSMODE" 0)
  ;(setvar "LAYOUTREGENCTL" 1)

  (setq lyout (vla-get-activelayout adoc))
  (setq styleSheet "monochrome.ctb")
  (setq cfgName "AutoCAD PDF (High Quality Print).pc3")
  (vla-RefreshPlotDeviceInfo lyout)

  (setq i -1)
  (repeat (sslength ss)
    (setq i (1+ i))
    (setq tk_ent (ssname ss i))
    (vla-GetBoundingBox (vlax-ename->vla-object tk_ent) 'minpoint 'maxpoint)
    (setq pointTemp1 (vlax-make-safearray vlax-vbDouble '(0 . 1)))
    (vlax-safearray-put-element pointTemp1 0 (vlax-safearray-get-element  minpoint 0))
    (vlax-safearray-put-element pointTemp1 1 (vlax-safearray-get-element  minpoint 1))

    (setq pointTemp2 (vlax-make-safearray vlax-vbDouble '(0 . 1)))
    (vlax-safearray-put-element pointTemp2 0 (vlax-safearray-get-element maxpoint 0))
    (vlax-safearray-put-element pointTemp2 1 (vlax-safearray-get-element maxpoint 1))
    (vla-SetWindowToPlot lyout pointTemp1 pointTemp2)

I have had this happen when automating plotting multi layouts and have no idea what caused it would put a margin on left auto on right done 1 at a time. Never really solved it, they were very old standard dwgs .
