Hi Andrea,

I have even tried this and would like to say this is an alignment issue. Because in classic, the dashboard component size would fit into A4 paper size(for Printing purpose) but in Lightning dashboard, this is not the case. The component size is wider.

So even if you reduce the screen resolution, print / save as PDF will not give you best result in lightning.

However we have an idea in place to provide the ability to print the dashboard (of course to save it as PDF as well):  https://success.salesforce.com/ideaView?id=08730000000Br59AAC

So you can click on the IDEA and UPVOTE for it, as the status is under consideration we may expect this feature to upcoming releases.

Please mark this as best answer if this answered your query.
