margins set outside printable area
Posted on 2003-12-01
When I set Word 2002 (XP operating system) margins at top and bottom (.75") and right and left (1"), in portrait orientation and click OK, I get the message "One or more margins are set outside the printable area of the page. Choose the Fix button to increase the appropriate margins." When I click Fix, the bottom margin changes to 2.67". If I change to landscape orientation, the left margin becomes 2.67". Back in portrait orientation with the margins set as above, if I click the Ignore button, when I print only the top 8 3/8" of the page prints and the bottom is blank, and the left margin of the printed page is about 2 5/8". The margins in setup still appear as I set them, although the printed page is messed up.
