The following s the word document page setup,



How can we configure the document as to display the whole footer contents?

Thank you.

Excel is not Word and has different objectives. It can be used and updated indefinitely without ever being printed. A Word document is primarily bound for completion and then printing.

In Word, the positioning of all the elements is calculated during the pagination process that takes place at least once after the document is opened. The process refers to the current printer driver in deciding where things will fit in the current environment. The driver for PDF will be different from the HP driver and will make different decisions in detail.

Many physical printers cannot do borderless printing, i.e. print to the edge of the page. This Microsoft article explains it better:

My instinct would be to try adjusting the bottom margin.

Can you upload the document to look at. The document body can be blank so long as we can see the footer settings.

It's a standard document, no special stuff.  I did notice that when printing to PDF displays everything but in printer, it hides half - but will upload an example

I can see the whole of the page number in preview on my system. I think that your print driver might be miscalculating the cutoff position.

Don't think so.

When I print a document in excel with footer it prints correctly using the same printer driver (FYI, the driver  is HP Desk-jest 2540 series).

So it has to be Word apps.
