BORDERS are too big

Default BORDERS are too big

Hi all,
have three pc's here at home. The latest addition (PC3) has a printing quirk.
All PC's use the same printer but just PC3 has top and bottom borders in WORD that are too big. Top is 1.27cm and bottom is 0.63cm but that is NOT how they render.



I have junked the normal.dot in case that was the culprit and dredged through every setting I can find but no, it looks hunky dory in the workng view and in print preview but when we print...
Some genius out there will know.

Hi rockerz,

Are you sure the document's page setup matches the paper size in the printer? If not, and the 'errant' PC has A4/Letter resizing activated, that might explain what you're seeing.

Hi Jamal,

That really doesn't address the underlying issue, though. One shouldn't need to work around it by such measures.
