Print question

By miklv ·
This may sound like an incredibly stupid question but I would like to know why printers or the printer software limits how much of a page can be printed on. I have a brochure I'm working on and no matter what I do I can't go any closer to the outside edge than a quarter of an inch. Does anyone know why this is or what can be done to print further out?

Each printer has its own limitations.
Go to Programs>Accesories WordPad.
On the File meu choose Page setup and change to margins to 0 all around. Click OK and then go back to Page setup. You will see the minimum for your default printer. if you'retrying to use "bleeding:" with a brousure, you could put it, say, in the middle of a larger page and then trim the results.

Reset your word document border properties

If you are printing from a word document for example you could try:
File/print and when the dialog box offering a printer to from appears click the options tab in the bottom left hand corner of this box.
Then from the options deselect the use printer settings.
Hope this helps

Check your printer settings and make sure that there are no border stting there. Sometimes the printer settings will override the software .
