Setting the Unprintable Region for Windows Printer Drivers

Q100065



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft Windows versions 3.0, 3.0a, 3.1, 3.11





SUMMARY

The unprintable regions of a page are regions where the printer cannot print because they are outside the margins allowed by a particular Windows printer driver. These regions are set either automatically (by design) or manually (by the user) in the printer driver.



MORE INFORMATION

If the unprintable region is set automatically, it cannot be changed. If the unprintable region is set manually, some printer drivers allow you to set the margins allowed as follows:

Windows 3.1 and 3.11

  1. In the Printer Setup dialog box, choose Options, then choose Margins.
  2. Adjust the margins as necessary and choose OK.

Windows 3.0 and 3.0a

  1. In the Printer Setup dialog box, choose Setup, select the appropriate printer model, and choose Margins.
  2. Adjust the margins as necessary and choose OK.
