    I have set my header and footer so that there is no default white line showing around the edge.

    Looks Like This In Word.png

    Header:

    • Header From Top / Bottom: 0"
    • Width: 8.2"
    • Height: 1.25"
    • Offset X: 0"
    • Offset Y: -0.25"
    • Crop Position: Width 8.2"
    • Crop Position: Height 1.44"

    Footer:

    • Footer From Top / Bottom: 0"
    • Width: 8.5"
    • Height: 1.18"
    • Offset X: -0.21"
    • Offset Y: 0.21"
    • Crop Position: Width 8.5"
    • Crop Position: Height 1.18"
    Obviously it looks good in Word. But when I save to PDF (I get the "A header and a footer of section 1 are set outside the printable area of the page. Do you want to continue?" dialog box) it still gives me the default white margins.

    Any assistance?

    Hi LadyJemima,

    I found this on google for MS Word on apple. I believe this should work on windows MS Word aswell.

    In Word file, go to Page Setup:
    Settings - Page Attributes
    Format for - Any Printer
    Paper Size - click here and then click on Manage Custom Sizes

    Click + to add new size - name it PDF borderless
    Click in the paper size boxes to make 8.5 x 11 (or whatever you need)
    Make sure Non-Printable Area says User Defined, and change margins in boxes to 0
    Click OK

    Go to Print menu:
    Printer - choose any
    Presets - Standard
    Click on PDF - Save as PDF
    Choose file name and save location
    Click Save

    I found the original on this forum here in case it helps:

    Yasink, that did work. I had read it earlier but didn't think it would work for me (it did!) Thank you!
