Publisher 2000 not printing edges of document...HELP


J

Jamie

I have been trying to print postcards and a schedule for
my students and it looks good on the screen, objects are
within the print lines (blue and pink) but when it prints
on my hp printer, edges of the document are missing, cut
off in mid line, like margins are wrong or something and I
don't know how to fix it. Cany anyone point me in the
right direction.

Thanks, this helped me figure out my margins, but when I
go into Publisher to set up margins for post cards and
brochures, there is no place for margin setting? I can't
figure out how to make this work.
Try Arrange > Layout Guides
If you are printing to cardstock, this may prevent the cards from lining up
properly on the page.

That is one of the things that does drive me nuts about Publisher. Every
other Office app handles margins the same way, and I don't know about anyone
else but I get so used to the way Word, Excel, et al handle margins that I
get temporarily befuddled when I fire up Publisher. I understand the
rationale behind why Publisher is unique in its approach, I truly do, but
that doesn't make it any less frustrating since the majority of my work is
in Word and Excel.

Maybe this is where I fire off another suggestion to MS: add the equivalent
menu function for margins to Publisher and have it automatically drop in
layout guides to match the user-requested margin settings. May be overkill,
but it sure would help those of us who bounce between numerous Office
constituents...

The only "margins" in Publisher are those put on by the printer.
You can position objects anywhere on a Publisher page.
But the guides show you where it is practical to put objects - so that they
don't make the page look cluttered or so you are aware of where the printer
will put its margins.
In other software, you cannot print outside of the software margins without
using outdents, headers, or footers.

The bottom line:
Publisher is DTP, not anything else. It's always going to do things
differently.

I understand all that. I think maybe I'm just not communicating my thoughts
and desires well.
