Try, File/Page setup/Layout tab, click on borders/options and in the "Measure from" box. Change from "Edge of page" to "Edge of text" This may help.

Is it a constraint of your printer?

Some inkjets leave quite a lot of 'white' at the bottom of the page to stop getting ink into the feed mechanismes!

I've just done a job for a colleague that prints perfectly on my laser printer - but the last bit is always missing on his inkjet.

Chris the Ancient, Your quite correct in saying that. Some inkjets will not print on the last 1/2" of the page, as this is still being gripped by the rollers. Others will print right down to the very edge.

One of the forum members had this problem early last year. In office 97 it wouldn't print to the edge but on upgrading to Office 2000 it would. Same printer with both office suites.

Regards. j.
