JSI Tip 1431. How can I determine the minimum margins for a print driver?

The easiest way to determine the minimum margins for a print driver is:

1. Open Notepad and hold down the period (.) until the window scrolls at the bottom. Make sure that Format / Word Wrap is NOT checked.

2. Use File / Print to select the printer and print the page(s).

3. Choose Page Setup from the File menu.

4. Type 0 into the Left, Right, Top, and Bottom margins. As you tab out of each box, the minimum margin is displayed.

5. As a test, print the page.
