You set the margins by putting the printhead where you want the margin set, and holding down the CODE key, push the key under where L MAR or R MAR is printed, (above the top keys on the keyboard) depending on whether you want to set the right or left margin.
If you want to set the left margin to the left of where it's set, hold down the CODE key and push the key under MAR REL. Then using the Backspace (or spacebar, if you backspace too far) position the printhead where you want the mar. set and holding down the CODE key, hit the key under L MAR.
Setting the right margin works the same way.

How do I increase the margins on the typewriter


To set a margin beyond the left or right margin, move the carrier (or cursor) to that margin, press the Margin Release key, then proceed to move the carrier (or cursor) to the desired position. Then, press the Left or Right margin key to set the new margin. A beep will sound indicating the new margin has been set. When you set a new left or right margin, the previous margin is automatically cleared.

Alternatively, you can type beyond the right margin by pressing the Margin Release key and then continue typing when the carrier (or cursor) stops at the right margin. To type beyond the left margin, press the Margin Release key and then the Backspace key to move the carrier (or cursor) to the position where you want to start typing.

How to reset the margins on Brother EM-530


On most electronic typewriters you change the margins by pressing the code button and holding down the press r margin or l margin on the key board. You want the carrier to be where you want the margin set. To set margins beyond the right or left margin move the carrier to the margin and press margin release to go past the margin. Then press code left or right margin.

Changing margins


To change or reset margins, the keys involved are the ALT key to the left of the spacebar, the #keys 3,4, & 5.

The ALT & '3' keys are used to bypass the set margins.

To bypass the left margin, move the carrier to the left margin. Press the ALT & '3' keys at the same time. Release them then backspace the carrier to the point the new margin is wanted. Press the ALT and '4' keys at the same time to set the new left margin.

To bypass the right margin, move the carrier to the right margin. Press the ALT & '3' keys at the same time. Release them and spacebar to the point where the new right margin is wanted. Press the ALT & '5' keys to set the new right margin.
The main thing to remember is to move the carrier to the point where the new margin is needed. ALT + 3 bypasses old margins, ALT + 4 sets the left margin, & ALT + 5 sets the right margin.

How to use the margin release for Brother EM-530


Is Margin Release on it's own separate button on the EM-530? If so, then to move beyond a margin:
  • Use Return or Tab to go to the left or right existing margin.
  • Touch Margin Release.
  • Use the Backspace or Space bar to go beyond the margin in question.
  • If you want to set a new margin, then go to the location you want to have it and touch the Left margin or Right Margin button.
Some models may require the CODE key to access one or more of these functions. If the function name is not printed on the top of the key, but on its front or on the surrounding plastic above the button, press and hold the CODE key while touching that button (just as you hold the Shift key to type capitals). The CODE key might possibly have a different name; chances are it's color will match the functions it works with.

How to clear margin when in use


Left margin...use the code key (colored)
Move the carriage to where you want the margin, use margin release if you have to go beyond the present margin, and use the margin set key to set.
You have to reset a margin. can't just clear one.
Can set margins at each end of the typing line, then you will have no margins.
Hope this helps!!!

Pitch will not go off, can not set margins because of this


Pitch is the spacing between typed letters.
Pitch should be set (either 10 or 12 ) as indicated on the printwheel. I'm pretty sure that there's no "off" setting. To Set:

For 10 pitch: Press and hold [ALT] while pressing [$/4] key.
For 12 pitch: Press and hold [ALT] while pressing [%/5] key.

To set margins beyond current settings: First release margins.
Backspace or spacebar to the current margin
Press and hold [ALT] while pressing [^/6] key.
[ALT] and [&/7] for left, [ALT] and [*/8] for right

hope this helps

How to change the pitch?


Here ya go...

Margins and Tabs
Margins and tabs for both Type Mode and Mem Mode are set in Type
Mode, but can be changed in Mem Mode when text is recalled for
editing. Margins and tabs are set using the typing scale which appears
on the display in Type Mode. A blinking cursor indicates the typing
position. The letter “L” indicates your left margin setting. The letter “R”
indicates your right margin setting.
NOTE: In Mem Mode, the margins and tabs used when the text
is created will be saved with the text and recalled with it,
even if they have been changed.
Margins
In Type Mode, to signal that you are near the right margin, the
typewriter will beep 5 spaces before the margin. In Mem Mode, the text
will wrap automatically when you print.
Margins are preset depending on the pitch setting, which is the number
of characters per inch. They are:
10 Pitch 12 Pitch 15 Pitch
(Pica) (Elite) (Micro)
Left Margin 12 14 18
Right Margin 72 86 108
New margin settings remain until changed again.
1. Move the Mode Selector to Type. A typing scale appears on
the display.
2. Move the cursor using the Spacebar or Back Space to the desired left
margin setting on the scale.
3. Press Margin.
4. Move the cursor using the Spacebar to the desired right margin
setting on the typing scale.
5. Press Code + Margin. A beep confirms each new margin setting.
6. You can change to Mem Mode, if desired.

Take care,
