How to set right margin on writing page in Outlook 2007

I would like to find out how to set the on-screen right margin during composition with Outlook 2007. On this computer there are two of us who have Outlook accounts. On the page for writing emails the text margin for the other user is about 3 or 4 spaces from the sidebar. This is with Vista Ultimate on a 24" monitor. On my Outlook page, however, the text margin is about three inches from the right edge of the screen. Both of us do have the sidebar enabled. It is aesthetically displeasing to me to have such a large unused space on the right of the screen. at the same time, I'm quite sure that the margin setting would not make any difference to the recipient of the email, as their machine would adjust what gets to their address would be tailored by there computer to conform to their screen. I have been unable to find out how to reset the margin even having used the F1 help menu. I simply can't find it mentioned. I would like for the right margin in my Outlook to be more like that of the other user. How can I go about making such an adjustment? In both cases the left margin is only a very few spaces from that edge; I would simply like to be able to use more of the screen without all the unused space. I know how to make such an adjustment in Word 2007, but I can't find that option in Outlook. To say that I'm frustrated is an understatement. Thank you for your attention and help. My email address is CharlesEtheridge@comcast.net. I look forward to your reply.

    For the record, this is the case with my Gateway FX530XV. The ruler at the top of the screen as things are now goes up to about #28. Thanks for the help.

    There seems to be a bit of a misunderstanding. The suggested answer was fine for the margins on a printed page but it didn't seem to be related to the text margin during composition on the monitor and that is what i want to modify. As I said in my previous added comment the ruler as it is goes up to
    # 28. Thanks.

If your background is interesting, you'll probably want it to show down the left-hand side. You cannot set a right margin.

There should be some type of margin adjustment at the top where you will be able to set the adjustment of how far you want the margin to be. Most of them have an auto preset to allow how much space it is programmed to let you type in. Some of them will not let you change them, but others should. Try this: click on the vertical bar right above the area where you type in the messages you want to send and that should allow you to change the margin.

Hi

By spacing, I assume you mean the margins at the centre.

The default margin settings are not the same for the right and left hand side of the page, so the printing on the reverse side is offset from the printing on the first side.

The right margin is always wider to allow for punch holes in file paper.

It is not the printer settings you need to adjust, it is the page layout of your word processing software.

Adjust the margin settings manually. In MS Office 2007:

Page Layout > Margins > Mirrored Margins.

Hope this helps.

Cannot print avery labels, get message the margins of section 1 are set outside the printable page, or will run thru printer , printing complete get blank page


I assume this error is occuring in Microsoft Word.
  1. Create a new document, with a full page of the label you are having trouble printing.
  2. To see the margin settings of your document, go to File > Page Setup (or Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins for Word 2007).
  3. Click OK on the margins dialog, and Word will check the settings against your currently selected printer. If a margin is set outside the printable area (usually the bottom margin set to zero), you should see the warning message.
  4. Click the Fix button to have Word change the margins
    to match your printer. You should now see the Margins dialog with the new margin settings.
  5. Click OK.
One thing to watch for- on some inkjet printers, the printable area is narrower than the labels. This will cause the labels to shift to the right on the page and be misaligned when you print.
If the labels run off the right edge of the page display, or are misaligned when you print, an extra procedure is needed.
  1. Undo ([Ctrl]+[Z]) the new margin setting, or create a new page from the label template again.
  2. Select the entire table of labels ([Ctrl]+[A]).
  3. Right-click the table, and select Table Properties.
  4. Click the Text wrapping "Around" option, then the Positioning button.
  5. Change the Horizontal position to Center, Relative to Page.
    Uncheck the "Move with text" option. Click OK to the Table Positioning dialog, then click OK to the Table Properties dialog.
  6. Left-click (or press an arrow key) to "deselect" the table, then go into the margins dialog (see above) and allow Word to fix the margin settings again.
With the labels aligned to the page, rather than the margins, the new margin settings should not cause the labels to shift.
Once you have the margins set correctly for your printer, I would save the empty page of labels to use as a "template".
