HOLD DOWN THE "ALT" KEY THEN HIT THE 3 KEY THEN USE THE BACK SPACE OR SPACEBAR TO REPOSITION THE PRINTHEAD. THIS WILL ALLOW YOU TO MOVE PAST THE MARGIN ONE TIME. IF YOU WANT THE MARGIN SET IN A DIFFERENT POSITION - MOVE THE PRINTHEAD TO WHERE YOU WANT THE MARGIN SET, HOLD DOWN THE ALT KEY AND PUSH THE 4(L MAR) OR 5 (R MAR)

Setting nargins


The keys used for margin control on the brothers is the ALT key just to the left of the space bar, and the #3,4,& 5 keys.

To move outside the present margin to the left, backspace to the left margin. Press the ALT and '3' keys at the same time to bypass the margin. Back space past the margin to the point where the margin is to be set. At the point you want the new left margin, press the ALT and '4' keys at the same time to set the new left margin.

To move outside the present margin to the right, spacebar over to the right margin. Press the ALT and '3' keys at the same time to bypass the margin. Then spacebar over to the point where the new right margin is to be set. Press the ALT and '5' keys at the same time to set the new right margin.

The basics are that the ALT +3 releases margins, ALT +4 sets the left margin at the point of the carrier, ALT + 5 sets the right margin at the point of the carrier.

Hope this helps.

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 do I reset the right margin for my Brother ML300


Hi:

Most of these small portable typewriters have dual function keys. You need to find the keytop that has Margin Release on it. It might say Mar Rel. If this in in a color that is different then what ever else is on the key then this is a daul function key. What this means is that you also have to look for a code or mode key. Once you find that hold that key down while pressing the Mar Rel key once. Then release both keys and use the backspace key to back up through where your left margin is currently set. Once you have done that you can reset the left margin at that point by findind and pressing the Left Margin key. Note that the left margin key might also be a dual function key.
You can extend the right margin by spacing to it and then doing the same procedure above , but this time release the right margin and space throught it and then reset it where you want it.

Good Luck

Typewriters have alimit to how far to the right or left that you can set margins. Once you use the alt & 6 key to bypass the current margin setting then move to the new setting then hold the alt key and touch the 7 key to keep it in the new position.
