Scanners copy everything it can see. So make sure it can see what you are copying.

I think your text document didn't fit the page. I have done that before. It overruns and the extra becomes the lines inbetween. To fix this use microsoft publisher to print it so that you can choose the paper size and the borders and fit the document within the space allowed.

Doesn't sound like your printer hardware. Try printing something other than your text document. If the page comes out clean/perfect then it means your printer is having a problem understanding your text document via print program translation. Otherwise try converting your text to pdf and print a sample page, if it works then again problem with software/printer translation.

Can I scan legal size paper with the Canon MP 240


You can scan the largest size of paper that will fit on the glass area of the scanner (the platten).

If your legal paper fits in this area or, at least the text printed on it fits well within the borders of platten, then you can scan it.

Your scan will show you a preview of the image scanned so you can see if all the text has been scanned from the original document before you save the scanned image on the computer or copy print it.

Legal Paper Size is: 8.5" x 14" (216mm x 356mm)

A4 Paper Size is: 210mm x 297mm

Letter Paper Size is: (8.5" x 11") 216mm X 279mm

This printer's Scanning Width is: A4/Letter

This printer's Scanning Length is: A4/Letter

I hope this helps.

How to write vertically in microsoft word

Do this:

1.Select the text you want in Landscape orientation.
2.Click the Page Layout tab on the Ribbon.
3.Click the arrow in the lower right corner of the Page Setup group.
4. In the Apply To list box, select Selected Text or, if you want the entire document, select Whole Document.
5.Click OK.

Or, if you don't want all the text on the page turned, do this:

1. Insert a table with enough columns to enable you to isolate your vertical text in its own column.
2. Put the text in that column.
3. Right-click in that column and select Text Direction.

Now you can turn that text while the rest of the page stays horizontal. You can turn off the table cell borders so they don't print and no one will know the difference.

Hope that helps.

Cannot print emailed air confirmation page -- when I select print, the only thing printed is the top line, e.g., United airlines, but not the reservation information. After that first one line, only...

Copy the text into the NOTEPAD application, to remove all text-formatting & text-colouring, e.g., "white" text over a "black" background will become "black" text over a "plain" background.

I need to print some cards with my printer, is it possible to reduct margin to zero? I have created the document without margins, but the printer cuts part of te documents... thank you for your help!

This is normal. Practically all printers have a 'non-printable area' which forms a border at the top and bottom and left and right hand sides of the page. Whilst your software may allow you to work with a zero margin, your printer is physically incapable of printing in the non-printable area and will simply cut-off any text or images that overflow into this region.

The best solution is to reduce the number of cards on your page so that you can bring the text back within the printable area of the page. Then print with normal or wide margins and trim the excess from your cards.

Printing problem in Microsoft Word 2003

Does the bottom border show up in Print Preview? Some printers will not print the full page, to include the border if it is too close to the papers edge. If you adjust the border to be further away from the pages edge, it should print. Instead of applying a page border, you may have to draw a border using a rectangle shape and apply the desired line style.
You can also try to adjust the border margin to measure from "edge of page" instead of measure from "text". This setting is on the options button located on the page border tab under the Borders and Shading window. This may allow you to adjust the margin enough to be able to print the border.

double check ALL the print settings (i.e. paper type, document type, etc). Depending on which option it is even one "box" or "setting" being changed can alter your printers function. Try looking for options that will auto detect the type of document you are printing (ie, color, with pic, plain, etc).
