Why does my Deskjet 1050A printer chop off 1 on the left side of a document I am trying to print?

If the only thing that you REALLY need to print is the last couple of pages then why not just print them only and correct the margins if need be. just a thought.

My printer -X1185 prints the page with a 3 inch blank area on the left side and some of the right side printing is off the page. This is typical in my e mail page, and even if I center the letter on...

Web site designers create Web pages for display on a monitor, not for users to print on 8.5- x 11-inch pieces of paper. This becomes obvious the first time you try to print a Web page. Content you need may get chopped off by the right printer margin, whereas content you don’t need, such as the site’s copyright information, will print on its own sheet of paper. Fortunately, you can avoid such problems with a little foresight.

Before printing any Web page, open Internet Explorer’s File menu and select Print Preview. The current Web page will appear on-screen exactly as it will print on paper. Scan the preview carefully. If it appears that some content is chopped off by the right margin, click the Page Setup button located directly to the right of the Print button in the upper-left corner of the Print Preview window. In the resulting Page Setup dialog box, adjust the left and right margins so that each is set to 0.25 inches. The extra inch of space you gain by resetting the margins should provide just enough room to accommodate all of the content on most sites. Click OK to save the changes and return to the Print Preview window.

Next, scan the preview to determine which pages contain the content you want to print. Take note of those pages and click the Print button in the upper-left corner of the Print Preview window. Locate the Print Range heading and select the Pages option. Type the number of the first page you want to print in the From field and type the number of the last page you want to print in the To field. For instance, if you want to print just the first three pages of a Web page’s content, type 1 in the From field and type 3 in the To field. If your browser doesn’t have To and From fields, type the range of pages (such as 1-3) in the corresponding field. Make sure your printer has paper and click Print.

Brother MFCJ870DW Cuts Off/Chops Off/Truncates Left Side Return Address By About Half An Inch On #10 Com Envelope, Suddenly Started Happening

Check carefully that you have specified it to use the # 10 and that the format does not include a wide margin. If that fails, try printing the Return address 'right justified' and see what happens.

How to adjust the print margins on a HP Deskjet 2050 J510c printer

Hello Bea Stanbery

You have revived a post from January 2012 which is going to confuse 'Anonymous' :>)

You need to check settings before you print, but first check your default setting in Printer - Properties. You need to make sure the paper is set to Letter in the USA or A4 in the UK.

Then when you create documents, make sure that authoring program is set for the same paper size.

The original poster of this post probably had the setting set to A4 or Legal which always chops of the bottom of the page because that paper is much longer.

When I print a label, there is a blank white space before and after the printed text. How do I reduce the amount of tape printed before and after the text so as to maximize the label tape available?

you can, change the margins to narrow. you'll decrease the right margin but not the left margin which accdg to my research, is the space needed for the ptouch to print.

Cant print page numbers or footer, they are cut in half

depending on your physical location you may need to change the default paper type for your printer..

American default is Letter, where as Australia is A4, these paper sizes are only slightly different.

I'd be checking your margins also in your document.... Are the numbers cut off when you do a print preview?

Image is partially cut off when printed

Your expert patiently talked me through several possibilities. Finally, in the print set-up window, I clicked on Properties in the upper right and made all my printing choices there. I still got a border, even though I didn't want one, but it was all the way around the photo...not on two sides, and the photo was not chopped off.

Print margins too large on Xerox DocuColor 12 - How do I reset?

Not sure this is what your needing but ,,

The Edge Erase default setting is No Erase, which enables the copies to print within 2 mm of each page edge. This is normally sufficient to remove shadows from the edges. If the dark edge is closer than 2 mm, you must set Edge Erase at Variable Erase.

The Variable Erase option enables the copier / printer to vary the amount of erasure from 0 to 50 mm in 1 mm increments. The same amount of erasure is applied to both top and bottom edges or right and left edges of the document.

  1. Select [Edge Erase] on the Added Features tab. The Edge Erase screen is displayed.
  2. Select [Variable Erase]. The Variable Erase screen is displayed.
  3. Under Top & Bottom Edges, use the [Up] arrow to increase the amount of erasure at the top and bottom edges. Use the [Down] arrow to decrease the amount of erasure at the top and bottom edges.
  4. Under Left & Right Edges, use the [Up] arrow to increase the amount of erasure at the left and right edges. Use the [Down] arrow to decrease the amount of erasure at the left and right edges.
  5. Under Original Orientation select the page orientation that most closely resembles the orientation of the document on the Document Glass.
  6. Select [Save]. The Edge Erase screen is displayed.
  7. Select [Save]. The Added Features tab is displayed and shows the new Edge Erase values.
