Print margins too large on Xerox DocuColor 12 - How do I reset?
We often print to SRA3 from tray 5. This should mean we can get 2 x A4 documents side by side - even when allowing for 3mm bleed & trim marks.
However, the outer edges of the artwork never quite fit on the page - they are chopped off. The print margins appear to be set at around 20mm. I don't believe this is to do with the way the file is set up to print as I've printed 2 up on SRA3 many times in the past to other Xerox DocuColor 12's. Can you help?

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.
Select [Edge Erase] on the Added Features tab. The Edge Erase screen is displayed.
Select [Variable Erase]. The Variable Erase screen is displayed.
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.
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.
Under Original Orientation select the page orientation that most closely resembles the orientation of the document on the Document Glass.
Select [Save]. The Edge Erase screen is displayed.
Select [Save]. The Added Features tab is displayed and shows the new Edge Erase values.

trailing edge (B-size print shown).
The printer displays no error code.
Note A-size prints are processed
through the printer with the short
