    Documents are not printing correctly


    My boss formerly had Windows XP installed on her computer. She downloaded Windows 8, just recently. Additionally, she downloaded the new Office, so it may not be a Windows problem. But none of her documents are printing properly. They look fine on the print screen, but they all come out with asymmetrical margins. What is wrong? And how do we fix it? We have tried moving the margins, but they still print with a larger left margin.

    That's normal, actually. But maybe there are are some settings in the Printer that control how the margins are placed - You will have to choose Equal Margins and then set that up as the default setting. Try these settings:

    Click image for larger version

    Set "Minimize Margins to "ON" and it ought to put equal spaces between both sides - Normal Office Documents will have a slightly larger margin on the left side, this is a standard.
