    Word Document with Bad Margins


    I am setting the margins to 3.7 on the left, 2.5 on the other sides. However when I am printing, the margins do not have the right dimensions. As this is for my thesis I couldn't upload the original document but I uploaded one, just for you to check the settings.

    Please I really need your help.Settings.docxSettings.docxSettings.docx

    what are you using to print your docx? I mean software Office, Open Office, Online Office, or something completely different?

    Yes it does look good. However it is difficult to check exactly the dimensions on a pdf

    What software are you viewing the PDF in? check the print preview before you hit print. a setting in your print options may be causing the issue.

    I am using Acrobat DC. When I put it of print settings, the fit to scale is telling me that the size of my document is bigger than A4 ... however in the word, thats how I made it.

    So are using Acrobat DC like you said at the beginning of your last post, or are using Word like you said at the end of your last post?
