Printouts missing rightmost characters (no wrap?)

Printouts missing rightmost characters (no wrap?)

Printouts missing rightmost characters (no wrap?)

(OP)
Often when I print textual web pages, it does not print characters or words along the right margin. I've tries adjusting my right margin to 1 or more inches, but this does not always work. This occurs at work and at home and client sites so it is not printer specific.

You'll always get, what you always got!!

RE: Printouts missing rightmost characters (no wrap?)

Find out how much of a standard page your printer will print, then set the margins in printer properties to the same thing. It's setting the properties to NO margins (or smaller ones) that you want, not bigger.
Alternatively, copy and paste into wordpad, and print from there.

Cheers,

But it doesn't even print the missing characters or graphics on another (adjacent) page. It simply drops and loses the rightmost margin.

I had that problem and it was too much trouble, so I changed the properties to landscape and it printed ok.

Internet Explorer will just print exactly whatever is on the screen no matter if it goes outside the page boundaries.  it does not work like Microsoft word which will push the tex to the next page.  You will have to change the page type to landscape.
