[Bug] N-up prints measures from printable margin instead of paper edge


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have just tried N-up print for PAT labels It seems that the left and top margins are being taken from printer defined printable area rather than from paper edges.

setting:

actual print:

Printer margins are 4.2mm, so istead of printing 10mm from left and 9mm from top of the paper it prins 10+4.2=14.2 mm from left e.g. 10 from left print margin and 13.2 (9+4.2) from top

I find a similar problem. HP LaserJet Pro MFP M225-M226 PCL 6. Letter size (ANSI A) paper. Printing labels.

The margins are off about 0.187 inch both down and left. The top of the first label is 0.6875 inch from the top of the page instead of 0.500, and the left edge of the first label is 2.625 inches from the edge of the page instead of 2.437 inches.

AS a workaround I substract the printers' margin  from the left and top offset you can put expression inside the left and top offset in the above case Left 10-4.2 top 9-4.2 then you get expected printout.

You can find your printer margin from new file dialogue setting tick include margin (temporarily) and press retrieve margins from the printer.:

The problem I had with the printing being off about .1875 inch at the top and the left seems to be fixed in Publisher version 1.7.0.145.

...but I really need to be able to save the Layout data that I use for printing labels. Recreating this every time is a pain.

And the print preview is uselessly small.

If you look at the screenshot you provided above, you'll see a button labeled "Save As..." to the right of the Profile field at the top of the dialog. Once you've set it all up as you like, click that button and provide a filename on the next dialog page. When you need that layout again, click the Profile dropdown and choose the one you saved.

YES!! I tried this in an earlier version without success, but it works now. THANKS.

Now, if we had a useful preview...
