Retrieve margins from printer

Recommended Posts

This works fine when creating a new document. But if you create a document then try to retrieve marging from printer using spread setup Document or master, it changes the values in the dialog box but not the spread. next time you go to margin setup they revert.

Typing a margin size in manually works

I experience a bug vice versa:

• Changing margins of a master page successfully transfers this change to the according document pages immediately. Fine so far. But ...:

• "Retrieve Margins from Printer" results in weird margins. (... as it did before with any AfPub's beta).


Printer & document page size are A4 (210 x 297 mm). The printer works well with a margin of 5 mm.
I wonder where AfPub retrieves these margins from; they are not from the installed and selected printer.

p.s.: actually this issue does not influence my workflow since I can use my default 5 mm and get them reminded by AfPub for new documents even without saving as a preset.  In addition, I assume that such a theoretical printer margin is often larger than the real technical + practical printer margin - and therefore all "retrieved" values might differ from what is desired and get set manually anyway.
