Smaller Margins - DesignJet 430

HP Recommended
HP Designjet 430
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hello, I am printing sheets for an architecture firm, and noticed our titleblock had been cutting off.  Our plotter is a DesignJet 430, easily over a decade old. After sitting in a shelf for about a year, we at the firm have decided to operate it once more.  My operating sysem is Windows 7 (64-bit)


The default margin appears to be .67in, while our titleblock is offset at 1/2" from the paper's edge.  I've heard changing the driver may result in different margins, but am unable to locate a driver online.


How may I resolve this issue?

The Leading and Trailing edge margins are 177 mm (0.67in) which perfectly meets your description, meaning this is an hardware limitation per its specficiations and not related to its drivers..


You may find its user guide below, see page 10–3 which refers to its margins:


Generally the Designjet 430 is not compatible with Windows 7, but as said this is not related to the driver and these margins will result anyway..:
