Print on papper smaller than I see in Word preview.

ACER Aspire Revo RL80
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When I print a Word-document with a copied picture it looks OK in Word preview.

But in the resulting paper the picture is cut in the right margin.

HP DeskJet 2620.  /Regards Tomas Westin[edit]

Ideas...

 

Preferences - Correct odd / wrong-sized Image Sizes (for example, when printed from Word)

 

Control Panel > icon view > Devices and Printers > Right-Click on your printer > Printing Preferences >

Tab Layout > Click Advanced > Switch OFF HP Real Life Technologies

 

===============================================================

 

Make sure you are using Insert to place images into your Word document (as opposed to copy / paste.

After the image is inserted, you can Right-Click on the image to adjust the Size and Position.

 

Placement can also be adjusted for Wrap Text parameters, for example, Tight, Left, Right, In Line

 

===============================================================

Margins must not be smaller than those allowed by the printer.  For example, most printers will tolerate "Narrow" margins (.5 inches on a side).  Best to check.  Remember, Headers and Footers, too, must be inside the allowed margin area.

 

Printers do not all support Borderless - for those printers that do support the option, Borderless may not be supported on all paper sizes / Media types. 

 

Check your printer's Specifications  and or the Datasheet for "what the printer can do".

 

Example - Datasheet

Print area

Print margins: Top: 3 mm, Bottom: 12.7 mm, Left: 3 mm, Right: 3 mm

Maximum print area: 215 x 355 mm
Borderless printing No

 

===============================================================

If all else fails, shove the image into a Text Box.

 

Insert Text box

Then Insert your image inside the box

  • Use Insert (as opposed to copy / paste) when placing images into a document
  • If images will not stay contained in spite of margins:
    • Insert a Text box of the size necessary to contain the image
    • Insert the Image inside the empty text box
