Need urgent help with Microsoft Word! (plz)


OSNN Addict

I don't know why I haven't seen this anywhere on the net before because its not just me. I've talked to several friends all of which have the same problem and have different computers and different printers...
Problem is, I can never print page borders properly. It will always cut off the bottom horizontal line. I've tried increasing the border distance from the bottom of the page (Format > Borders and Shading > Page Border > Options > Bottom) all the way up to the max of 31 points but still no success. It even shows it cut off in the print preview.
And I know it's word screwing me around because other programs CAN print in that area so it's not a damn unprintable area as the annoying microsoft support articles like to claim.

Someone PLEASE help, I urgently need to print an important document with borders...

Thankyou sincerely,

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
