In Microsoft Word for Mac, when you open and then print a text file, the following error message appears:
When you look at the margin settings, you find that the left and right margins are set to 0.25" (or 0.63 cm).
The margins of section 1 are set outside the printable area of the page. Do you want to continue?
NOTE: To view the margin settings, click Document on the Format menu, and then click the Margins tab.
To work around this problem, use one of the following methods:
Method 1: Adjust the Font Size and the Page Margins to Maintain 80 Characters per Line
Method 2: Click "Ignore" When the Error Message AppearsWhen you print a text file, and the error message appears, click Ignore . This may allow the file to print without any problems, because 0.25" is within the printable area of most printers. However, some printers may not print all of the text, because the text may be outside of the printable area.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Word for Mac.
