  5. In the Print dialog box, adjust the horizontal and vertical alignments in the Alignment (Inches) section according to the following scenarios:
    • If the form prints too high, enter a positive vertical adjustment (.25 equals one line).
    • If the form prints too low, enter a negative vertical adjustment (-.25 equals one line).
    • If the form prints too far to the right, enter a negative horizontal adjustment.
    • If the form prints too far to the left, enter a positive horizontal adjustment.
