Word Viewer is only for viewing and printing Word documents. To edit a document, you must use Microsoft Word.
Method 1: Ignore the Error MessageIgnore the error by clicking the Continue button.
The document will be printed, but there is a danger that some of the text may be truncated in the printed version.
Method 2: Open the Document for Editing in WordOpen the document in Microsoft Word and adjust the margins so that the error does not occur.
In Word Viewer 97-2000, on the File menu, click Open For Editing. This starts Microsoft Word, loads the document, and allows you to make changes.
If you set your document margins closer to the edge of the paper than your printer is capable of printing, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Word Viewer return a warning message for each copy you send to the printer.
Most laser printers, such as the Hewlett-Packard (HP) LaserJet, cannot print closer to any edge of the paper than 0.25 inch. Some laser printers, such as the HP LaserJet Series II, require 0.5-inch margins. DeskJet printers generally cannot print closer to the bottom edge than .67 inch. Most PostScript and dot-matrix printers have their own internal printer driver setting for margins.
The unprintable region is determined by the printer that is currently being used. To correct the margins that are set to close to the edge of the paper, open the document in Microsoft Word and follow these steps:
- Make sure that you are using the same printer driver that gave you the error in Microsoft Word Viewer.
- In Word, on the File menu, click
- Click OK.
You receive a warning dialog box about the unprintable regions.
- Click the Fix button.
- Save and close the document.
