    I received a template for a legal document and made some minor adjustments and want to print it out now in Word 2007.
    I normally know my way around in word but I am stumped now. In view/layout the document looks fine with the pages "normally filled" but when I print them, everything is scrunched into the top 60% of the page. It is as though I am printing for a different format other than A4. I am not sure where to modify this. I checked in the print properties but Paper Quality is set as A4 and Effects I tried both Actual Size and A4 Print to size and just A4. Is there anyway I can print my document so that it looks halfway normal?

    A legal document is 8.5" x 14" not A4. You need to change your selection when printing in print properties from A4 to the legal size.

    Thank you cookielegal - did not know that as I always use A4 paper and don't deal with legal docs. That certainly solved the issue.
