    Hi,
    When I am working on, or print-previewing my documents on Word, they look normal. Once I go to print, they show up with a large blank area at the top (maybe 1 & a half inches or so). I checked my "header" and "margin" settings, but they seem to be normal... it's just the printed document that is off, the document looks fine when I'm viewing it on the computer. Could this be a problem with my printing settings or other in Word, or is it a printer problem instead?
    Thanks alot!

    Is it possible you have the printer setup somehow set to an odd paper size? I sometimes have issues like that when I try to print a document that was created in the UK.

    THANK YOU! That is exactly it. It was set to "letter" instead of "legal" size paper... I hadn't changed it for a particular document, but may have clicked it accidently while trying to adjust something else... thank you :)
