    Am using Word 2000 and want to permanently change the default 24 pt margin setting for page borders to 31 pt, to avoid the continual "out of printable area" problem with the HP colour inkjet printer we're using.

    Have tried opening normal.dot, changing settings to 31 pts and saving (using >Format >Borders and Shading >Page Border >Options), but it always reverts to 24 pt.

    It is getting kind of frustrating having to continually change this for every new document we create.

    Any thoughts?

    Create another template?
    Or, create a macro that does it for you? You can likely record that one...
    Need help?

    I really need to change the normal.dot template so that it is invisible to many of our less word proficient users, wouldn't really want them to be worrying about using a macro either.
    Thanks anyway.

    Any other suggestions out there?

    Worry about using a macro?
    There's no worry.
    They just hit a button you put on the toolbar.
    I'm thinking you're not going to find any other way around this.
