1. Click the Margins tab, which is shown in Figure 16-15.
As you modify margin settings, the preview shows you where they will
appear on your page.
2. Use the arrows to set the Top, Bottom, Left, and Right margins.
Click the up arrow for a wider margin and the down arrow for a narrower
3. If you want a border representing the margin, use the Borders
Here you can choose to print a border on Every Page, on only Outer
Pages (prints a border on the first and last pages only; available only
when printing a Network Diagram view), or None.

to be cut off because printers can only print so close to the edge of a page.

Page Setup dialog box to set and preview header (top) and footer (bottom)
