Topic: different margins in different printers?
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 89837

I have an application that uses xsl to convert xml contents to a ps file. Options are available for this ps file to be auto-printed directly to the printer or onto Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 to be viewed. The margins for the document to be printed/viewed has been coded in the xsl.

With the former option, if auto-printed, the margin set is followed as according to code.

However, if I chose to View it on Adobe before sending to print with Adobe's print function, I can see that the margins are off (left margin seems to have increased and sometimes the right side of the document is truncated, depending on printers).

Is there anyway I can resolve this issue? There does not seem to be any options for me to change the margin in the "Page Setup" option of Adobe.... Also, sometimes if the Abobe is embedded onto IE, I cannot even access the "File" menu.. Thanks for any reply!!
