Important HTML Printing Information for Users of Internet Explorer


Default margin settings for IE6, and perhaps other versions, may cause a page overflow when you print muti-page jobs like Rosters and Transported Student Forms. This can result in a second page being printed containing only one (or a few) line(s). Obviously this is a tremendous waste of paper on large print jobs. To change the print settings, go to Page Setup... in the File menu of Internet Explorer and make sure the top and bottom margins are set to no more than .5 inches, and also make sure there is no header or footer being printed (clear those fields). It is also important that you don't change the default print setting of "portrait" orientation to "landscape." HTML documents are designed to be viewed in "portrait" orientation (so that little or no L/R scrolling is required) and they print the same way they display. ***Do not change the print setting to "landscape" orientation- that will cause a page overflow on this form.*** After you make print settings changes, you may check the changes using Print Preview... (File menu) *before* you print anything. If there is a page overflow, it will show on the second page. On some browsers you may have to make the top and bottom margins even smaller than .5 inches. This is caused by variability in displaying and printing HTML documents due to differences in installed fonts and other computer-specific factors, so you may have to experiment to get it to print properly on your system. The print settings you specify will remain in place until you change them again, so you should only have to do this once.

For more information about printing HTLM documents and using print preview in Internet Explorer, go to the Microsoft Support web page.
