When I print a Draw document, the drawings near the top or bottom page borders are not printed properly. How can I overcome this problem?


You have probably set the margins of the Draw document page too near the print area borders of your printer. You have to:

  1. Check your printer manual to find out the size of your printer's print area.
  2. Select Format > Page from the menu bar.
  3. In the Page tab of the Page Setup window, change the top and botton margins to the size you have found in your printer manual. If you do not have it anymore, try a value higher than 2.5 cm (1 inch). It works with many printers.
  4. Click the OK button.

Now, you can edit your drawing, making sure that every object is within the new page margins.
