    When Print - result large left margin (Word 2002 /XP SP3)

    Hello

    I have a Word document Paper Size Letter 81/2.

    When working in Word it appears the correct size. When I print the result is a large left hand side margin (pls see attachment).
    Its just on this Word doc. Gutter margin is not turned on.

    Do you think this is a Word setting? or a Printer setting?
    Any ideas?

    It's space for balloons - apparently your document contains remarks or tracked changes. To get rid of the wide margin:
    Select Tools | Options...
    Activate the Track Changes tab.
    Clear the check box "Use balloons..."
    Click OK.

    Thank you Hans

    This setting and View is turned off. Also if the Balloon View was turned on, the balloons would have printed in the left margin.
    So Im a bit stumped. <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>

    Could you attach a small sample document exhibiting this problem? Replace sensitive contents with dummy text.

    Hi Hans

    I don't mind sending you a sample of the document. However the doc prints OK on my pc. But doesnt print correctly on another pc. It seems to be a local issue and not file related.

    Many thanks Hans
