Setting Page Margins

In Print View, every sheet’s page has margins (blank space between the sheet’s edge
and the edges of the paper). These margins are indicated onscreen by light gray lines,
visible when you use layout view.

To set the page margins for a sheet:


Select the sheet in the Sheets pane.


Click View in the toolbar and choose Show Print View, and then click View in the

toolbar and choose Show Layout.


Click Inspector in the toolbar, and then click the Sheet inspector button.


To set the distance between the layout margins and the left, right, top, and bottom

sides of a page, enter values in the Left, Right, Top, and Bottom fields.


To set the distance between a header or a footer and the top or bottom edge of the

page, enter values in the Header and Footer fields.

To print the spreadsheet using the largest printing area possible with any printer you
use, select Use Printer Margins. Any margin settings specified in the Sheet inspector
are ignored when you print.
