Printing Problems?

Some suggestions if you're having trouble getting the tape measure to print properly:

  1. Check your margins. The top, bottom, left and right margins each can be set to no more than 0.25 inches.
  2. Check your printer settings. If you have options like Shrink to Fit or Fit to Pageenabled, your inches may be something less than the real article. Make sure all shrinkage and magnification options are turned off, and the printer prints the page as it receives it, without re-sizing.
