Printing marginally better

Excel 2007 new feature

By Neale Blackwood

Excel 2007 has a new button that allows you to amend your margins quickly. On the Page Layout Ribbon in the Page Setup section there is a Margin button. This has a drop down selection with the some standard settings and it remembers your last custom margin setting.

This allows you to create one custom set of margins and have that available for future use. Excel remembers this custom setting even after closing and re-opening Excel. Typically this could be used to create zero left and right margins in a landscape print.

There is no equivalent for Excel 2003.
