Remarks

Physical margin/Logical margin

Each printer includes a physical margin where no print is allowed. ..BottomMargin, ..RightMargin, ..LeftMargin and ..TopMargin are used to define the "logical" print margins.
  • If the physical margin is greater than the logical margin: The logical margin is ignored. The report will be compressed in order to be printed on a single page. To prevent report compression, select "Print the report as it is" in the report description window ("Options" tab).
  • If the physical margin is less than the logical margin: The logical margin is taken into account. The physical margin is ignored.
iEndPrinting cancels the margins.
