Specifying page margins
You can specify different margins for each layout. If you don't specify margins, FileMaker Pro uses the printer's default margins, which might vary with different printers or different printer drivers. You should specify page margins if you're printing a layout where exact spacing is important, like labels or a preprinted form.
To specify page margins:
Choose File menu > Print Setup (Windows), or File menu > Page Setup (OS X), confirm the printer and paper settings, then click OK.
In Preview mode, you can also click Print Setup (Windows) or Page Setup (OS X) in the status toolbar.
For more information, see the documentation that came with your computer and printer.
In Layout mode, click Layout Setup Layout Setup button in the layout bar.
You can also click the name of the layout’s current table.
Select Fixed page margins, and type values for the margins.
If you specify a margin that is narrower than your current printer supports, FileMaker Pro displays a warning dialog box.
If you want the left and right margins to alternate (the inside margin appears on the left side for the first page, on the right side for the second page, and so on), select Facing pages.
For more information, see Previewing data on a layout.
If you’re using the Print in <n> columns option and you later specify page margins, the columns resize to fit within the new margins. For more information, see Setting up to print records in columns.
