    I'm having a slight problem with printing out one of my templates for my Tsunami quilt (I am so behind on it). One of my triangle pieces isn't being fully printed out...its a larger piece so it has to be printed on two pages...the problem is that any part that's in this invisable 1/4"-1/2" border along the edge of the paper doesn't get printed out. Is there any way to fix this?

    I have never used that program before, but it sounds like you need to reset your page margin to a smaller size. It should be under "Page Setup" in your "File" menu. Just a thought. I hope you get it figured out.

    I would go the simple route, take a ruler after it's printed and place it along the edge of the line and draw the line to the end of the paper. That should work out perfect for you.

    If I remember correctly, you print it out, then cut the edges to match up, tape it and you have one template. I don't use the templates that much, but if you go to their website and get into the forum you should be able to post your question there, and they are great about answering.

    If you go into the menu when you have the image on the screen, you can change the position of each template on the page, this is useful for avoiding paper wastage as the original layout of the templates doesn't always mean the most economical....get your manual out and check to see how I mean!! You can clik and drag if I remember correctly!!

    Try looking through your printing preferences for printing without borders, and look to see if your print as image (I think it is called) box is checked too.

    I sort of got it to work. I printed it in landscape. Before I was missing a corner and where the two pieces of the template connect were in the margin...now I'm just missing a corner (mostly the seam allowance). There was an option to print out photos without the border, but it didn't have an option for letter sized paper.

    I think if you moved your margins out as far as they will go should help you some.
