Setting Paper, Numbering, and Margin Options


Like all the Office applications, printing in Project lets you select the paper size, the way the pages of your report will be numbered, and the way Project will set margins on your pages. Paper size and margins directly affect how much data is put on each page. Generally speaking, the larger the paper and the smaller the margins, the more readable your reports will be. This is particularly true of printed views such as Gantt charts . Page numbering is important in printed reports or views with many pages. Without numbers , it can be difficult for users to refer each other to specific places in the report.

For Your Information

Working with Margins

Margins are another way to fit more data onto a page. When setting these, be mindful that some printers have a minimum margin on some sides of the page. Also be aware that many people bind printed reports, and this binding requires more space on the "long edge" of the page.
