SMB Printing


Hello,

I'm using a networked SMB printer and I'm curious if anyone knows if it's possible when printing from Mozilla to include the date on the hardcopy? With Internet Explorer, it automatically puts the date on the print job. Any ideas? Thanks.

In Mozilla, File->Page Setup, click on 'Margins & Header/Footer' tab. Under 'Headers & Footers', you can have the date in six places around the page if you want. At least, this is true for Mozilla 1.4b. If you have an older version and can't do this, you can download the final Mozilla 1.4 now.

Hi

Thanks for the reply. I've tried a number of ways to include a footer and for some reason, it is not printing on the hard copy even though it is on the print preview screen. I don't know why I can't get the footer to print.

You're probably trying to print too low on the page, out of the printable area that your printer is capable of. Some inkjets, for example, can't print in the bottom 15-20 mm (1/2 - 3/4 in) of the page. Try setting the bottom page margin at 25 mm (1 in) and see how you go. You could also get the 'printable area' specs from the printer's manual. If you don't have a hardcopy manual, most printer manufacturers have softcopies available on their websites.

Thanks, I tried all of that and actually went into the printer settings and tried that way. Nothing made any difference. Weird, huh?

Try this:

File -> Print... ->Properties...

In the box "Gap from edge of paper to Margin (inches)"

Change the value "Bottom" from 0.04 to 0.3 or 0.4.

that Should work
