kpdf printing margins


Hi Everyone,

I've just got into ebooks. I have downloaded some as pdf files. I printed the first one and it had a very large margin, seemed like an absolute waste of paper.

So when I printed the second one I did,
file: print: properties

I changed to landscape and print 2 pages per page. On the margin tab all the margins are set to 0. However, it printed the ebook and it did save paper, (as there were two pages per page) but it printed again with very large margins.

Is there a way to decrease the margins, so there are more larger words per page?

Or do I need to copy the ebook into Open Office? and play with it there?

I am looking for an electronic reader, but I am going to post that somewhere else.

Hope someone can help.

Regards

I think, it depends on the original pdf design.
Sometimes it not even possible to get a larger
print using A3 paper size (12 x 18 inches)

I did a lot of pdf print out last year, and
also used "Adobe Reader" for some, and for
a few I had to print with winXP, also
"Adobe Reader" with sometimes quite
different results.

(Don't like windows, only use it for this
task half an hour per year)

Regards

Ah! Sounds like I'm stuck with it then, anyway I am trying to find a cheap electronic reader, but that is a different thread.

Thank you.
