I finished my screenplay. It was written in Microsoft Word. I followed the margins and tabs required for a screenplay.
Then, I emailed it to myself so I could download it and print it at my mom's house. She has a laser printer.
So, I do a print preview, and it's all messed up. I had to drop the margins to practically zero to get one page of writing to fit onto one page. When I print it out, the type goes all the way to the top and bottom, and both sides. It's almost like it's "zoomed" or something.
Obviously, I can't hand it to someone in the business looking like this. And I don't want to have to go through the whole thing, resetting margins and page breaks so that it comes out right on her printer.
One of them is wrong. Anyone come across something like this before, and do you have a solution?
I considered putting it on a jump drive and taking it to Staples or Kinko's, but I don't want to pay for 100 pages of printing and find out the margins were still messed up.
