Printing Calendar

How do you get the ward and stake calendar to print full size on landscape? There is a lot of margin on the bottom.

The calendar is formatted to simply take up the space needed for the events. If you don't have a lot of events that use a lot of text, then each week of the calendar won't take up a lot of vertical space. This month is particularly short vertically, because it is a month of only 4 weeks, each of which start on Sunday, so the calendar only takes four rows.

So the calendar is already printing in full size, but there's just not enough text to fill up the page.

However, depending on your browser, you might be able to do some scaling:
  • In Internet Explorer, go into Print Preview and change the Shrink to Fit setting to some scaling percentage
  • In Firefox, go to Page Setup, uncheck "Shrink to fit page width" and then specify a scaling percentage.

By playing with those percentages, you can make the calendar take up more of the page.

Make sure you are using the least amount of margin you can live with in your web browser. For IE the default margin size is 0.75 inches. You can adjust this to meet your printers capabilities. Which brings up another issue. Your printer has border requirements that limit the smallest size available. The cheaper printers are notorious for requiring large borders for printing. My wife's ten year old printer, while still quite functional for most print jobs, requires a large 0.55 inch bottom margin.
