Description Matěj Cepl 2016-01-25 15:36:08 EST
Description of problem:
In gedit 2.24.2 (Ubuntu 8.10), the margins of a printed document does not seems to be configurable. The left margin is very small - about 1 cm.

While such small margins maximizes the printable text on a page, the left margin is too small to punch holes in the sheet using a paper hole punch - holes are punched in the text.

See attached file, a print-out of the "Thin clients" Wikipedia page, copied from a Web browser and pasted in gedit for printing. Having configurable margins could enable the user to avoid such problems.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. print a text file with gedit
2. too small margins on printout

Actual results:
see attached PDF

Expected results:
something like 1" margins (or 65 chars / line)
