HP Designjet T1100 and T1120 MFP Series Products - Set Output Margins

Set output margins
Set regular margins and additional Outer margins. For both types you can define values for top, bottom, left, right.
  note:
Margins are irrelevant for scan-to-file jobs. All margin values will automatically be set to zero when working from the Scan tab.
Margins are created within the selected scan area and thus replace edges of the image itself with white border of the breadth defined by the Margins values. ("cropping" the image).
The Margins values are deducted from the set output size and thus the intended final copy size is retained.
With scaling, the actual margin values are applied to the printed result while the margin's cropping effect (breadth of cropping edges) on the scan area is adjusted according to the relation between the input size and output size (scaling value).
Without scaling (1:1 copying), the actual margin values are applied to the printed result and are equal to the breadth of the edges that crop the scan area.
The Outer margins option lets you add additional margins to the scan area, thus adding white border to the edges of the copy while leaving the scan area intact. The final copy size is thus extended in relation to the set output size.
The examples describe actual cases when applying margins and outer margins.
You can use Margins together with Outer margins to crop off unwanted edges or original low quality margins and add new or additional white margins to the end result.
Set margins
Margins are for applying white border to the edges of the copy. The Margins replace edges of the image itself (scan area) with white border.
  1. Select the Setup tab. Setup tab
  2. In the Setup dialog, press the Margins button. The Margins dialog is displayed:Margins dialog
  3. Set the Top, Bottom, Left and Right margins in the Margins dialog.
  4. Use the Link option if you want equal margins all around the image. With the Link option checked, you only have to enter the margin value in one of the four fields.
  5. Most printers cannot start printing at the very edges of the paper and thus enforce a margin on your output. You can choose to account for this enforced margin by enabling the Clip contents by printer's margins option.
  6. Check the Print Paper Border option to get a thin black line around the output size boundaries. With wide format printing on large printer rolls, this option will give you a clear cutting line so you end with precisely the output size you defined.
  7. The breadth of the Paper Frame displayed in the Preview window will reflect your margin settings in relation to the Output size while also accounting for the input size (scan area) so you can see precisely how they will crop the input image. Press the Preview button to load a preview with visible margins defined by your settings. If you set margins to zero, then a thin frame will still outline your current capture area in the Preview window.
Use Outer margins
Outer Margins are for adding white border to the edges of the copy while leaving the scan area intact.
  1. Select the Setup tab. Setup tab
  2. In the Setup dialog, press the Margins button. The Margins dialog is displayed:Margins dialog
  3. Press the Outer Margins button.
  4. Set the Top, Bottom, Left and Right margins in the Outer Margin dialog.
  5. Use the Link option if you want equal outer margins all around the image. With the Link option checked, you only have to enter the outer margin value in one of the four fields..
  6. Most printers cannot start printing at the very edges of the paper and thus enforce a margin on your output. You can choose to account for this enforced margin by enabling the Margin dialog's Clip contents by printer's margins option.
  7. Check the Print Paper Border option to get a thin black line around the new output size boundaries. With wide format printing on large printer rolls, this option will give you a clear cutting line so you end with precisely the output size you defined.
Examples of Margins and Outer Margins
Example 1
  • The Input size is: 10x10 inches.
  • The Output size is 10x10 inches (no scaling).
  • Margins are set at: 1 inch at all edges.
  • Outer Margins are set at 0 inches at all edges.
  • Result: Total size 10x10 inches, Scanned area 8x8 inches, 1 inch white border at all edges
  • Explanation: The margin of 1 inch is deducted from the scan area at all edges (all around) creating the 8x8 inches scan area. The total size is equal to the output size (and input size as there is no scaling) because white space border through the Margins setting is deducted from the output size and none is added on.
Example 2
  • The Input size is: 10x10 inches.
  • The Output size is 10x10 inches (no scaling)
  • Margins are set at: 0 inches at all edges.
  • Outer Margins are set at 1 inch at all edges.
  • Result: Total size 12x12 inches, Scanned area 10x10 inches, 1 inch white border at all edges.
  • Explanation: Margin is set to 0 inches so nothing is deducted from the scan area and the 10x10 inches scan area remains intact. The total size is 12x12 inches because the Outer margin is set to 1 inch and thus 1 inch of white space border is added to the output size at all edges (all around).
Example 3
  • The Input size is: 10x10 inches.
  • The Output size is 10x10 inches (no scaling)
  • Margins are set at 1 inch at all edges.
  • Outer Margins are set at 1 inch at all edges.
  • Result: Total size 12x12 inches, Scanned area 8x8 inches, 2 inches white border at all edges.
  • Explanation: The margin of 1 inch is deducted from the scan area at all edges creating the 8x8 inches scan area. The outer margin of 1 inch is added to this white space giving a total of 2 inches white border. The added Outer margin (and only the outer margin) of 1 inch expands the total output size by 1inches around all the edges totaling to the 12x12 inches output result.
Example 4
  • The input size is: 10x10 inches.
  • The output size is 20x20 inches (2 x scaling).
  • Margins are set at 1 inch at all edges.
  • Outer Margins are set at 1 inch at all edges.
  • Result: Total size 22x22 inches, Scanned area 9x9 inches, 2 inches white border at all edges.
  • Explanation: Example 4 shows margin value application on the scan area (input) with scaling, i.e., when the output size is larger than the input size. As with the previous examples, the margin's value of 1 inch is still deducted from the output size and this 1inches white space plus 1inches outer margin will be output on the printer totaling to a 2 inches wide white border. However, because of scaling, the 1inches margin that should be taken within the scan area during input is automatically reduced relatively (in this case by half since it's a 1:2 relation) so that only ½ inches is deducted from the scan area at all edges during input. In this way, cropping of the scan area is logically adjusted to fit the Margin that was defined for the enlarged end result and match normal intentions.
