Workstation Customizing Object (WSCST) will allow you to set custom margins on any device.

As far as change changing the margins for a specific printer file, I have never tried that, but seems like once you have a WSCST you can use it with the parameter WSCST(yourwscst) for OVRPRTF, CHGPRTF and CRTPRTF.

In the past, I've created different Printer Devices with different WSCST objects, but pointing to the same physical printer device.

Subject: printer differences - *AFPDS margins

I created an *AFPDS external printer file with BOX and LINE commands which fall perfectly on an HP printer attached to Iseries.

On an older IBM Infoprint 1332 printer, the top and left margin is ¼" too large, making the box surrounding the page to be off center (to the south-east).

Is it possible that the IBM Infoprint 1332 printer has a margin that it adds to any print file arriving?

Is this changeable for my pgms printer file or globally for that specific printer?

I would like to avoid programming different margins specifically for this printer if possible.
