The Margins tab
This tab contains settings for Braille print margins and other items. These settings can only be stored in the open document, or in the chosen configuration profile, i.e. maintained as settings for any uploaded document.
Braille margins are an integral part of characters per line and lines per page. The margins then subtract cells to the total size of the braille sheet. For example, if you set 30 lines per page, 1 top margin cell, and 2 bottom margin cells, the page text is placed on 27 lines.
Each printer has its own margin settings internally. With Biblos it is always advisable to reset every margin set directly in the printer, because the margins will be used directly via software.
- Top margin: box with the braille lines of the upper margin;
- Bottom margin: box with the braille lines of the bottom margin;
- Left Margin: Braille cell box in the left margin;
- Right margin: box with the braille cells of the right margin;
- Swap horizontal margins on even pages: If activated, this box in the even pages exchanges the left and right margins. This option is useful for proper sheet binding space;
- Folding lines: This is where you set empty lines for folding the sheet. If this box is left at 0, no empty lines of folding are added. If you value it with a higher number, lines are left empty from the selected position;
- Folding position: box from which you choose the position from which the empty lines of folding start.
A special note should be reserved for the left and right margins. In the preparation of some elements, these margins can be used to house braille cells that indicate the presence of elements (poems, tables, graphs, bookmarks, etc.).
