Annoying feature on onenote auto paper size.

Hi, I'm a grad student with a tablet and I love to take notes using onenote in portrait orientation (I spin my tablet screen around to take notes). I use the auto paper size so that it automatically adds space below as you take notes. 

One thing that I've always found annoying (I had Onenote 2007 now I'm using 2010) is that if you write too close to the edge it also adds room on the right margin. You have to be careful because during a long class your page will get too wide and when you go to print you'll have tiny little notes! Also, you have to start using your mouse to start negotiating your way around your wide notes.

Is there anyway to fix the right margin in auto paper size mode so it won't do this? Like an option maybe? I can't find a way.  Thanks!
It sounds like you want "infinite page height but a fixed page width", right?
I'm sorry to say this is not possible.  I'll add it as a suggestion to our list of ideas, though.
The closest you can come to this is to set a Custom size and set the width to the desired width for your tablet and then the height to the maximum (22 inches, or the equivalent on your system).
