The main cause of this issue is the use of a table element with a very wide width. This often occurs when pasting the offer letter content from Word into the offer letter template.

To check this:

  1. Navigate to Manage Offer Letter Templates, and edit the relevant template.
  2. Click on the 'Source' button found on the right of the Body section. This shows the source HTML of the offer letter.
  3. Review the HTML and search for the table element. When found, check the width of the table. If the width of the table is greater than "650", then this is the cause of the issue.



To resolve the issue, change the value of the table width to "650" or less. The margins will then return to normal.

Example of an offer letter with a width of "650":
