Hi Goody2Shoes6, what a great nickname!

If the boxes are a rectangle for every letter, try changing the font, especially if the printer is an old model and the font is recent, if it does it for every font, type up a letter (or type =rand(3) in word and it will put some blurb up for you) then press the Alt key at same time Print Scrn key. Then open paint and go to edit menu / paste. go File Print preferences and set the page to 1 by 1 pages, File / Print preview, if good Print.

The printer should print it, as it is taking it as a picture file, if that same font won't print straight from word (and gives you little squares) it means the printer doesn't have that font listed in it's memory

If it is the case, buy a new printer, or use an older font that works.

:-)

Printing Sections in Microsoft Word


Printing Word Documents with Multiple Sections You have a document with multiple sections. When you try to print specific pages, you get either one single page, or the whole document. What you don’t get is the two separate pages you need.

First, take note of which section has the first page you want to print, and in which section the second page resides.

You need to print Page 2 of Section 1 and Page 1 of Section two.
In this particular case, the command is the usual: File | Print:


The difference in this case is how you specify the pages to be printed. In the Pages dialog box, type P2S1, P1S2 and then click OK. The comma “,” separating the two pages indicates two separate pages. The result will print Page 2 of Section 1 and Page 1 of Section 2.

If, however, you wanted to print from Page 2 of Section 1 through and including Page 1 of Section 2, the command would be P2S1-P1S2. The dash "-" indicates a range of pages, which results in printing from Page 2 of Section 1 through and including Page 1 of Section 2.

I created a document in Word 2007 and saved it on a flash drive. I brought it up in word 2010 to make some changes and print it out. When I went to print it it printed only one letter per line in th


If you are able to create and print new documents in Word 2010 then I would not do anything to the Word 2010 installation. However, if the problem is with printing only then it might be best to check of the printer driver installed on the Word 2010 computer is working ok. Also try a Print Preview before you print to see how it looks on the PC screen.
Otherwise it may be simply a compatibility issue of the document created in Word 2007. Open it in Word 2010 and save as a new file. Then open the new file and do a Print preview before printing.

No content prints on document when word document is sent to the printer


Is the problem only with Microsoft Word? If so you might have selected something else in the "Print What" box in the "Print" dialog box instead of "Document". See the below screenshot and make sure that the "Document" is selected. The Print dialog box will come up when you click the "Print" sub-menu from the "File" menu, i.e. click "File" and select "Print".

If this doesn't help, reinstall the printers drivers/softwares. That should fix your problem.
If the problem isn't only with Microsoft Word Documents, then there might be other problems with your printer, it could be cartridge/s, ink, drivers, etc..
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Mismatch paper size error


Click on Print, then Properties, then features.
About half way down there is a drop down box under sizing options.
Click on custom
Create a name, and put your width and height in.
Click Save and then OK
Completely X out of the print options.
Then Click
File, print
on the bottom of that screen there should be a scale to paper size drop down box. Scroll to the bottom and your saved name and dimensions should be there.

You will have to setup each individual sized template ones and then just scale to fit each time. Hope this helps

Printer problem


Well ... it sounds like you are printing from Micro$oft Word (or similar) and have the print options set to print the document properties.

If using MS Word, select "OPTIONS" from the TOOLS menu. click the 'Print' tab and unselect 'Document Properties' in the include with document section.

Cheers!
