Do not Print text box



  • 1. Loss of view for CellArt and Inserted Pictures
    I have a document in which I use dozens of cellart and inserted screen captures for visual reference. I don't know what I did, but suddenly I can no long see the content of the cells or pictures. All I get is a frame object which shows as blank. I've looked everywhere for some kind of option that may be been set off but with no joy. I'm stumed. The artwork is still there; I can see it when I print preview a page. Could someone please tell me what is going on and how to make it go away??
  • 2. How do I keep my Heading 1 graphic out of my TOC?
    I'm using Word 2003, and I want the beginning of each of my chapters (Heading 1) to have an obvious visual reference when the reader scans through the book. I placed a graphic in line with the text on the same line as Heading 1 and tabbed it to the right margin. It looks great - just what I want. Problem - it comes in with the TOC. I can take them out, but I need to leave this document for others and want them to be able to re-run a TOC without having to do that. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks! Mary Lee

Hello   This is for Word 2002  -Is there a way not to print a text box - 
maybe a VBA code so that text boxes in the document do not print. 
I had inserted comments but was told not to use comments but a text box

Tools - Options - Print, remove the check next to Drawing Objects (I think 
it was still called this in Word 2002).

1.Word 2000 - Printing Text Boxes, text is not printing

I have a document that has a header page that is blank followed by 3 pages 
of data that contain text boxes. The 3 pages are repeated each time for a 
different person. My software populates data into these text boxes. 

When this document is produced and I open it, it looks fine (it is saved as 
.rtf). But when I print it, the first few pages of data are blank with empty 
text boxes. The text that was in the text boxes has dissapeared. 
But, the same 3 pages that are repeated, at the end of my document for one 
person print fine. 

I tried saving the document as .doc but this made no difference. I have also 
entered in tools->options that the drawing options is ticked under the print 

I am using Word 2000 and a colleague is using 2002 and we both have the same 
issue printing the same document. However, another colleague using Word 2003 
can print it fine. 

It is really strange. I can send the document to you. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
Many thanks

2.inserting text box - text does not move from under text box

3.text inside a text box is not printing properly

I am using microsoft word in microsoft office xp professional. I have always 
been able to print documents perfectly. However, when I print a document now, 
the text prints out perfectly except for any text inside a text box. Text 
inside text boxes appears to be 'double-focused' or looks as if it has been 
'smudged'. I've been communicating with the printer manufacturer (HP) and 
tried all the options they suggested such as inserting new cartridges, 
cleaning cartridges, re-setting default printer, etc. They have concluded 
that the printer is working fine, and that the problem stems from the 
specific application i am printing from (i.e. microsoft word). Any 
suggestions as to why only text inside a text box is not printing properly?

4.Text Boxes not showing text inside on print Word 2002

In Word 2002 (XP) we are using rtf files and using text boxes inside of these 
files. In editing mode, the text positioned inside the text box looks fine, 
but when we print or print preview no text shows up in any of the text boxes. 
Can anyone help?

5.Text box text not printing

I have a document with many overlapping text boxes, each of which is filled 
with a semi-transparent colour.  

In print preview, the colours and text all display.

However, on printing the document, the text is not printed for all of the 
text boxes.  It is for some of them.  (and always the same ones)

The colours always print.

Any ideas?  (I do have print drawing objects switched on)
