  • 1. Numbering printed copies of single page documeny
    I am trying to print multiple copies of a single page document and show a unique incrementing number in the footer (to indicate how many copies of the document has been printed) Can anyone tell me how to do this please.
  • 2. Creating template with font not recognised by other PC's
    Hi, hope someone can help me I need to create a template with Gill Sans as a font. Problem is, the people I want to use the template, do not have Gill Sans loaded on their PC's. So all unrecognised font automatically turns to their default font (Arial) Is there some way I can create this template with the Gill Sans font, and have it appear (and print) as Gill Sans. The text that they input onto the template can remain as Arial, it's just the text I create on the template I want as Gill Sans Someone suggested maybe as a graphic???? ( I don't know how to do this) But the users of the template still need to be able to type on the template Thank yo Sky
  • 3. Using Write Anywhere
    Its possible because the text is still in "Plain Text" when you copy it into Word, try saving the file in RTF or a Word document file then continue typing, Word should ask if you would like update the text to be used with Word 97 or later.

  • 4. Tracked Changed in Word XP
    I want to be able to make tracked changes a permanent part of my document(by not accepting or rejecting anything) and leaving all the underlining and bracketing. I also want to change the color of the tracked changes to black. Is there a way to do this or it is just a matter of leaving the document in the view: ORIGINAL SHOWING MARKUP? Thank you.
  • 5. Auto Text suddenly started to work. Never mind for now.
    Don't know what happened, but as soon as I left Word and had to go back to do another letter, the auto text began to work for me. Weird. Thanks for listening anyway. I'm sure I'll be back.

Text contained in a text box shows on screen but doesn't print

Suddenly, any text contained within text boxes doesn't print out although it 
shows up on the screen.

Any ideas?

Not sure if it's a problem within Word or the printer settings.

Make sure that "Drawing objects" is checked on the Print tab of Tools |
Options.

My "drawing objects" item on the Print tab of Tools|Options is checked.  I 
have a page in which photos, scans, and text are arranged in thir{*filter*} 
texboxes, and nothing else outside the boxes is on the page.  All appear as 
intended in "Print Preview" but in printing, only elevent text box contents 
print - two are missing, one of text only, the other a scan of a photograph.  
Three other scans of photos do print, as do four other boxes of text and four 
boxes of digital photos.

It may be a print spooling issue (document going to the printer before the
spool file is complete). Try disabling background printing (Tools | Options
| Print). If that doesn't help, go into the printer Properties and rummage
around until you find an option to print directly to the printer (without
spooling).

Thank you - unchecking background printing in Tools|Options|Print worked 
instantly!  But it might help for the future to look a little better into a 
wrinkle, which is that I tried copying the page of text boxes into a new doc, 
in which I deleted all but the two of the original thir{*filter*} that didn't 
print.  Then I tried printing just that new doc with its two (remaining) text 
boxes - and the printer put out blank pages.  Can THAT also be a spooling 
problem (background printing was enabled)?

ossibly a corruption issue. Or it could be that there was some peculiarity
about the text box (tight spacing, for example) that made the printer choke
on it.

hank you again. I appreciate your excellent advice and helpful orientations
- and so quickly! I will look more closely into how I place insertion points
of text boxes to try to avoid piling their placement processes too tightly
together.

was actually thinking of tight spacing inside a text box, but, now that
you mention it, I remember looking at a document that had a text box that
wasn't printing, and the issue with that one actually was one of tight
spacing between text boxes. It could be cured by changing some setting in
the Advanced Layout IIRC--perhaps "Allow overlap"?

Hi Suzanne - Turning on "Drawing objects" was the answer. I certainly am glad 
I found your input. 

 My question is why did it not have to be "on" for the preceeding two years 
for text boxes to print.  I have been using a "boiler plate" letter in my 
business for the past two years that contained text boxes and they printed 
perfectly well.  I have Microsoft Updated set on automatic.  Could it be that 
a recent update unintentionally caused the problem  ????

As they say, "go figure".

Something turned it off, apparently. Either that, or your letter used to use
frames or inline text or tables instead of text boxes.

1.Text box printing but not showing up on screen

I have a document that I use as a template that has a text box in it.  The 
text box has always shown up both on screen and when I print it.  Today the 
text box has stopped showing up on the screen, but shows up when I print (or 
when I make the document into a pdf).  

I really need to delete the text box, so I need for it to show up on screen.

I am using Office 2007, but the original document was created in an earlier 
version (I don't remember which, 2003 maybe).  Any suggestions are 
appreciated!

2.text box I can't see on screen shows up when I print

I have a small text box with a number in it that is 
floating around on a 2-column page of text.  It's 
invisible on screen, I can't click on it though I'm 
clicking exactly where it prints -- it only shows up when 
I print. Must be an issue with layers -- how do I make it 
visible on screen so I can delete?  Thanks in advance.
