Hello everyone,

I usually use Microsoft Word XP professional (on my laptop) to do my paper work and when I finish everything I copy my files to my desktop computer (bigger screen) so I can review the paper for the last time and print it. My problem occurred when my printer started printing something completely different from the page that appeared on my screen. It's the same page but the first line would start for example at 2 cm from the top of the page, the footnotes would be in different order like this: 1, 4, 2 , 5, 3. I realized that the Print layout view on Microsoft Word 2007 is showing something while the Full screen reading is showing something completely different. :thumbsup: It's what I see in the full screen reading that gets printed!

I can off course uninstall office 2007 and install another version but I hate to leave this problem unsolved. Does anyone have an idea about this?

Thanks in advance.

Take care.

I don't now if it'll help, but you can edit documents directly in print preview in Word 2007 (uncheck Magnifier to see cursor). So, if your preview differs from what you have in editing mode - try to change what you need immediately in preview mode. Nevertheless, it's obvious that something is wrong, so maybe you should contact supplier for assistance.

Yes, you are right. I don't know if it's just me or the application but I am encountering more problems with Word 2007 than with previous versions!

Thanks :thumbsup:

I've noticed this not only with Word but with every Microsoft product. The more functional they become, the more bugs they have. Although I like new Office, I also had troubles with it.

yes, too bad because I liked this version of Microsoft Office too. I hope that they'll be able to fix all the problems with it. Meanwhile I've reinstalled the whole office suite, hopefully that this will fix my problem.
