Has anyone had any experience with using Adobe Acrobat 4.0, loaded on the same computer as MS Word 2000? I have several files which _were_ printing just fine, until I installed Adobe Acrobat. Now the templates & options dialog lists PDFmaker in the list of installed elements, _and_ I can't print the two documents!! Not only can't I print, but the printer doesn't do the same thing twice. Sometimes it prints page 2 perfectly (but page 6 is a mess), sometimes it prints, but has a line of machine code (or garbled text) running through the figure on the page, sometimes it turns all type to a squashed sort of Courier face, and runs it across defined columns, etc......it goes on and on! I have uninstalled Adobe Acrobat, but it still persists in printing junk. And I have gone through the several "fix it" steps recommended by MS, including saving in different formats, pasting into new documents, and the MS Office Pro "repair" function. I have re-installed both MS Office Pro, and the printer driver--all to no avail. Anyone have any experience with this? Or any ideas? HELP!
