Subject:PDF vs. MS Word files vs. Printer! From:Sharyn Mathews <editor -at- neca -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Tue, 14 Nov 2000 13:31:16 -0500
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!
