Re: Manual.dot template in Word 2000
Why would the same Word 2000 *.doc file attached to copies of the same Manual.dot template print out differently on the same printer?
My co-worker copied her Manual.dot template onto the public drive. I copied that Manual.dot template into my C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates folder. I re-attached the Manual.dot template to my *.doc file. Then, I copied all the styles from this Manual.dot template into my *.doc file. I made sure that the descriptions of the Chapter Subtitle style matched in both the template and the *.doc file.
However, when I printed the *.doc file the characters in a Chapter Subtitle style were too close together. A rather amusing example is that the "cl" in "click" appeared as a "d".
How can I fix this template problem?
BTW, my client prefers Word for various reasons.
Are you using a different printer driver? That is the first thing that I would check. It will make the file print differently.
Don't you just love Word and the way Microsoft makes it work?
