Before I commit the rash act of actually phoning PageMaker tech support, I
thought I'd ask if anyone out there has encountered bizarre problems when
trying to print a PM document. Specifically, My graphics (usually screen
captures) sometimes print with white stripes running through them; sometimes
print upside down (I'm not kidding!); and/or sometimes print half right side
up, half upside down. Once in awhile, a page of text will also turn itself
upside down. At first, I thought the problems were being caused by incorrect
print drivers having been loaded on my PC, but the mess continued even after
the driver situation was fixed.

Anybody have a clue to what's happening (other than that my PC may be
possessed by demons)?
