Hi all:

I did my manual in Word 7, and it printed through Docutext just fine,
screen shots and all (had some moire problems but this can be solved
through adjusting Windows Display settings, I understand).

Two things that may have facilitated the printing:

1) I printed to *.prn files and sent the printers the files. This way _they_
didn't have to convert the files. (On Win95, install the Apple LaserWriter
II NTX. Under Properties/Details, make sure the port you're printing to is
FILE:)

2) I imported the graphics into Word as grayscale *.tifs rather than as
*.bmps. When I saved the *.tifs I made sure that LZW compression was
disabled.

Just some thoughts.
