Subject:Re: Word problem--Word 95! From:"Wilcox, John (WWC, Contractor)" <wilcoxj -at- WDNI -dot- COM> Date:Wed, 11 Feb 1998 15:24:00 -0800
From: Comstock-Fisher, Julie
I have a pretty short document, around 5 pages long. When I print it,
some of the lines print over the line above. I changed the line spacing
to double, so I could edit it, and it's doing this weird print thing
even more now. Needless to say, it's making my text really hard to read.
I have seen this type of problem many (way too many!) times. Try
changing the view magnification. Just going from 100% to 99% often does
the trick. If that works, it's the problem caused by Word's faulty
rounding-off algorithm used to place items on the screen.
