I posted a little while back about my documents not printing correctly.
The problem was fixed temporarily by installing a new printer driver.
But, alas, the problem came back!
I spent all day long on the phone with Microsoft today, and it turns out
that my 17 documents that I spent two weeks working on, are corrupted.
They must have been corrupted early on, because the original files are
bad as well. (I save copies every day.) Microsoft says the only way to
save the docs is to create a txt file from the docs and re-format, and
reinsert the graphics. I might as well recreate the darned things.
Does anyone know of a utility that locates corruption and fixes Word
docs? Any thoughts on how to make this less painful?
