Subject:Re: printing Word outlines without body text? From:John Posada <john -at- TDANDW -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 25 Feb 1999 12:24:10 -0500
hmmmm...works for me.
Word 97, NT4 SP3
I created a quick page, 6 Heading 1's, each Heading 1 has two Heading
2's, each Heading 2 has some greeked text.
In Outline view, when I select to view only level 1 and print, I get
only the Heading 1 text. When I view to level 2 and print, I get only
the Heading 1 and Heading 2 text. When I view ALL, I get Heading 1,
Heading 2, and the greeked body text.
