Microsoft Word/Word....


Good day
I am using Microsoft Word to put together a document.
When I print words are not showing up on the document. There are missing words in random places. It is not the printer, since I tried it on different printers. It seems to be the document. Can you tell me what are the different things that could be causing this and what can i do.
Note the document is fine since all the words are on the file but it is only when printed that I see words missing.

Hi Sunil,

I am not sure why the document is not printing correctly especially if you can see all the words in the document.  One thing I would suggest is to select all (CTRL+A) text, then check your Font to see if your color is consistent.  Just to ensure that you have everything consistent, select your Font Type, Font size and Font Color (make this automatic).  Try to print the document again.

Hope this helps.
