missing text when print preview

By van ·
Win XP system, on Word 2002 the document seems to be fine, but when you go to print preview, there would be missing text on the bottom (about 3 inches will be cut off.)
The margin was checked, printer driver is the latest, and all updates were installed.

missing text when print preview

by carollong In reply to missing text when print p ...

Seen similar symptoms in various version of Word for a few reasons which gives me a quick list of stuff to check: Conflict between the paper sizes (A4, Letter) for the document and the printer set-up. The (old style tractor drive) printer had a physical limit with cut paper that meant it cold get to the very bottom of the page (you don't say what printer) but the document was orginally formated using a laser printer. There was a graphic in the footer that rose to the top in print preview but innormal view you saw the text because the footer way "grayed out". And one was because of a conflict in page & footer size margin where the file had some sort of corruption.
Hope this gives you somewhere to start.
