Problem Viewing Files

By gregberry ·
When I open certain files from another PC on a peer-to-peer network, I can only view the documents contents at a 110% or higher. If I look at the document at anything less than 110% I can only view some of the document. The smallest font is 8pt. When I view the document in print preview I can see everything. The files I am accessing are on another PC on a peer-to-peer network. If I save the file to my local hard disk, I don't have a problem viewing the file at 110% or less.

To sum up the problem:

I open text.doc that is located on another pc on my PC. I can only see some of the text, when I change the view to 110% or higher I can see the contents of the document. If I save text.doc to my local disk and then open it, I can viewthe document like I should be able to.

Any ideas or suggestions?

The Problem is in Word 2000

Sounds like there may be fonts installed one PC that aren't installed on the other PC, and being used in the document(s) in question. If you're opening the file from the other PC's hard drive, and the PC you're using doesn't have the fonts installed, your PC won't know how to display the text. Copy the fonts that are missing to the other PC, and that should solve your problem.

The reason that you can read the document in its entirety after saving it to the "other" hard disk is because Wordwill embed the TrueType font used into the document itself.

Good luck.
