Default Word Template Printing problem

Protected section in a Word template won't print. I can view the section when
I open the template but it disappears when I do a Print Preview or print it.
My co-worker can print the same template correctly. What setting in Word is
causing this error?

Default Word Template Printing problem

Any chance that the portion not printing is in a text box? Form fields
should not be in text boxes, by the way. If it is a text box that is not
printing, you need to turn on the printing of drawing objects in the print
options dialog.

What you are talking about is what Word calls an "online form." For more
about online forms, follow the links at
http://addbalance.com/word/wordwebresources.htm#Forms or
http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Customizat...nTheBlanks.htm especially Dian
Chapman's series of articles. You may also want to look at

Hope this helps,

Charles,
Your suggestion was exactly right! I'd checked my coworkers settings for
Print options and missed that checkbox. Thanks for your help.

You are welcome. Glad it helped. Keep in mind though, that it is my
understanding that text boxes are poor holders for fields. You should
consider converting them to frames or using tables as holders instead.

Thanks for the suggestion. The design of the the template is entirely out of
my control but I will pass on your suggestion as this particular template is
used by over a thousand people in MI. It is a very big deal to change it.
