Default Large Document - Printing


I have a large document (new hire package) which contains tables,
graphics, forms etc. When I try to print even one page of the
document, my printer drops off line. I understand that my printer
buffer may not be able to handle the entire however, not even on page?

I also have a large document (benefits package) which does not have
this problem. Perhaps is there something in the new hire package
document itself which causes the printer to drop off line?

Default Large Document - Printing

If other documents will print, then it sounds like you have a document
corruption. Unless your printer is seriously old, the driver and buffer
should be designed to handle long documents.

Try --

1. Converting to PDF and printing that.

2. SaveAs under a new name.

3. Select the first dozen or so pages, copy to a new document, and see if
that will print.

Like Jezebel says, the length of the doc shouldn't make a difference -
especially if other long docs print with no problem.

Another thought, though, is if the problem doc contains Section Breaks that
involve layout changes - page orientation in particular. Make sure that the
printer driver is up-to-date, & if the doc isn't corrupt you may need to
print it one Section at a time.

You might also try selecting all but the *last* paragraph marker (Ctrl+A,
Shift+LeftArrow to select), copy, then paste into a new blank doc & see if
that will print.

My advice to print your document by little parts If your printer is not
good. One dozen for once
