Microsoft word 2003, Printing in landscape.

by Huntertek / April 21, 2008 3:06 PM PDT

I've tried printing in landscape and it keeps showing up in print preview with only half a page, the other half keeps getting cut off and i've looked through the settings but don't know how to fix it, has anyone had a simular problem?

If so, how did you fix it?

There's a (very, I think) small chance, that it works OK on paper, and only half in print preview. Did you check that.

If it doesn't print correctly either, I'd update the printer driver.

...tried printing other documents, e.g. web page, landscape, and print preview shows only half of the page ? BTW, what is your definition of "half" ? If the page is filled in portrait mode, it may not necessarily fill up in landscape - do you mean half of the contents are not showing up ?

What if you create the same document in landscape mode and then print ?
