Word:mac quits when printing in Tiger

by spark007 / January 25, 2006 3:17 PM PST

G4, Tiger/OS X 10.4.4, Epson Stylus Photo 825 printer, Word X (Word:mac)

I've read incompatibility issues between Tiger and Epson. But before my current Word issues printing has been almost routine.

Word:mac has developed an aversion to printing: if I ask it to print anything, it quits. I need to find a solution asap. I've runthe Disk Utility and Repairs and it hasn't helped.

If anyone has experienced a similar problem I'd like to hear from them.

Does the printer work with other programs. AppleTalk, TextEdit, Mail, etc.?

My Epson printer spools and prints with other programs but not in Word.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
