Running Office 2003 on XP Operating System. For some reason my Word documents that include pictures and text boxes will print the text but not anything in the boxes nor the pictures. These don't come up on a print preview, don't print into pdf or on the printer. Has been working okay and now isn't. Any suggestions.

Does your printer have some type of "economy" or "draft" mode in which text only is printed, and some how it's become the default mode for printing?

I checked the printer settings, couldn't find anything untoward but just in case I uninstalled the printer and reinstalled. Didn't help!! Any more suggestions please.

Check your printing options in Tools>Options>Print also. If that doesn't help, then I'm at a loss for a solution, sorry!

Whoopee, thank you, found the boxes to tick and it's all good. Not sure why they changed but it's been a good learning experience and now I know something new. (y)
