    When printing out a power point slide show on my Plll 800 with 256 RAM and running windows 98SE, I ran into a strange happening and I was wondering is this something that has happened to others and if so what did they do about it.
    I was printing the notes section of the slides. The first 56 out of 58 printed out fine, the 57th and 58th would not print the notes sheets, but would print the slide sheets and the handout sheets.
    I was using a HP1220C printer being feed through a USB line.
    Switched to a cannon BJC 2000 and it printed the notes fine.
    I rebooted both the computer and printer and checked the printer test program and all checked good.
    Any Ideas!!

    How big is the file?

    Likely, it was just a wee bit too big for the printer to manage its memory to handle.

    I wouldn't be overly concerned. I've had this problem (not this EXACT--but similar and I don't recall exactly) many times in the past, and we just resorted to printing out partials...

    The file size was a litttle over 6 megs, but the funny part is that when I tried to print out just the one frame notes it would not print. But did print on the other printer.
    The guy that invented these things is helping to drive the world crazy.
    Will see if it happens again, and if it does I will be back.
    Thanks for the come back.

    It doesn't contain "reverse type", does it?

    You lost me there. What is reverse type and where can I find it?

    Like a black box with white text. That causes the text to be "printed" white, which means not printed at all. Lots of printers can't handle that.

    Don't think that was the problem since one of the pages was a color picture.
    I will keep a eye out for more problems and update this mess down stream.
    Thanks again for you help.
