When printing Excel spreadsheets on my HP Officejet 5740 in Draft mode, many horizontal lines fail to print. If I switch to Normal mode, all lines print. I prefer Draft mode for faster printing and to save ink. My 2-month-old Officejet 5740 replaced an Officejet 4500 on which I never had this problem. Any idea what's wrong and how I can fix it? Thanks.

They are borders, but only the horizontal ones. Vertical borders print OK.

Likely the draft on this new printer is lighter and smaller than the old one. You'll find that if you make the borders wider it will show.

By "wider" I assume you mean a heavier-weight line. That's possible In MS Word, where line width in tables can be adjusted by fractions of a point. But I don't see a similar capability in Excel. Various line styles are offered on a pull-down menu, but not line widths. If you know of a way to vary Excel line widths without changing the line style, I'd sure like to know how.
