    I am using word 2000 and printing to a HP laser printer. The problem is the the word document
    is split into two sections becasue I want to print one section as Landscape and the other section
    as Portrait. The first section is Landscape and the section below it is set for Portrait. The problem
    is that when I print the document, the Landscape prints fine but the section set for portrait has
    the font stretched and looks nothing like arial or courier or any other font. No matter what font
    I change to for the portrait section it always prints like the letters are stretched. Have any ideas
    on how I can make this print the way I want it too?

    Yes, margins have/were checked. The problem is that when you divide the document into two sections using a "section break" the bottom section of the document is printed wrong. This may be due to that the printer doesnt understand how to handle printing two sections with one section in Landscape and the other in Portrait. That is what I need help with, trying to find whether or not there is something missing in printer setup or in windows word that needs to be "turned on" or "turned off".
