Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

Everytime that I try to print a document, I am getting a lot of boxes. I am not getting the words printed that I need.

Hi Goody2Shoes6, what a great nickname!

\015\012If the boxes are a rectangle for every letter, try changing the font, especially if the printer is an old model and the font is recent, if it does it for every font, type up a letter (or type =rand(3) in word and it will put some blurb up for you) then press the Alt key at same time Print Scrn key. Then open paint and go to edit menu / paste. go File Print preferences and set the page to 1 by 1 pages, File / Print preview, if good Print.
\015\012
\015\012The printer should print it, as it is taking it as a picture file, if that same font won't print straight from word (and gives you little squares) it means the printer doesn't have that font listed in it's memory
\015\012
\015\012If it is the case, buy a new printer, or use an older font that works.

Perhaps this is an elementary question, and reflects my ignorance, but I don't think so. I'd appreciate help. When I use Fine Reader 9 to convert an image to MS Word, some of the letters -- lots of them -- show in a blue background, i.e., highlghted in blue. I cannot find any way to get rid of this blue highlight, either by any command in FR9 or in Word. I have tried to get rid of this blue highlight by converting the text to WordPerfect, but that does not help, and there is nothing I can do in


I don't know much about Abby FineReader but I have a hunch it is failing to recognize all of the text in your document. So the text in MS Word with the blue background is actually a graphic and not text at all.I also think if you save th ... ABBYY Software House ABBYY FineReader Professional 9.0 Full Version for PC

Not sure if you help with software problems but its worth a try. I recently updated from office 1997 to office 2003 student/teacher edition. I need to do extensive edit to many old Word documents by changing format. Word 2003 does not seem to like copy and paste when moving information from one document to another. It changes font/size/type and format eraticaly. Microsoft is no help at all. Any suggestions?
