    Landscape sections printing portrait (Word XP)

    Hi everyone,

    This is happening throughout my company and on multiple types of printers; I'm 98% certain it's not a print driver issue.

    When we print a document containing comments/tracked changes (displaying "balloons"), the landscape sections are printing as portrait if we print the entire document. Print Preview displays it correctly; printing only the landscape section prints it correctly; or printing "document only" (not displaying the balloons) prints it correctly. Unfortunately (as you've already guessed) the people I support aren't willing to accept any of those solutions.

    Does anyone know if there's a fix for this? Does MS have a patch?

    Thanks,

    Beej

    It appears to be a known problem - see MSKB article WD2002: Paper Orientation Shifts from Landscape to Portrait. I don't know if the workaround suggested there will do what you want (I always keep balloons turned off).
