    I have a Word document that visually looks fine on my screen but when I print it out all the text prints vertically. My printer prints out other files just fine so I can only assume the problem is with the file. Also, I tried starting over with a new file and got the same results. Help!!!

    Welcome to the Lounge!

    Do you mean that page orientation has been set to Landscape instead of the default Portrait?

    No the letters of the text are actually stacked on top of each other like this:
    H
    E
    L
    L
    O

    Only sideways. Think of this, "Hello" only each letter is turned 90 degrees counter clockwise.

    Could you attach a small document that exhibits this behavior?

    May I suggest that you open an old document in Word, print and advise on that behaviour, as a precaution I would make a duplicate first of that file.

    Ok, I made a couple jpgs to demonstrate what's going on. The screen shot is what I'm actually looking at before I hit print and the other jpg is a scan of the actual printed product.

    Do you have a Document Grid tab in the Page Setup dialog? If so, what is the Text Flow setting? It should be Horizontal, not Vertical.

    (This option is only available if you have enabled support for East Asian languages)
