    I'm trying to print a Word 2007 document with a header. The header text is inside a frame (not a textbox). The frame is rotated and placed in the left margin. While printing the header text becomes squeezed, see the attachment.

    Is this a Word2007 'feature'?

    Grateful for any help, Rico Mazereeuw

    It is possible that Word is using a printer font and the on-screen representation is not completely accurate. Can you make the frame wider/longer?

    Hi,

    Making the frame wider did help. But the frame allready covered the length of the page. Now the text is readable but divided over three lines. See new attachment.

    The font used is "TimesTen RomanOsF", a postscript font.

    Thanks, Rico

    Hi,

    I forgot to mention that on screen (in Word2007) the header looks fine.

    Hi Rico
    From reading your post and viewing your page that is in a PDF format.
    It sounds to me to be a printer issue.
    First off how does it appear in print preview? From original document.
    Second have you tried to print this document using a printer (Not PDF format), from original document not the PDF.
    Third check your settings for your PDF printer, that most likely is the problem

    I don't know why the text is wrapping. Since I do not have a copy of the problem document, can you examine the frame and paragraph properties to see whether they provide any clue? Meanwhile, what happens if you use non-breaking spaces between the words? (You can insert a non-breaking space using Ctrl+Shift+Spacebar.)

    Hi

    Attached is a docfile with the header.

    It is not a printer issue. I also printed the document with a HP laserjet 4 printer with the same (squeezed) result.

    I've tried non-breaking spaces, but the wrapping still occurs.

    The header text itself is a styleref field.
    I've typed normal text in the frame, tried left alignment, both without result.

    If the frame is replaced by a textbox, the header text prints allright.

    Problem is, there are some 20 templates with frames in the header. The templates are converted from Word 2003.
    Replacing the frames with the textboxes takes a lot of extra time.

    Thanks, Rico

    I can replicate this problem, but I can't think of any solution other than the one you've found, which would be to update your 20 templates.

    I'm afraid you're right.
    Thanks for looking at it.
