    16bit vs. 32bit

    Can anyone tell me if the formatting of a PowerPoint slide created on a 32bit system (Windows 98) will be affected when that file is displayed and/or printed on a 16bit system (Windows 95a). I created a program handout, for a show that my son is doing in school, here at home and sent it to school on a floppy for his teachers to print the 100+ copies they need for the show. But the image displays and prints incorrectly on their computer. The bottom and right edge of the image display off the slide and are cut off in the printout. Any ideas ???
    Thanks!!

    Have you try to check the 'Scale to fit paper' in the Print Dialog Window ?

    This is not a 16bit vs 32bit problem. It is most likely caused by a difference in the resolution of the displays on the two systems.

    Thanks for the input but that only addresses the Print issue and not the Display issue. The files display off the slide and the printout is clipped off at the point where the file leaves the slide.

    Thanks for the reply. I tried changing the resolution on an old 133 Pentium system running Windows 98 and then opened the file at 640 x 480 without a problem. The file also printed OK on that machine using an older HP printer. Since this issue is with both the screen image and the printout of the file it would seem to indicate a file architecture incompatability rather than a difference in the display resolution or a printer driver issue.
    Any further thoughts would be welcomed.
