    Formating Woes (Office Pro 2000)

    I've never seen this before. In the attached file there are some lines where we want to bold and italicize the titles of books (top of page 2 Flaubert's Parrot and Desirable Daughters). Even though they look correct on the screen, the only way they will print is EITHER bold or italic. Not both.

    We've played with formating, with the styles, and even deleted the line and inserted a generic blank line and retyped it. It comes out the same way every time. THis is not the first time this has happened, but it does not happen every time. This text was cut and pasted from another Word 2000 document that an office mate sent.

    Explanation and a quick fix please? We're ready to retype from scratch!

    Thanks!

    Sorry about that...I thought it had attached properly.

    I can't get it to attach today. I feel like an idiot, but how do I get it to attach a file? I've used the browse button. Moved the file from our server to my desktop, made it smaller, tried copy/paste for both the document and the text itself...to no avail.

    Your attachment did come through. After some very brief testing, the issue seems to be related to the Garamond font. I can get the bold/italic combination to pritn in several other fonts I tested, including Times New Roman, Arial and Arrus. But even when I tried Garamond on a blank document of my own it would only print bold or italic, but not both.

    Another possibility is that this may be a printer driver problem, but I haven't got time to test that right now. Maybe someone else will have an idea.

    In the meantime, perhaps you should consider changing the font.

    The Garamond typeface included with Word does not include the font "BoldItalic". Word approximates the font on screen and may print an approximation to the printer, but if the font is not installed it won't look right in the printout

    Typefaces are created in different sizes and weights...some have narrow, condensed, expanded, bold, italic, demi-bold, extra bold, black, etc., but not all typefaces are created in all weights because the typeface (or font) design does not lend itself to use of those weights, or the font package is an economy release. It appears you will need to use a typeface other than Garamond in order to have Bold and Italic together or purchase a font package that includes the font Garamond BoldItalic.

    I guess WYSIWYG is not always the case, is it? <img src=/S/eargear.gif border=0 alt=eargear width=20 height=20>

    Thanks so much! I really appreciate everyone's help--long live the Lounge!

    That's why I call it "WYSISWYG -- What You See is Sometimes What You Get".
