    Change Line Marker in Tracking Changes

    Background info:
    119 page Word 2000 file, mostly in columns of 2, 95os, HP LaserJet 4050n w/correct driver.

    Problem:
    When viewing document with changes, the Changed Line marker appears successfully on screen/print preview. However, when printing the border (no matter the choice is left, right) the individual column changes appear only on one or the other side. When selecting outside border, it appears on the left.

    These were my fix-it attempts:
    File originally Word 6.0/95, Saved As Word 2000
    Verified that all previous tracking had been accepted or Rejected. Began to apply track changes.
    This is a LAN file which is accessed/updated once a year
    Un/re-installed software
    un/re-installed printer
    verified all sp were loaded
    Selected other printers HP LJ 4/4plus
    Saving the file with a new name.
    Saving the file in an older format
    Reduced file size
    End the tracking session, then printing.
    Printed while in the session
    Created a new document, began tracking changes

    Assistance would be appreciated

    Trying to digest what you've outlined. You have 2 columns of text? Like so:

    ____ ____
    ____ ____
    ____ ____

    You want track changes to mark in the edges like so?

    <font color=red>|</font color=red>____<font color=red>|</font color=red> ____

    or ____ <font color=red>|</font color=red>____<font color=red>|</font color=red>

    but you are getting:

    <font color=red>|</font color=red>____ ____
    or
    ____ ____<font color=red>|</font color=red>


    I'm curious because I thought it marked that change in the page margin only and not the column margins, so I am anxious 1) to see if I've correctly understood your dilemna, and 2) what others offer as a solution.

    The text is in 2 columns
    __ __
    __ __


    Client would like markers to show (as indicated on screen)

    |____| ____

    or ____ |____|

    but I am getting:

    |____ ____

    |___ ____

    or

    ____ ___ |

    ___ ____|

    If the changed line marker tracks changes in page margin only, then does the outside border work w/ columns? According to my client, last year this document was accessed in Word it printed within the column margin.

    Thank you for responding.

    FWIW, I get the same result as your client with Word 97. Will try it with Word 2000 to see if it's different. I could find no article in the Knowledge Base that acknowledged this as a bug (or even mentioned it).
