    Word skips spaces when printing (Word XP)

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by HansV on 27-Oct-03 22:14. Removed superfluous line ends - the browser will wrap lines automatically.)</P>I am running Office XP On Windows XP. I had a document in which I used Times New Roman. When printing this document I noticed that I had extra spaces in my document. I updated the printer driver but the problem did not go away.

    Any solutions available for this problem?

    Did you have your paragraph format set to Justify text?
    Where were the extra spaces? On all lines or just some? Spread evenly through the line or bunched up?

    My paragraph was left aligned. The extra spaces were within words, breaking up the words. There was maybe 2-4 cases per page.

    Sorry for more questions - but I don't have an answer and one may "jump out" if we get enough understanding...

    Was there any consistency in the pairs of letters that suffered from this?
    What printer was it?
    Did it happen with multiple documents or just one or two?
    Was the text definitely formatted with the Times New Roman Truetype font?

    Hi Linda,

    You may be able to fix this by reinstalling the TNR font - it could be corrupt. You should do this through Control Panel, deleting the existing copies first.

    Cheers

    > Problem completely gone with CG Times font --- which actually is nicer than TNR

    The Printer's properties dialog might let you make this a permanent mapping. If you are using a PostScript driver for an HP LaserJet, it's in the Font Substitute section. Others, I'm not sure.
