    Print formatted outline (2002)

    Presently creating an outline for an upcoming report. On-screen, it looks good with all the automatic indents for the various Heading levels. When I Print Preview, the formatting reverts to the formats of the current style sheet, so that all of the indented items scurry back to the left margin. Am I correct in assuming the only way to print an Outline that resembles the on-screen view of the Outline is to create a new style sheet that sets all the indents of each individual Heading level?

    Or is there an easier method that I am overlooking?

    There is no print format for the Outline View; however, if you do a screen shot, Alt+Print Screen button and then paste into a new blank document, you could print that?? Hope this helps... trish

    Would you get something useful by inserting a temporary table of contents? The TOC styles can be defined as you like.

    Yes, you should modify the Heading 1, Heading 2, etc., styles to have the appropriate indents. It's a bit time-consuming, but once you have it saved in one document or template, you will be able to copy it to future ones using the "Organizer."

    You can set the TOC styles the way you want your outline & then print the TOC. Or, if you wanted to do this in another document, you could use the {RD} field in a new document to create your TOCs & print several.

    Thanks for the confirmation -- that's what I ended up doing. Took me a bit of time to find the Organizer. Also waded thru the Format > Theme menu, and eventually found the Style Gallery which is where I finally deposited the new template that I made. Not sure that I understand the purpose for "Themes" instead of the "Style Gallery" -- I guess that's another day's task.

    Hello,

    Though it doesn't display correctly in print preview, when you print from Outline View, you'll indeed get the formatted outline. I just verified on Word 2003.
