    PPT Doesn't print what's on screen (2000 and 1997)

    I recently loaded PPT 2000 and still have 1997 on my laptop. Recently I've noticed that some words don't always print completely even though it shows on screen. I tried using PPT '97 but it also failed to print out the complete text on pages that used to print completely. Any ideas to fix?
    Thanks.

    In PowerPoint the full "Slide view" is the printable page (with margins). You probably knew that. So are you saying that if you have text typed to that edge it doesn't print to the edge? -or doesn't print at all?

    How about objects? Is it an issue with your printers printable area being different from what PP thinks it can print?

    Make several short lines both vertically and horizontally on your borders. Start at what you view as the edge and work in a half inch or so. How many of those lines print? Does it appear that lines cut-off at the same point that the text does?

    I know this is more questions than answers, but this may help you troubleshoot.

    Actually what Manny means is that the last letter of a word will just drop off. So the sentence...

    The dog jumped

    Prints out

    The dog jumpe

    It doesn't just happen at the margins, but in the middle of the page
