Hi, I'm hoping someone can explain why I have a problem printing my newsletter when there's an inserted picture involved. I'm using Microsoft Word. The layout is two pages on an A4 sheet. When I come to print the document the text from the second page (where the inserted picture is) moves over and prints on top of the first page. So I have two layers of text on page one and just the photo/picture on an otherwise empty page two. It's driving me MAD !!!

Does it look like that on a print preview?

Right click the picture > format/picture properties and set it to be behind the text, see if that helps?

I've just tried the format idea but that didn't work. But thanks anyway. Boundaries? how do I do that?
Publisher, yes, I guess that might be an idea, but I've been doing it in word for years and this problem has only cropped up recently. Seems odd.

Open a new document and copy/paste everything over, see if it works then? Could have hit a hotkey or something and triggered a format change on your original document.

If that doesn't work try pasting to googledocs, does that work?

That's al I got to suggest without seeing the document.

Right click the picture and check that Text Wrapping is set to Top and Bottom or Behind or something like that. Also try grabbing the corner of the picture and making it a tiny bit smaller. If you are still having problems let me know

To embed the images in the Word 2007 document, perform the following:

Click on the Office button
Select Prepare
Scroll down to the last option which is Edit Links to Files
In the resulting dialog box click the checkmark near the bottom “Save picture in document”, go up and select all of the links and click Update Now and then OK.
When you save the file the pictures will be there and it can be sent to others.

If you are using Word 2010, please following the instructions on the following page

Thank you for all your help. I've tried all the suggestions but nothing's working. I'll just have to work without pictures for now. mad

I sometimes have this problem but you could try saving your MS Word as a PDF. This way what you see on screen is what you get from your printer..:)

Just as a added point to everyone. If you try and get rid of IE9 and roll back to IE8. Your computer sneaks it back on through automatic updates..

Anyone that has automatic updates enabled deserves to use IE.

Updates were useful back in 2000. Not anymore.
