Many users find when they print out documents containing Greek characters,
that parts of the equation appear clipped or cut off.
The Greek characters in the in Microsoft Office documents may appear clipped
if you are running under Windows NT with Microsoft Office 97 products when printing to a PostScript printer.
The problem affects all the Microsoft Office 97 products but does not occur
in any of the prior versions of Microsoft Office, or Office 2000 or XP, and does not
occur under Windows 95, 98, Me, or 2000.
There are two strategies you can use to work around this error: changing your
printing environment or using the Adobe PostScript printer driver.
Changing your printing environment
- Switch to a non-PostScript printer or non-PostScript printer driver.
- Switch to Windows 95, 98, 2000, or Me.
- Switch to
Office 95, 2000, or XP.
Using Adobe printer drivers
drastic solution is to use the Adobe PostScript printer driver. You can
download the Adobe
PostScript printer driver from Adobe's website and you will not have to
change your printer, version of Windows, or version of Microsoft Office.
