Print Problem

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.print_fax (More info?)

I have created a document in Wordpad. Everything looks aligned properly on the screen, but when I print it, the right
side of the report jumps out of alignment. Some words are moved way over the margin limit. example below:

choice of bacon, ham, or sausage........................................... $ 3.50
choice of bacon, ham, or sausage..................................................$ 3.00
choice of bacon, ham, or sausge............................................. $3.50
and so on....i have tried setting differnt margin, etc. nothing helps. My deadline is here and
I need so help....thanks.....Susan

    Why are you making life difficult and using Wordpad? Surely you must have
    Office - Word at the very least? Wordpad is for basic editing. If you don't
    have Word, suggest you purchase it.

    Hardly a constructive answer to the question. I assume you don't know the
    answer so why respond?

    Your tab settings are incorrect.

    It is. It appears she's running a business and it isn't very businesslike to
    be using a simple text editor for word processing. If she was using Word she
    wouldn't be having a problem.

    Besides, I don't see /you/ offering anything (more) constructive.

    So you are a Business Efficiency Consultant now!

    The reason I didn't offer advice as I was uncertain of the solution to the
    problem. My response was directed at you, or hadn't you noticed?
