print problem with Word 2010


Recommended Posts

I have been trying to print my golf league book. I wanted a booklet. I have in the past printed it manually sheet by sheet. However, my last computer was stolen, and the new laptop has 2010. I hate it!! However, I digress.........When I try to print, I want 2 pages per sheet. The print drop down DOES NOT HAVE the "1 page per sheet"" line. Only in this document!?? Other documents previous to the beginning of the year do have this in the print options. I saved it to a pdf file and then I could print 2 pages per sheet.Any ideas why the pages/sheet option is missing??

I was able to manually print 2 pages per sheet when I saved it to a pdf file. The big problem I have is the "Print pages per sheet"at the bottom of the print tab is not there!! It is there on other documents. How can I get this back??? Should I copy the document to another new document??

I'm using Word 2013 and I have that feature... I'm sure it was there also in 2010 but I don't have it installed anywhere to look....

For 2013 anyway, just click File, Print and it's the last option with the default of "1 Page Per Sheet". Just select it to what you want.

I have a few word 2010 installations and its there on all of those.

I've tried to replicate the problem you are having whilst working on some old booklets that I had but the pages per sheet option is always there.

Since you are only having this problem with a single document it appears to be the document that's causing it rather than word 2010 itself.

I would try copying the booklet into a brand new word document. It wont damage the original file and its likely that whatever is causing the problem will be left behind.

If that doesn't work try choosing the option to paste just the text. Since this option as it says only pastes the text you will definitely be leaving whatever is causing the problem behind. You will need to reformat the booklet, if you can easily do this manually then I would do so.

If there is a lot of complicated formatting of the pages text etc then you could try using the format painter to copy the formatting from the original document to the new one.

If you can store a copy of the document on-line with a link to it, I will open it on one of my word 2010 machines and have a look at it for you to see what happens.

      Hello! I recently tried to follow the instructions in the article 'how to disable startup programs in windows...'. The process seemed to work until after the re-start when I got a serious looking message that basically told me to reinstate everything to a previous date point to avoid damaging the computer. Well I did that because I'm insecure about the inner mysteries of the computer, but would still like to get rid of automatic start-up of my photo programs and other things. So what is really necessary in the start-up and how do I bypass the rather demanding order to re-instate everything after I've unticked the things I think are not needed? Thank you all in advance for your help. My operating system is Windows XP.

      Most of the time when you install an application, the application likes to automatically start when Windows boots. It does this by adding itself to a registry key.
      Here are a few of the startup registry keys:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnceHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServicesHKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunHKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce
      Usually the program can be found in one of those keys, but sometimes instead it will add itself to the startup folders:
      %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup%C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup%
      I've tried locking down these locations by adjusting who can edit these, but that makes it really hard to add applications to them that you actually DO want running at Startup. Does anyone have an easier way of blocking applications from adding themselves to Startup in Windows, while at the same time allowing you to add the ones that you like to startup.

      Perhaps if we could just block installers from adding to startup that would be best.

      I'm on Windows 7 and I'd like to know how can I change the number of programs the start menu shows. I just want to pin my favorite apps to the start menu and not show any recently opened or most opened apps. That's one thing that really pisses me off...

      I have been opening several attachments which are saved on my computer and trying to save them in various formats. In the process, I must have changed some settings since when I, now, double click on attachments to emails coming in, they ope in "paint" software and not in the normal formats.
      How do I regress back to the normal software for opening attachments on emails coming in to me?

      What, exactly, is Windows Defender in Vista? It is such a resource hog and seems to begin randomly and take forever to finish its scan. Do I really need it? I run some good antivirus software (Avast Pro.) If not, how do I disable it?Thanks in advance!
