Lines Print below Footer in Show Markup


R

Ron Watt

Since updating a number of .dotm templates using Word2007 on Windows7 i
early 2012, these documents, when printed in Show Markup mode (wit
balloons), two horizontal black lines appear below the footer. See th
attached PDF for an example.

The two lines below the footer are evident when the document is printed
or "printed" to the "Adobe PDF" printer driver. The lines are inse
from the left margin progressively (ie. as if cut&pasted).

Curiously, the lines disappear if you Save As PDF from within Word.

These lines are not evident within the document.
They do not seem to be:
- paragraph borders (no borders on the header/footer paragraph marks)
- <hr> lines created 3 --- or === characters (not evident anywhere)
- collapsed boxes (could not find ^g (graphics), save for ...)
- footnote separators (deleting the footnote separator didn't help)

It may be related to document conversion, or corruption.
Maintain Compatibility with Word 97-2003 is selected.
Happy to clarify other points, or share a sample document.

Grateful for any help or ideas on removing these confounded lines

It would be more helpful if you attached a *Word* document for us to look at.

You can do that? Yes you can. But filesize limits get in the way.
The two documents in the zip attached are the source word document, an
that same document, printed to the Adobe PDF driver.
If you Save as PDF in Word, the lines do not appear in the PDF.

Hope that helps

I can't reproduce this on my system when printing to a PDF converter called
CutePDF. It seems as if the problem is with the Adobe PDF printer driver.

Does it happen with a hardcopy printer? That's the main issue.
That it happened with both was an issue

I haven't had the opportunity to test with a physical printer yet. My home
computer currently lacks a printer. :-(

To see what will print, all you need is that printer's drivers loaded and do
a print preview.
