Office 2007 - Word stacks the letters on top of each other...

I am feeling a little bit on the cranky side right now.

I am trying to print to PDF a document that is due on my client's desk soon.

This is what is happening in Word:


This is what the PDF output looks like:


It looks like that whether generated for PDF, on the LJ 4600, or on the LJ 5Si.

Copy and paste the document into Notepad, then copy and paste the content back into a new document seems to cure it, though with all of the formatting stripped.

Must be a legacy Word codes issue with the template being used...it is our default letter template that has been around for a long time!

Ack! Things always seem to break when on a deadline! 8*O

Did you find a solution to this problem? I also have had this problem crop up.

A temporary work around is to copy the content into Notepad, then start a new Word 2007 document and paste it back in.
Recreate your formatting and try printing it then.
That worked for me.
