Windows 7: Mailmerge and Text/Graphics Boxes

24 Jun 2011   #1

Windows XP Professional 2002 Service Pack 3
Mailmerge and Text/Graphics Boxes

Anyone come across this? Using mailmerge in Word 7, with a template with a picture box (our logo) top left, and a text box (containing address) top right. If I print the document without merging any data, it's fine. As soon as I import my data - nowhere near either of the boxes - the address text box to the right of the logo picture box gets partially obscured by blank space and ends up showing only the last half of each line. If I remove the picture box, the contents of the text box print OK; or if I take the address out of the text box and enter it as indented text in the same place to the right of the logo, it's also fine.

Sounds as if the text boxes may need resizing.

Just try touching the text box, grab the corner anchor point, then push it towards the middle, without changing the layout of your text.

Text drops out of dialog boxes
For some reason, the text is not showing up in the dialog boxes, which makes it impossible to download software unless you have a VERY good memory about where the "Next" button is. The buttons show, but absolutely no text. Anyone had this problem? Is it the registry? A driver? It just started when...
