Windows 7: Problem Printing Labels in Word 2010 Home and Student.

Problem Printing Labels in Word 2010 Home and Student.

I've used Avery's 5262 plain white mailing labels with their downloaded Word template to print my labels since Word 2003 in XP. Even though Avery recommends against it, I found that, as long as I let the label carrier sheet cool down completely after printing on a few of the 14 labels on the sheet, I could reuse the sheet to print on any of the remaining labels. I've reused individual sheets several times before I used up all the labels and never had a problem.

I'm now using Word 2010 Home and Student in Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I noticed yesterday when printing up some labels that the faint outline on that shows onscreen so one can see where each label is in the template were printing onto the labels, something tha6 has never happened before. Since perfect alignment in the printer rarely happens (1-2mm skew is considered normal for this printer; I rarely get more than 1mm), the printed outlines are obvious. I can deal with it for the first printing run but it will become excessive on subsequent runs, meaning if I want to run off only a few labels, the rest of the sheet will be unusable. That's an unacceptable amount of waste.

Does anyone have any idea why all of a sudden the faint outline that's not supposed to print is suddenly printing? I've already turned off View Gridlines in tables and have No Borders selected.
