Windows 7: print preview not accurately showing what is in Word doc

print preview not accurately showing what is in Word doc

my Word 2010 on-screen doc appears properly paginated with all graphics in place but print preview shows everything askew

graphics are the worst - a graphic lined up correctly in the doc on screen appears in the bottom of the previous doc in print preview...

JMHO, Word 2010 (read Office 2010) sucks - I've wasted more time *#%# around with it...

2007 was better - I publish long, graphics-filled docs - Word 2010 chokes on them whereas Word 2007 was hiccup free - navigation in Word 2010 blows too

moving one step closer to a Mac...

Does the document print as you would expect or does it reflect the preview?

BTW: Which printer are you using?
