Windows 7: Word 7007 Objects Move when Printing

Word 7007 Objects Move when Printing

I am preparing a Word 2007 document which includes image objects and text in text boxes. I can format the image objects and text boxes correctly in the editing view, but when I print preview or print, the objects move in a way I don't understand. One example is image objects "jumping" to a different location on the print page. Another example is text boxes changing size so part of the text disappears off the right edge of the printed page. Is there a way to print exactly what I see in the editing view?

Thx, Gus

Do you see the same issue in the Print Preview window?

This may be caused by where the object anchors actually are within the document. This website might help you with that.
