Windows 7: Word 2013 reformats text into BOLD on issuing print command

Word 2013 reformats text into BOLD on issuing print command

This is gonna drive me insane. I have a report in Traditional Arabic font that I used to be able to print just fine; normal text and a bold header. All out of a sudden, Word now converts all the text into bold and locks it in that format upon issuing a print command, meaning that the text retains its bold appearance no matter whether the status is applied or not.

I tried creating and printing new documents after restarting the computer, and the problem hilariously prevails only with the same font, Traditional Arabic. Other fonts print just fine, while Traditional Arabic still gets locked in bold appearance and that's about it.

The workaround that works is copying the exact same text into Google Docs, and it prints fine (and in the same font). But given that Word 2013 didn't give me this issue before, there must be something that I'm missing! Any ideas?

Is Word a part Office 2013, if so you could try a repair of Office. To do that open Control Panel & select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office & Right Click on it & select Change, this will open a couple of repair options to try.

Also make sure Office 2013 is up to date, to do that open any Office program, select File & then click on Account, there you will see Office Updates, click on that & select Update Now. Once that starts you can close Office or continue working in Office if you wish.

Bold Text Issue
Hello. As the title states, I'm having an issue with the display of my OS. :mad: I know exactly how this happened, earlier I uninstalled 4200+ fonts by CTRL-A + DEL. Now I'm aware that wasn't very bright, but one would think that Windows would not let you delete vital fonts, right? Anyway,...
