Bold + Italic Font Causing Weird Print & Display Issues
by rfultonjr - 8/16/05 6:57 AM
I have Office 2002 Professional installed on my (new) Compaq Presario. Within the last two weeks, when I am in Word, Excel or Powerpoint and I try to use bold and italicized "Times New Roman" font (font size not an issue), the text disappears. In the case of Excel, not only does the text disappear, but the row height increases astronomically.
I can use Times New Roman font with just bold, just italicized, or underlined with either of the other two. It only screws up when bold and italic are both selected. No other fonts display this strange habit. It happens in loder files, as well as ones I have created in the last two weeks. Unfortunately, I am wedded to TNR font.
I have tried the "detect and repair" function. What are my options short of purchasing Office 2003? Thanks for any help you can render.
