According to your description, SQL 2012 database diagram is not printed correctly and several of column names are missed. There are some suggestions for troubleshooting this issue, you can refer to the following steps.
1. We recommend you can copy database diagram to Word and check if it will print correctly.
2. When printing database diagrams, several of the tables contain large grey squares instead of the column names. We recommend switch Windows XP computer from Classic theme to Windows XP theme, and check if it can print correctly.
