Graphics not printing consistently from Word 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a large (118 MB) .docx file that I am having problems with printing from MS Word 2010. The file is about 200 pages and it contains several dozen .EMF graphic files. They are maps created on an 8.5" x 11" canvas exported as .EMF files from our mapping software at 220 dpi. Each individual .EMF file is about 12 MB prior to importing into the document.

    The problem is that some of the maps do not print when the document is printed to our network printer (Ricoh MP C3300). And this is a sporadic problem in that it is not always the same maps that do not print.

    The document can be printed to a PDF file just fine and this PDF can be printed to the network printer ok also.

    I am wondering if the file size of the .docx file might be a problem for printing? Any feedback on how I can troubleshoot this is very welcome!

  • Hello,

    Go to File -> Options -> it will bring the Word Options Box in that box go to Display and in Printing Options check mark the Print background colors and images.

    it will print your images now.

    if you have any more questions feel free to ask.
