Bottom of letters cut off in Word RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a document where the 'y' and 'g' letters get cut off on the bottom but only on every other line of text. 

    How can I fix this?

  • That suggests your paragraphs are formatted with a fixed line height (e.g. 12pt) or a multiple value that is too small for the font concerned. Changing it to 'single' or another suitable multiple should resolve the problem. Checking or unchecking Word's 'Optimize character positioning for layout rather than readability' option and/or the 'Disable hardware graphics acceleration' may also help (see under File|Options|Advanced>Display). If the latter has an effect, that suggests you need to obtain an updated display driver. Alternatively, there may be a problem with your printer driver, which you may be able to reinstall or replace with a new one from the maker's website.
