      This has nothing to do with Publisher and everything to do with your printer

      driver. I suggest you update it.

    • This problem only occurs with Publisher all other color printing is ok.

      Checked with HP Cust/Serv, after running checks, they say it is Publiser

      problem.

      No, it's a printer issue. The fact that you can print properly from every

      other application is completely irrelevant - Publisher is a DTP appliation

      and is very fussy about drivers. I will reiterate my original suggestion:

      update your printer driver.

    • Publisher has no printer issues. Have you looked on the HP site for support

      documents. What model HP do you have? Is your driver current?

      utter:

      I agree with Miss Tick.

      Most programs do not manipulate the printer driver in the same way that

      Publisher does, so most programs will print nicely.

      All printer manufacturers will always blame the software rather than

      admitting fault with their drivers, as it is on their script that they use

      to handle such issues.
