Printer Automatically Highlights Printed Text

Question: Printer Automatically Highlights Printed Text

I have an HP LaserJet P1102 printer. I've noticed that every line of text is highlighted with a faint gray color when printed out. I tried looking at the settings if anything was causing this, but I couldn't find anything.

Preferred Solution: Printer Automatically Highlights Printed Text

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Printer Automatically Highlights Printed Text

This may sound a bit obvious, but are you sure the grey isn't there on the text on the screen? Often, I've copied/pasted stuff from the web that looks like black text on a white background - but on closer examination, it turns out to be a light grey background. Only reformatting the text brings the background back to white.

we have one member of our 'team' who is using Open Office (1.9 I think), the rest use MS Office. We generate documents that need editing, with the relevant sections of text highlighted for quick identification. This person (OO user)sometimes either cannot remove the highlighting or forgets to (!). We are finding that we cannot remove the highlighting on the returned documents, even though they have been saved on the 'server' as a MS Word doc.Does anyone know a solution for this please?

Answer:Can't remove highlights from text

I don't think there is a solution. I use and like Open Office, but is not that compatible with Microsoft office because certain elements are not supported as you are finding out.I use Microsoft Office at work, but if I do any work at home for work I've got to compile it in Microsoft Office, luckily it works on my Linux machine. Sorry about the bad news. Why don't you all use Open Office? I think its much more versatile than MS Office.I don't think our IT department would take kindly to converting 2500 terminals to OO, so I've got to carry on using it at work.

I made changes to the settings for the mouse in Ease of Settings and in the Start Menu. It did not help. Also everything I move the cursor over, highlights. The cursor started opening links just a few days ago, gradually. It didn't open everything, now it does. The highlighing problem started yesterday. I am using a pc, win 7, IE 8.I appreciate any tips/suggestions as this is very frustrating.

Answer:Cursor automatically opening sites and everything highlights

In ease of access there a check box for open a window when mouse is hovering over it, uncheck that.
you could restore to a date before you made changes if that's the issue.

Recently there's been an annoying little animation pop up whenever I click something. I can't really explain it, but it's similar to the blinking | you see when typing in text fields. Everything I click on something it shows up. It's really annoying. It even happens when I click a picture, except it appears as a HUGE blinking bar. Can someone help?

Answer:Not sure.. text field-like highlights when I click anything

I have a Yoda 2 13 that has been OK except for one very annoying trait. When entering text machine intermttenly and randomly highlights text. If Im not very careful and dont notice when it highlights text and then hit another key it will replace everythig highlighted (often everythng you just typed) with that key. Cant tell you how many times I have had to retype a block of text due to this apparent random highlighting. I prefer using a track ball mouse and almost always have one hooked up (not sure if this has anything to do with it). If I remember to turn the trackpad off by pressing key on keyboard it seems to fix random highlighting. Problem is I have to turn trackpad off each and every time I turn machine on. Kind of PITA because I often forget to turn trackpad off until I have lost a bunch of text due to this random highlighting and deleting problem. I never use the trakpad. Is there any way to permenatley disable the trackpad? Is the trackpad the cause behind this apparent random highlighting of text? Am I inadvertently touchingthe trackpad with base of my thumb (palm of hand) thus causing this highlighting? Any thought or ideas on how to get around this? Could it have something to do with motion detection or some other function other than the trackpad?

I've tried several css codes on the web to use in the chrome.css but nothing is happening so the codes I've found are obviously not right!

What I really need to know is (possibly) three things:
The correct code to use in the css file to (a) stop FF using system colour and using a.n.other colour. (b) Which chrome folder file to use it in, chrome.css or content.css?
or
The correct code to use in about:config if that is where I should be looking.
or
The correct code to search for and replace in the theme files. And a rough idea of where to find them!!

Ta in advance if anyone can help!

Help!!! I posted this yesterday (print preview different from actual printed text, 16.23): I am trying to print a long document as economically as possible. In print preview, text appears to end very near bottom of page. The actual printed page, however, falls short by some 2-3". No text is missing, but it seems smaller than I would expect. Before I print, I get a message "Margins of section 1 are set outside the printable area of the page. Do you want to continue?" I want to fully fill the page, either with more text or with larger size text, but I don't want the wasted 2-3" at the bottom. I'm sure this is a simple problem, but I can't work it out! Thanks, anyone! PS Office XP, Microsoft ME, Epson C42UX I thought my problem was sorted (No offence/rudeness intended, Taff36, I?ve cocked up something!)I think (I?ve been playing around with so many settings, trying to sort this out, I can?t be too sure exactly what I did when) I changed the header/footer settings and all seemed ok ? full-size 12pt, headers, all printed to 2cm short of bottom of paper.

Answer:print preview different from printed text - again!

As no one has replied... Why don't you get a page set up as you want and save it. If you are going to use this same setup several times to avoid the software reverting to the default, save it say 20 times as a blank page. Then you can copy your 'over-wide pages' to one of these. Then as you use up your 'bank' of blanks replace then. This is probably the long way round, but at least you'll go back to the top and someone elsemay well have the answer.

Answer:print preview different from actual printed text

I assume you are using WORD (Version?)Two things to check. First in page set up that the margins are set to make full use of the page and that the header and footer settings are set to the minimum. This would explain why you have margins set outside the printable page (i.e.they are beyond the limits of your printer). If the footer is set too high you may get the big gap at the bottom of every page.Secondly check that the paper size is set correctly. Not to "letter" instead of A4 for example.

I'm trying to resolve a problem for a client who is using Outlook 2000. They use the HTML format in their emails as they have a nifty signature and use other HTML options. They also print these emails. When they print, the formatting of the email is different from what is on the screen. Once I switch the email to plain text, the onscreen appearance resembles the printout, but the signature is also converted leaving a mess. There is no line wrapping on the printout (in HTML mode) either and some parts are printed off the page.

Answer:Printer deletes documents before they are printed

G'day steviejay, sounds like you have an intelligent printer that is censoring your output!
That is a worry, I haven't seen that problem previously.
You might try having a look in your control panel, system, devices or device manager, with a bit of luck when you scroll down through all your devices you will find a USB printer, (assuming yours is usb) if you open that item you should see something like "this devise is working properly" which is a good start for troubleshooting.
There should be no yellow exclamation marks on this item.
Are you quite sure your print queue in the print manager is being actually deleted?
What kind of printer is it?
The assumption is that it is a PC using a windows variant.
Cheers, qldit.

Hi, one of my clients is using the Epson ex 330 dot matrix printer on a windows xp sp 2 machine. Now this printer stopped working on this machine since the 24 pin port on the motherboard got spoilt. So I tried to connect this printer to this machine using a USB to parallel port converter. Now the thing is that the printer is added but when I try to give a test page print or any other print the print spooler shows 1 doument printing. But within 3 seconds it disappears and prints nothing with no error message. Another thing is that this printer used to run on the Epson LX 800 driver since there is no EX 300 driver is the default drivers list. And now I have added it on the same i.e LX 800 driver. But I don't think this should be any sort of problem. Expert help is appreciated. Thanks!!

I don't know which program one does the printing in my PC .I can see 4 to 6 names like hp deskjet 1180,HP Deskjet 1120c,HP officejet 5600 series fax,Hp officejet 5600 and Microsoft Office Document Image Writer.The most likely one that does the printing is Hp officejet 5600(minus the 'fax' word at the end) since that is the one I click on everytime I want to print something.

In terms of Adobe Acrobat Reader or Microsoft Paint,if I want to delete any recently opened files,all I have to do is run Regedit and search using the name of a recently opened file like "Receipt" or "Yellow flower" and then I can delete all the rest of the recently opened files with it.It doesn't work with the printer programs as nothing shows up when I type the name of a recently Printed file.Either the print program 5600 really doesn't store the data or is there an alternate way of finding data of the recently printed documents?

Is there any way anyone can suggest to me to find all the data of the recently printed documents so I can delete them?

I have an HP LaserJet 1020 attached to a WinXP Pro workstation via USB. I have an Intel iMac networked with the PC wirelessly. I can detect the LaserJet on the iMac just fine, and on the iMac, documents spool and even say they have printed (they show up in the "completed" section of the printer control panel).

So, the iMac thinks the document printed, but it never did. When I look at the print queue on the Windows machine, I see "Remote Downlevel Document" in it. I assume that the iMac is printing to a port instead of starting the Windows Print Spooler, and this is why it is showing up with this name.

When viewing the LaserJet's queue on WinXP, the downlevel document is "Printing," and "113k/113k" has been transferred. But the document never prints - if I try to "cancel" the document in the Windows print queue, it says "deleting" for a verrrrry long time. Documents can be printed just fine locally on the Windows workstation.

I went to my printer, properties, Advanced and then unselected that box. Clicked "Apply" and "Ok."

Answer:Printer error: "Keep printed documents"

Sometimes, for a changed setting to take effect, you need to shut down, and restart the computer for it to take effect.
Like when you get some new programs, as they need to write to the registry.
Untick the box, again, click apply, again, shut down and restart.

I was doing some research for a book I'm writing and was copying and pasting material into a Word file. I noticed that the words were automatically being deleted from the bottom and the top. At first I thought it was a virus but after a Norton and Trend antivirus check, it likely wasn't. Someone told me it might have been a macro from a site not wanting people to do what I was doing. Has anyone heard of this? Also since I'm only getting the text as ideas for the plot of a fiction book, I'm not using the material for illegal purposes. Is there any way to know what web sites would have this activation?

Thanks so much for any help.

I have to type reports in Word 2007 (with Vista). The 1st page header is my letterhead. The first page contains info such as client names, file numbers, etc. Once I type in the name and file number on the first page, I would like for it to repeat in the header of the second page. There may or may not be other places in some report formats where the name has to repeat, but it would be preformatted in several templates. Someone told me to use StyleRef, but I don't understand it.

I'm using Microsoft Word 2003 and I'm wondering if there is a way to take text that I've entered into one portion of a document and have it repeated in other portions. Sort of like, if I enter a persons name into a given space at the beginning of the document could I have that same name repeated in different places throughout the document. Then if I were to change it in one place it would change in all of the places.

Basically I'm looking to be able to set up certain areas of the document as variables and then just repeat the variables in other places. When the variable's value changes it would change all over. I've got a fairly large book from Microsoft press on Word 2003 and I can't seem to find a way to do this. Help?!

What exactly 'jumps backwards and forwards', is it the mouse or the webpage?

I know Google and some other Search Engines have a function in javascript where if you use the 'Up' or 'Down' arrow-key, it will select the next or previous search result.
Google's blue arrows: I hate it, turn it off! - State of Digital

For Google, the only way i know to disable it would be to disable 'Instant Search' or Javascript.
In my opinion though, it is a pretty useful feature if i do not have a mouse in hand.

Have a good day ^^.

I noticed this problem a while ago, and it has bugged me ever since. I first noticed it in Outlook and Word (2003) so I thought it might be an MS Office specific problem. Today I noticed it in my web browser (IE and Firefox) so I know it's a system problem.

Whenever I mark text as bold it will automatically display in italics as well. There is no way for me to make it not show in italics as well on my laptop. This bugged me the most today when I was designing a website. I coded a headline to appear as bold, and it automatically appeared as italics as well in both Dreamweaver and my browsers. Without changing the code I went to my other computer, and the text appeared properly, just bold, no italics.

I've got quite a bit of computer experience but I'm really at a loss with this one.

I was taking notes in class and all of a sudden my screen display shrunk (display not going all the way to sides and top/bottom). I freaked out and restarted my computer in the hopes it would change back. Now, the display and text appears blurry and stretched, and the system settings won't let me change back to 1280 x 800 (it's stuck at 1152 x 864 for some reason).

It seems there used to be a windows interface for the clipbrd.exe utility but if there is one in Windows 10 I cannot find it.
I am trying to add 2 <cr> (line break) or <Enter> characters to the end of anything I put in the clipboard before it gets pasted back. Since different applications appear to treat pasted items differently I would prefer to have them even if they are "extra" or in addition to any added by pasting into a particular program. 99% of the time, I am pasting to Notepad. But it seems that i get the same results no matter what i paste to or copy from. The text or image that is copied always pastes to everything with no break. If i click Paste (or Ctrl+v) twice in a row I get the items or text exactly side by side, no "eof" marker or anything else.
When trying to copy text to create a "list" it requires clicking <Enter> twice after each paste to get it double spaced. Or at least once to keep it from not even going to the next line. In windows 7 it seems the default action included a line-feed after the paste and it was an issue to try to strip out the <cr>'s. Is there any way to get them back in Windows 10?

Hi,

My VBA/Macro knowledge is very basic, but I am able to record macros and edit them. I have a scatter plot (with 5 series) and I want to automatically change the line style (i.e. solid or dashed etc.) depending on the text in a cell. This is what I tried, but I cannot get the code to reference the cell which contains the text:

--------------------------------------------------------------

Sub Macro14()
'
' Macro14 Macro
'
'
ActiveSheet.ChartObjects("Chart 1").Activate
ActiveChart.SeriesCollection(1).Select
With Selection.Format.Line
.Visible = msoTrue
.DashStyle = msoLineSolid
End With
End Sub
--------------------------------------------------------------

For the line ".DashStyle = msoLineSolid" I tried ".DashStyle = Range("A7").Select" but this does not work.

Is there a simpler way to set-up a macro to format graphs automatically based on a cell content/format/colour, does anyone know a good guide to do this?

Thanks

Upgraded from Win ME to Win 2000 Pro the other day. Have SP4 update patch installed and all the other updates......

Under WinME, printing from any package to the printer would automatically switch it on and print.

Now, using Win 2000 Pro, I have to switch the printer on first before I can print to it. This is a bit of a pain....

I figure I can't be the only person trying to do this. Is anyone aware of script that can help automate this process?

Due to the nature of software used to track all print jobs, installing the printer on the server and then sharing from there is not an option.

Thanks in advance!

The printer is a Hewlett Pakard Laserjet 4100 and the machine its connected to has Win2k service pack 4 .Everyday at around 2pm the printer starts printing whether Im using it or not.Its been doing this for about 3 weeks now.I end up having to unplut it or stop the process.Any suggestions on what option Im overlooking thats causing it to do this?

Answer:Printer Automatically Prints at the same time everyday

Do you have some documentation (print, CD-ROM, PDF, HP's website, etc.) on that printer?  Have you thoroughly looked at the features in the printer software, accessing it from Windows Control Panel?  I have a Canon BJC-3000 that I owned for several years before I discovered that I could set it to automatically power on when a print command is issued.  Prior to that, I always manually turned it on.

Hi all,

I am using Symantec Winfax Pro 10 in windows xp (tried in windows 2000 too) which is configured to print automatically after receive. The faxes are NOT printing automatically to the shared printer (tried with different printers). if I connect the printer directly to the computer with Winfax, then it will print automatically. But, When i share it from other computers, it shows error message "Unable to print to .... printer. The printer is not available"

Is there any solution for this?

thanks in advance

I have this very annoying problem that has been very irritating for a while now and I cant find a solution so please can someone help?!
When I print from Outlook 2003 to my HP officejet pro 8000 wireless, the right hand side of the first page only gets cut off! Now i work for a reasonably large firm and we have a couple of the same set ups, each one doing exactly the same. So here is what i have tried:
I've tried changing our email template to see if that made any difference.
I've changed printer margins in both Outlook and Internet Explorer.
I've tried cleaning printer heads, although the printers are fairly new.
I've tried changing the paper orientation and page setup, still nothing.
I've extensively looked online for a solution, but everything i've tried hasn't worked!
I'm using Windows XP with SP3. Any more suggestions would be very appreciated!
thanks in advance.

Question: Printer text size?

Hello all! Just recently my printers text size changed whenever I print something off the internet, it's much larger than it use to be. I have not installed any new programs, so I'm thinking maybe some program updated itself and caused this to happen. My question is how do I change the print text size to smaller?

I bought a Canon Pixma 6210D that turns out to be very good for printing photos, but that's not what I bought it for. So, the black cartridge, a CL 52 has not only black, but cyan and magenta . . . which means that I can't refill the cartridges, perhaps . . . and if I do, god knows what will happen to the sensors.

1. Is there a workaround for this problem, or do I just use it for printing photos (for which it was intended).

2. Can someone recommend a good printer that can be used for printing text?

Thanks for what ever suggestions you can provide,

xico
