Superscript/Subscript in Table Truncated Printing to DeskJet PSS ID Number: Q101619 Article last modified on 11-30-1993

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a, 2.0a-CD, 2.0b, 2.0c - Microsoft Windows operating system version 3.1


Text with superscript or subscript formatting in a Word for Windows table may print truncated on a Hewlett-Packard (HP) DeskJet.


This problem occurs when you select a certain Super/Subscript By setting that may differ from one font to another because the DeskJet handles line spacing in a table as a fixed setting, even if you set line spacing to Auto. This happens when you use either the DeskJet printer driver included with Windows version 3.1 (HPDSKJET.DRV version 1.1), or DESKJETC.DRV version 3.0 from HP.

This does not happen when the superscript or subscript text is located outside a table in the document.

For example, for text in a Word table, if you apply superscript character formatting and select 4 pt in the By box, the superscript character prints truncated on the DeskJet.


Select a smaller setting in the Super/Subscript By box. For example, change the 4 pt setting to 2 pt. The smaller setting places the entire superscript or subscript character within the seemingly fixed line spacing.


This problem does not occur on other printers.
