WordArt: Shaded Letters with Closed Areas Print Striped

Q101918



The information in this article applies to:


  • Microsoft WordArt, version 2.0
  • Microsoft Publisher 2.0





SYMPTOMS

In WordArt 2.0 objects, letters that contain closed areas (such as O, B, A, and P) may print striped. This problem occurs if you format them for a 50-percent shading and print them to a PostScript printer. Narrow horizontal white stripes appear in the letters that contain closed areas. These stripes do not display on the screen.



STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.



MORE INFORMATION

Steps to Reproduce Problem

  1. Create a WordArt object that includes some letters that have closed areas.
  2. Shade the letters 50-percent gray (the pattern in the second column of the second row in the Shading dialog box).
  3. Print the page to a PostScript printer.

The letters without closed areas print the 50-percent shading correctly, but the letters with closed areas contain horizontal white stripes.
