MACINTOSH

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft PowerPoint for the Macintosh, version 3.0

SYMPTOMS

When a bar graph created with Graph in Microsoft PowerPoint is printed, one of the labels on the graph will not print. All the other labels will print properly. This error will occur using Apple LaserWriter driver 8.0.

RESOLUTION

The following are three alternative solutions to the problem:

  1. Use Apple LaserWriter driver 7.x.

    -or-

  2. Cut the graph and paste it as a picture. Then, double-click it to turn it into a PowerPoint object.

    -or-

  3. Place a text object on top of the graph with the appropriate label so it covers up the label that does not appear on the printout.
