When you print a banner that contains border art, you may receive the following error message:
If you click OK, the banner is printed; however, the border art is not printed.
If you click Cancel, the banner is not printed.
When you send a publication to the printer, each separate object in the border art is added together to create one large metafile object.
A limit exists on the size of metafile objects that Publisher can print. When you place a border around the edges of a banner, you may exceed this limit if you print the banner at a high resolution.
This issue has been reported to occur when you print banners that contain border art at a print resolution of 600 dots per inch (DPI) or higher.
To work around this issue, use one of the following methods.
Print your banner at a lower print resolution.
Microsoft recommends that you reduce the print resolution to 300 DPI or lower.
Reduce the dimensions of the border art objects.
Microsoft recommends that you reduce the dimensions of the border art objects by about two inches on each side. After you reduce the dimensions of the border art objects, attempt to print the banner again.
If you continue to receive the error message mentioned in the "Symptoms" section of this article, reduce the dimensions of the border art objects by an additional amount, and then attempt to print the banner again.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Publisher 2000.
