Paragraph Shading Shifted Upward on UK Paper Size in Word

5.00 5.50 6.00
Using Microsoft Word versions 5.00 and 5.50 on a PostScript printer, paragraph shading is shifted upward approximately 1.5 lines when the following conditions occur:
- Printing in landscape
- Selecting UK Paper Size (11.69 inches wide, 8.27 inches long)
This problem can be corrected by modifying the POSTSCRP.PRD printer driver using the MAKEPRD utility, as follows:
In the POSTSCRP.PRD text file, you will see four items that say LinedrawAdjust: 60.
- Change the 60 to 390 and be sure to keep a space after the number. This large number will push the shading down approximately 1.5 lines to match up with the border.
- Use MAKEPRD to convert the text file back to a PRD file.
Unfortunately, if you change your paper size back to United States size, the shading will now be pushed down by 1.5 lines. Two PRD files should be kept, a POSTUS.PRD and a POSTUK.PRD, one for each of the different paper sizes.
