1. Change in printer’s alters publication

Recently we have moved office. This move involved us taking our
original computers and hooking them up to a new server with Hewlett
Packard 2200 DTN printers (we used to use VERY old apple laser

We have a lot of work that have been created with templates that have
all the corporate styles set up with in them for the company that we
work for.

Once we got the old computers up and running on new server we removed
the old printer drivers and then installed the new HP network printer
drivers. Also I made sure that the correct PPD file was in the right
place so that it can be chosen in the PageMaker print menu.

The only problem we now have, (and to me it seems quite strange) is
that some of the documents that are currently work in progress which
have been created with the templates have had some of the page lay out
change when work has continued on them. When you go in to the document
and re-set the styles then the page layout returns.

At the moment this only seems to happen to the documents where the
PageMaker styles have been used to create the whole publication!

If any one could tell me what is happening then I would be most

Yours in Lame Need Nick…
