Print failures in Word for Mac, Excel for Mac or Power point for Mac
Step 1: Test Printing in a new document
Damaged documents or documents that contain damaged graphics or damaged fonts can cause print errors. Before you reinstall drivers or software, test the program's ability to print.
*Open a new blank document in Word.
*On the first line of the document, type the following text: =rand(10)
*Press ENTER. This inserts 10 paragraphs of sample text.
*Try to print the document.

*If the document prints successfully, change to a different font, or insert clip art, a table, or a drawing object.

To change the font, follow these steps:
*Use your pointing device to select your sample text.
*Click Font.
*In the Font list, click to select a different font.
To insert clip art, follow these steps:
*Click the Insert menu, select Picture and then click Clip Art.
*On the Clip Art task pane, leave the Search text box blank, and then click.
*Right-click one of the pictures, and then click Insert.
*Close the Clip Art task pane .
To insert table, follow these steps:
*Click Table, and then click Insert then Table.
*Type the number of columns and rows that you want, and then click OK.
To insert a drawing object, follow these steps:
*Click Insert, and then click Picture then select AutoShapes.
*Click one of the shapes. Draw the shape in the document.

If application cannot print at all, or application cannot print a certain font or a certain type of graphic, go to Step 2.

Step 2:Print from another program
Try printing from different Office for Mac applications. If Word is not printing try Excel.
When you transfer a document to the Preview program by following these steps, the document is converted to a PDF file:

*In the Print dialog box, click Preview.
*When the document appears in the Preview program, click Print on the File menu.
*In the Print dialog box, verify that a printer is selected and that the settings under Saved Settings are appropriate for that printer. Then, click Print.

If the Preview program cannot open your document, but it can print other documents without any problems, try to save your document as a PDF file. Saving the document as a PDF file tests the ability of the printer driver to output data to a file. To do this, follow these steps:

*Open the document that you are having trouble printing. On the File menu, click Print.
*In the Copies & Pages list, click Output Options.
*In the Output Options area, select the Save as File check box. In the Format list, click PDF, and then click Save.
*In the Save dialog box, type a name, and then select a location for the file. Click Save.
*Try to print the PDF file by using the Preview program.
Print from TextEdit

*Quit all applications
*On the Go menu, select Applications.
Double-click TextEdit, type some text, and then try to print the document. If Text Edit cannot print, either the printer driver or the printer may be causing the problem.
