How do you poster print in Word? I would like to be able to create a document and have it print onto 9 different sheets of paper to create a poster. For example, if the document just contained 1 photo the size of the whole document, when it printed, it would print sort of like a puzzle with parts of it on 9 different pieces of paper that I would be able to tape together to form a big poster.

As mentioned previously, Word is not the best application for your requirements; Publisher, PowerPoint or any other graphic application would do better.

But saying that, if you must use Word, then create it as you need, then convert to a PDF. Then using Acrobat itself you do get the option to Print to “Tile Large Pages” which will give you options to split the one page across many pages.

There are other PDF creating software not just Adobe (some are free) but I do not know if they also have this facility.

Hope this helps

I have a Laserjet L7680 connected to my wireless router so that my wife can print wirelessly from her laptop, and I also so I can print from mine.

Oddly, though, when she attempts to print from Microsoft Word (2007), only parts of the printout are completed.

I can print fine from my MacBook Pro, and from my Dell desktop, and she can print from Firefox and from Notepad, it seems, but now MS Word 2007 is misbehaving, and it’s driving me batty.

I have the network set up via the Network Magic Pro software (which greatly simplified the process), and there does not appear to be any problem with the network. As I said, this seems to be a problem linked to MS Word (I have the full Office 2007 suite), and though there are workarounds (ie. don’t use Word!), I’d much rather get my money’s worth with that expensive piece of software!!

I have looked at the printer settings within Word, but do not see anything that would cause this problem. Also, sometimes the printout will contain 10 lines of the document, other times 2 lines, other times nothing at all.

The ink heads are fine, and everything prints perfectly from the desktop.

She uninstalled Office and reinstalled it tonight, to no avail. She has printed from Word in the recent past with no problem, btw.

Help! I am baffled. please give me some clues on what to look for!

As I lay in bed last night, I recalled that I noticed the Windows Firewall had been turned off on my desktop PC, so I switched it on.

I came downstairs, turned it off, and asked my wife to re-send the file for printing, and it worked beautifully.

So, in conclusion. Windows Vista’s firewall, made by Microsoft, kept a Microsoft Word document from printing. But not completely. Just partially.

Makes no sense to me, but now things work, so that’s all that matters!

Sometimes it’s the little things that trip you up like figuring out how to print text in reverse. Some people call this mirror text. I’m not trying to imitate Leonardo Da Vinci and his mirror fonts. Instead, I was trying to help someone do a t-shirt transfer that included a quote. It turns out there are multiple ways to solve this problem ranging from your printer to Microsoft Word Art.

If you’ve ever tried to use one of those heat transfer papers to make a t-shirt or print a “secret” message for a kid that can be read in the mirror, you know this problem. I’m sure there are other uses for reverse fonts that escape me. The scenario did make me think of different ways to tackle this problem.

Check your Printer Properties

Many printers have a feature that reverses the output. The problem is there doesn’t seem to be a consistent name for this feature. In fact, when I went to the HP site, they provided many names for this feature including:

  • back print
  • flip horizontal
  • mirror image
  • reverse

I have an HP DeskJet 6940 and it does have this mirror printing feature although you have to hunt for it. I had to click into the Printer Properties and then go to the Finishing tab.

Use an Online Reverse Text Generator

There are a number of online sites that allow you to type your text and get the text that you need. From there, you can copy and paste the text into the program you need for final editing. One mirror text generator that I found useful is from TextMechanic.

How to print on a shirt using microsoft word 2007

As you can see from the buttons above, the site provides lots of options for altering your text. If you’re in a silly/devious mood you can copy the results and paste into your email app or word processor and see how people react. One caveat is that you can only do 4 tasks per hour.

Also, if you paste the output into an application like Microsoft Word, be prepared for a bunch of red squiggly lines if you have spell-check enabled.

Reverse Text with Microsoft Word

By default, Microsoft Word doesn’t have the means to reverse text. However, you can rotate objects using WordArt. In this example, I’m using Word in Microsoft 365.

  1. From the Insert menu and Text section, select WordArt.
  2. From the drop-down menu, select your color combination.
  3. Type or paste your text into the text box.
  4. With your cursor in the textbox, click Shape Format.
  5. From the Shape Styles section, click Shape Effects and 3-Rotation.
  6. From the side menu, select 3-D Rotation options…. The Format Shape dialog opens to the right.
  7. From the Format Shape dialog, click 3D Rotation.
  8. In the Rotation section, enter 180 for the X: value.
  9. Click the X button on the top-right to close the dialog.

info As a suggestion, make sure you proofread your text before it becomes reverse text.

Flip Images in Microsoft Word

When it comes to reversing images, the process is a bit different but easily achievable.

  1. Insert or paste your image.
  2. Click image to select it.
  3. From Picture Format, click the Rotate Object button in the Arrange Group.

Rotate Object button

  1. Select Flip Horizontal from drop-down menu.

Q: Why is my text not aligned when I add a page to the file?

A: When manually typing the badge information using a blank template, the page spacing will slightly shift every time you add a new page. This means, the information on the badges will not be in the correct area on the pages following the first sheet. However, Microsoft Word will automatically add the correct spacing between pages when using a Mail Merge. If you will be making more than one sheet of badges inserts, we recommend you perform a Mail Merge.

A: If you do not know what version of the Word program you are currently using, please follow these steps to verify that information:

  • From the main menu, select Help.

Microsoft print to PDF is a little late to the party but with the introduction of Windows 10, they have finally introduced a print to PDF feature that all major operating systems had. macOS and Linux had been allowing users to do this for a very long time. This means that if you are using a printable application such as Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, you can now make use of the Microsoft Print to PDF feature to create a PDF document out of your Microsoft application file.

The process is quite easy as we shall see very shortly and quite effective, although as we shall also see shortly, there are some problems to overcome if this is how you intend to print to PDF. In this article, we take a critical look at this new feature and provide you with an even easier and more effective alternative for the “Microsoft Print to PDF” feature.

Microsoft Print to PDF in Word, Excel and PowerPoint

Each one of the three Microsoft applications allows for printing to PDF, in its own way. Let’s take a look at how to do this for each one, individually.

How to Use Microsoft Word Print to PDF

To print Microsoft Word to PDF you first of all need to open the file you would like to print in the Microsoft Word application. Once this is done, follow these simple steps.

  • Step 1: Hit “Ctrl + P” on your keyboard or click on “File” and then select “Print”.
  • Step 2: This will open the print window. Click on the drop-down menu under “Printer” and from the options presented select “Microsoft Print to PDF”. Here, you can also select other settings such as the number of pages to print. This will print Word to PDF and in essence create another file that is in PDF format.

How to print on a shirt using microsoft word 2007

How to Use Microsoft Excel Print to PDF

To Print Microsoft Excel to PDF, you essentially have to follow the same process. First, begin by opening the excel file you wish print PDF and then follow these simple steps.

  • Step 1: Again click on “File” and then choose “Print”. Or even hit Ctrl + P on your keyboard to open the “Print” menu.
  • Step 2: In the pop-up window after clicking “Printer”, find “Microsoft Print to PDF” and select it. Then the Excel file could be created to a PDF document.

How to print Microsoft PowerPoint as a PDF

PowerPoint Presentation(PPT) can be also printed as a PDF with the same method. Or some other ways can also be implemented. It could be done even without your PPT file opened.

  • Step 1: Select the PPT file you want to print, then right-click and select the “Print” item on the drop-down menu.
  • Step 2: In the new window, choose “Microsoft Print to PDF”. Once you are done, you will have created a PDF of your PowerPoint Presentation that you can now save or print.

Serious Problems with Microsoft Print to PDF

There are several problems that you may encounter when trying to create PDF using this method, the following are just 3 of the most prominent ones.

1. This can only work in Windows 10
If you are using Windows 7 or 8, it is practically impossible for you to be able to do this. The feature is only available for Windows 10. So if you want to print to PDF in Microsoft, you have to upgrade to Windows 10.

2. No creative control
Once the PDF has been created this way, you will be unable to edit it in any way unless you use a third-party editing tool. The solution to this problem is to use a third-party tool that is can be used to edit the PDF after it has been created.

3. You cannot combine different formats
If for instance, you wanted to create a PDF out of all three file formats, you would have to create each one separately and then combine them using a third-party tool. The solution is to use a program that allows you to combine the different file formats to create one large PDF file.

A Better Solution than Microsoft Print to PDF

The Microsoft print to PDF feature is long overdue and very handy. The only problem is that there are several problems as we have seen above. If you would rather bypass all of the problems and create a PDF easily, you need the best PDF management software in the business. This PDF software is PDFelement, a program that is designed to make it easier for you to not only create a PDF but also easily manage all aspects of a PDF.

  • You can use it to create a PDF from a single file just as we have done with Microsoft Print to PDF or you can use the “Combine” feature to easily create a PDF from all of these formats.
  • After creating the PDF, you can easily edit the document. The program allows you to add image and text to the created PDF. You can also delete some of the text on the document and remove any images.
  • The program also gives you the ability to annotate the document any way you want. This means that you can strikethrough text, highlight text and even add comments and notes to the PDF.

Video Tutorial – How to Print Stickers in Microsoft Word

In the video, I explain how to resize the stickers in Microsoft Word and how to print them to fit your planner. The video explains the same steps I’m discussing on this tutorial. Scroll down to read the instructions and then come back to watch the video if you need help understand any of the steps.

How to Print Stickers in Microsoft Word

1. Open Microsoft Word and save the document. In the toolbar select the layout option > orientation > select landscape and in the margins, select narrow.

2. Save this graph grid guide on your computer. In the toolbar of Microsoft Word, select design > watermark > picture > select the grid guide that I told you to save on your computer.

How to print on a shirt using microsoft word 2007

3. Make sure to unselect the washout option and to set the scale to auto.

How to print on a shirt using microsoft word 2007

This is how your grid guide should look like, now print this page and follow the next steps.

How to print on a shirt using microsoft word 2007

4. Using the grid page find the edges of your planner. The pink line on the left of the paper marks where the page of my planner ends and the pink line on the right of the image shows the crease of the planner.

I’m going to use the yellow line from the image as a guide to know how big I’m going to make the title for the month of May. On the grid paper, I’m selecting 2 big squares from the middle as a reference for step 8.

How to print on a shirt using microsoft word 2007

5. Find the stickers that you want to add to your planner and save them to your computer. I save all my stickers in iCloud, Dropbox, and OneDrive to have access to them on my iPad and computer.

How to print on a shirt using microsoft word 2007

6. Go to the folder where you saved your stickers and drag one of the stickers into Microsoft Word.

How to print on a shirt using microsoft word 2007

7. Right-click on the sticker sheet (image) and select the crop option.

How to print on a shirt using microsoft word 2007

Using the black lines from the corners of the image, select the sticker that you want to use from the sticker sheet.

8. Remember that in step 4 I had a yellow line covering 2 big squares on the paper. Using the yellow line from the paper in step 4 I’m going to make sure that the sticker with the word May covers 2 big squares in the grid guide that I have in Microsoft Word.

9. Now repeat steps 6 to 8 by dragging, cropping, and resizing the stickers in Microsoft Word.

10. Once you have all the stickers that you want to print in the Microsoft Window make sure to remove the watermark (guide paper) before printing the stickers. In the toolbar of Microsoft select design > watermark > no watermark. That’s it! Now print your stickers.

How to print on a shirt using microsoft word 2007

Note: You can print the stickers on sticker paper or you can just cut them and glue them to your bullet journal.

11. Cut the stickers into long rectangles like on the image below > turn the paper over and outline the sticker with a pencil. Drawing an outline on the back of the paper will help you cut the stickers neatly with the scissors.

How to print on a shirt using microsoft word 2007

12. Use a small pair of scissors to have more control over the paper.

13. I use Elmer’s purple disappearing glue as it friendly on the pages of my planner. If I glue the paper in the wrong position I can remove it and put it in the correct position. Also when the glue dries you won’t see it in the paper as it disappears once it dries.

How to print on a shirt using microsoft word 2007

If you accidentally put glue on the front of the sticker wait for it to dry and use a clean eraser to remove the excess glue.
