I got the following problem

1 of my clients sended me a ms office .doc file.
so I opened it with OOo

- perfect, it worked

now, I wanted to print the file.

- damn, there it goes wrong.
- after 4 lines, only 5 letters on each line is being printed, and they are criss-cross over the
- paper.

so I thought, than I will try solution #1. so I converted the .doc file to .sxw and tried to print again.

- to bad, again some problem.

Than it was time for option #2, I saved the .doc file as PDF file, I opened my PDF viewer (XPDF) and printed the pdf file

- great that works.

but still I got the problem, that I can't print that particular file in OOo.
Did anyone encountered such a problem before, and what are the good solutions for it, any setting?
