Comment balloons will not print. I have a document that has insertions and deletions in the text and comments in balloons in the right margin. When I try to print it, the space is there in the right hand margin to accommodate the balloons but the balloons don't print. They show up in the Word Print Preview.Here's what works for me. It is still annoying, but at least I can get the comments to print in the shaded area on the paper to match the print preview. This works for me for printing to PDF, to a networked HP, and to a networked Xerox Mobile Express driver. I hope it works for you, too.

You can save the graphic, or just paste it into Word or PowerPoint.
As a single graphic, the sizing and position of the subcomponents cannot change.

This view has the paragraph, page, and section breaks shown. That can be helpful to show you where those are, and to avoid accidently deleting them.
|Insert the figure into the landscape. You can adjust its size, but if it is a map, do not adjust the aspect ratio.|
|Put a caption below the figure. It is easiest to just put in a line of text. While Word has other options, they have high odds of giving you problems as you edit, and almost guarantee problems if you want to try electronic edits with a collaborator (or supervisor).|
