Perhaps its just me being a tired twat ( been sorting out a big problem with my forum for hours after a moderator screwed things up royally and am brain tired ) but can someone tell me how to change the default printer in Word 7
It keeps reverting to 'print to PDF file' and I have to change it to the the printer set as default in Windows every time

Since 1996, had Elddis/Swift/Rapido/Rimor/Chausson MHs. Autocruise/Globecar PVCs/Compactline i-138
Does this help?

Do you use pdf rather than printing for a lot of stuff? If so and you've got a tick for "allow Windows to manage my default printer" then it could be overriding what you want, this is the setting on my version of windows, unfortunately I haven't got 7 on a machine so can't see if its on there too:

I've experienced this problem and as suggested it is probably Windows over-riding what you set in Office. Check what default printer is selected in Windows.

If that doesn't work try one of these. :)

Desperate measures and all that but........
Fired up word changed the default font, changed the printer for the doc and saved it normal.doc
Closed it down and opened again... and it worked !
