Hiya, having problems printing a Word 2007 doc with a page colour fill gradient added. If I chose Horizontal, Vertical or Diagonal fill gradient it prints with stripes, rather than with a graceful gradient. If I chose From Corner it prints with a tiled effect. It does this with one, two or three colours, and with the preset gradients. The page doesn't look striped or tiled on screen or in print preview. I am printing from my HP PC to my HP Photosmart C5380 printer. I am using Windows XP. Other peeps, not with HPs, have also asked about this striped/tiled problem on other help web pages without a successful answer. I'm hoping someone can help here please if poss. Thank you :)

    Have you checked your print quality on the printer? Have you enabled the option in Word to print background images? Hope this helps! -Schmidtw

    Yes and yes, everything else prints fine, can print any other background effect, just not a decent gradient fill, ie one that isn't striped or tiled. Thank you for your response and troubleshooting suggestions Schmidtw, much appreciated :)

    I am having the same problem! Also, when I try to create a PDF from the Word doc, it shows up with the striipes! Very frustrating.

    I, too, am experiencing the same problem. I was hoping I would find some answers here. Maybe this is an undocumented feature :)
