Expand all headings when printing a Microsoft Word document

I have a document set up with collapsed headings, so that it acts as a sort of Table of Contents. I like the way this looks and had no problem getting the headings to collapse by default. However, when I try to print the document I have to expand all of the headings before printing, or else it will only print that collapsed 1-page view. Is there a way to get Word to expand all headings when printing a document, so that I can skip the step of expanding and re-collapsing them myself?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It appears to be an issue. You can find some info on Microsoft’s site here but it seems you would need to file a request for future change suggestion.

    IT looks like it's a feature of Word 2013 or newer. What version are you using?

    Have you checked print preview before going for printing? Also MS Word version is required.

    You can try while there is an option which ensures that all headings are expanded as you open/ print a document. It is located at File > Options > Advanced: "Expand all headings when opening a document."

    However, this depends on version.

    I'm using Word 2016. No options I have found so far seem to work for what I want.

    @HamptonT, for what purpose did you ask for 'No options'? What options are you trying to work? MS Word 2016 is so many options.
