Print menu grayed out in Outlook

Posted on 2005-04-08

After selecting "Print" from the "File" menu, I can print but all the options/settings in the print window that comes up are grayed out. What would cause this and how can it be returned to normal? BTW, this is a new system that just went out on the floor to a user. The print menu in other apps seems to be fine.

I'm sure it's something relatively simple and I'm just missing it. I think my brain has started the weekend early.

    This happens if you have "Memo Style" selected.  If you move the selection to table style, you will have the options back.

    I guess this is cause you cant print certain veiws (ie inbox list) in memo style ;-)
