Hi,
I am using office 2007. I noticed that all my power point files content are marked with a black stripe which makes it hidden. I am not able to create new ppt files too. I tried reinstalling office 2007 ... everything is working fine except powerpoint in office suite. I have enclosed a print screen for reference. I am able to see my ppt files correctly when viewed in another pc. I run virus scann too and using kaspersky.

This is an issue with your printer driver. See How to install a TEST printer driver

I believe that SP2 for Office 2007 made a number of improvements in this area also. It's worth installing.

I used to work with barcode printers from Zebra and had changed to generic text printer for test purpose. When I moved to a normal printer it worked. Thanks
