Powerpoint charts move around on their own, and do not remain in place

Hello - we had a user ask us about this Powerpoiont issue - see his question below:

"Problem … I can’t get charts on my PPTs to remain in-position (see chart on slides 3 & 5 of the att’d)? I drop the data/chart on a slide, position them & then the next time I open up the PPT, they enlarge or move around? How can I get them to freeze & not move around?"

The user is on Windows 7 and Office 2010.  I am defering this to the PPT gurus out there.

Thanks for your help!

What kind of charts are these, exactly? Are they created in PPT 2010 itself? ("I drop the data/chart on a slide" could mean a lot of different things.)

I'd actually suspect the printer driver, believe it or not. http://www.pptfaq.com/FAQ00952.htm has a good set of specific steps to see if that's what is causing things to jump around.

You were right - it was something with the users printer driver.  Once they reinstalled their printer, it fixed it.  Thanks a lot.
