In Word 2010, my text looks slanted. If I print it out it is slanted. If I send somebody the Word doc, it is not slanted for them. Any ideas???

Sounds as if your Normal style is set to italics. Another user, whose Normal style was not italicized, would view the same document without italics.

Proof of concept would be to have someone create a document using the Normal style, show that it does not appear italicized on their machine, and then have them send it to you. Unless they embedded their Normal style in the document, the same text should appear italicized when viewed on your machine.

When I say slanted, I dont mean the characters, I mean that the whole line of text is in a slant. If you held a ruler to it, it would cross through it.

Is your office on a hill?

Just kidding. In that case, it sounds as if you're dealing with a text frame that's been rotated slightly. Not sure how to accomplish that so it affects only your machine, unless the text frame can be added to your Normal style...or perhaps your Normal.dotm template? I'm sorry, you've run into something outside my area of expertise.

Here's a Microsoft link bragging on rotating text with text frames. By playing around with the settings, I was able to produce slanted text on my machine.

Can you use a different printer driver?

If you have only one printer,  try the 'Microsoft XPS Document Writer'.

What if you delete or rename Normal.dot and let Word create a new Normal.dot with default settings?

Hi,

If the document is OK on you screen, it sounds to me like a physical problem with your printer, perhaps with the paper feed. You may also have to adjust the print alignement...
