WordPerfect Printing Format issue

I have a user using WordPerfect x4. She formats a doc in WP. When she prints it the format is completely different than the way she set it up in WP. When she looks at the saved doc from another machine she sees it incorrectly formatted as well.

She has a Windows 7 machine.
Any help would be appreciated.

WordPerfect is set to show you what "your" printer would print.  I am guessing that they have different printers.  

Find the setting(s) that meet your needs.
1. Set the option to not use printer metrics.
Tools > Settings > Convert > Compatibility > Do not format document using printer metrics
2. Unset the Reformat option.
Tools > Settings > Environment > General > Reformat document for the WordPerfect default printer on open
3. Use the same printer and print driver.
4. Save the file with the fonts embedded in File > SaveAs > select option box, Embed fonts Using TrueDoc (TM)
5. Send the file as a PDF, not WPD.
