MS Word 2010 Dual Column Revision Bars Not Printing

I have a 2 column document with tracked changes.  I have my tracked changes set so that only the revision bars show on the right-hand side of each column.  Revision bars are there in page layout view and print preview, but when I print, Word ignores that there are two columns and shifts all revision bars to the right.

It doesn't matter which printer I print to (we have several here at work).  It also doesn't matter if I print or save to Acrobat (I have Pro XI).

Is there a setting I can change in MS Word?  I'm using Windows 7 Enterprise (SP-1) and Word Professional 2010.

Thanks for the help!

Hi Robin.  I am able to replicate this problem just as you stated it.  Printing to multiple printers and to pdf have the same results.  Changing the Change Lines to Left, Right, or Outside borders have no real affect on the position of the change lines that you would expect to see in the middle "margin" of the columns.

I am sorry that I don't have an answer for you but wanted to let you know that someone else is experiencing this issue as well.  I will continue to look for a solution, but I am not hopeful at this time.
