In Microsoft Project, when you print or print preview a project in the Gantt Chart view, text may be printed in front of Gantt Chart objects, although the text is displayed behind the Gantt Chart objects in the Gantt Chart view.

For example, when you view the Gantt Chart in Microsoft Project 2000, a deadline indicator may be drawn over a Gantt Bar's text. When you print or print preview the same Gantt Chart, the deadline indicator is drawn behind the Gantt Bar text.


This behavior may occur when you print or print preview a Gantt Chart view and the following conditions are true:
  • Text is displayed next to a Gantt bar.
  • The text is drawn in the same location as another Gantt Bar object.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
