In Microsoft Excel, when you scroll through a zoomed document after youprint a file or view it in print preview, the characters that are off ofthe screen may appear much larger than the indicated size.
This problem may occur when you open a document that is zoomed to any sizeother than 100%, and when you then immediately print the document or viewit in print preview. Characters that did not appear on the screen beforeyou printed it or viewed it in print preview may appear much larger thanexpected if they are formatted differently than the characters thatappeared on the screen when you printed the document.
Formatting attributes that may not appear as expected include the font,size, underlining, or color.
To work around this problem, close the document and reopen it. To preventthis behavior from occurring, scroll through the document before you printit or before you view a it in print preview.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft productslisted at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problemand will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as itbecomes available.
