When you print an Excel chart that is embedded in another document, AutoShape borders appear thicker than they do if you print the same chart from Excel.
This problem occurs when you add an AutoShape to an embedded chart object, and you change the Weight setting of the AutoShape to 0 pt or 0.25 pt, to match the weight of the legend border.
