When you print a master document in outline view, Microsoft Word
does not print as expected, for example:
- Word does not print objects set as Float over text that have been inserted into subdocuments.
- Word may not print the entire document.
Outline view is not designed to print your entire document. It is
designed for you to control the amount of detail you want to print.
Switch to either normal or print layout view, and then print the document.
Outline view helps you organize and maintain a long document, such
as a book or a multi-part report, that is divided into several smaller
documents called "subdocuments." In outline view, you can work in a
single document window and still see the overall organization of the
subdocuments. This view is not designed to print your entire document.
Outline view is designed for you to control the amount of detail
you want to print. For example, when you want to print just an outline,
collapse the information to show only what you want to print. When
you print from outline view, only what is shown on
the screen is printed.
