While printing, space between words get deleted in MS Word

I have no printers installed on my system (and have not had in the past in this installation of Windows 7 64 bit, so there is nothing to clean). My system is fully managed (I have a site called TweakGuides.com - I know how to keep a Windows system in optimal conditions).

I also disabled a range of options in Word to ensure that the basic documents are kept as basic documents, free smart tags and other unnecessary data embedded. I even disable all functions of self-correction as a matter of routine.

I still think that any document created in Word 2010 display arbitrarily absent spaces when view in Word 2007. It makes no dissimilarity if I can save the document in compatibility mode on or off, frequently spaces will disappear. If I can see the document using Windows Wordpad, I can see that the spaces have not been efficiently eliminate, by what appears to be a trouble in Word 2007-specific.

As such, I am convinced that it is a compatibility error, as in Word 2010 itself these deletions space never appear, only when viewed or edited in Word 2007. This is quite serious as you can imagine, because it means that the documents sent to people who use Office 2007 (a large proportion of users of Word) are neglected as a result. Editing them is also useless, because as soon as it is saved in Word 2010 and sent back a similar number of spaces are removed randomly.

re: While printing, space between words get deleted in MS Word

I've had no problem running with all functions of Word 2003, 2007 and now 2010. In Word 2010, including the Print tab just says no printer. Selecting it, or select a print function anywhere in Windows it takes me a message to configure a printer, I can cancel. So there is no explicit third driver for the printers are installed on this system, that's for sure. Therefore the error can be even with the generic printer device Office.

re: While printing, space between words get deleted in MS Word

Now I've found a number of documents that I created in the last month using Word 2010 and have the same problem in Word 2007 - either short or long, with minimal formatting or complex, or has been created as a target for new documents in Word 2010 or documents originally created in earlier versions of Word - blanks are dropped at random throughout the document.

re: While printing, space between words get deleted in MS Word

I cannot be the only person using Word without a printer, so I leave this information to others who may have the same problem. Word 2010 If you absolutely need a printer driver, you must install one yourself, even if a dummy driver. If previous versions of Word running without a printer driver installed explicitly, then this is a problem with Word 2010.

Either way, I'm not really asking for help as I know I can solve this by myself. I hope the team of the Word of realizing this mistake, and others seek to Google stumble on this thread and see the mistakes and solutions. If you have no more suggestion that "install a driver," then maybe you need to help others.

re: While printing, space between words get deleted in MS Word

I do not doubt your experience, but it seems to miss the point that I have not changed anything in this regard. Do not uninstall the printer drivers or "violin" for this to happen. Word 2007 worked quite well on my system. After installing Word 2010, only changing some options in Word to remove things like Smart Tags and AutoCorrect, and soon found that Word 2010 is already showing spaces randomly dropped when the document is viewed in Word 2007. In addition, Windows 7 has a default printer driver installed: the XPS Document Writer. With or without this device, with or without other similar device such as Acrobat 9, the fault persists. Are you suggesting that the chance to install a driver for a printer that does not exist on my machine? Are you suggesting that the word was only designed to be used in systems with printers?

re: While printing, space between words get deleted in MS Word

Open Word in Safe Mode and then see if you are facing the same problem. To open Word in safe mode, follow the steps below:
1) Click Start> Programs> Accessories> Run
2) Copy and paste the following command and press Enter:
WinWord / insurance
If the documents are printed properly with Word in security, disable the add (s) for Word 2010.
If the problem persists, change the default printer on the computer "XPS document writer to see if it prints correctly. For information on how to change the default printer in Windows 7.
If the documents are printed correctly "XPS document writer", install the latest printer driver for printer’s problem.

I believe this is a known issue with Word 2007 that was corrected with Office SP2.
