    It sounds like AbiWord has exposed some bugs in your printer drivers.

    A suggested work-around is to install ghostview from ghostgum and their
    printer re-director. This will produce postscript file for you. You could
    then try printing these postscript files with the ghostvoew program.

    Good Luck!

    Please tell us if this works. We often get printing complaints from
    Windows users that often caused by buggy drivers. I'd very interested to
    know if this work-around works because we could use it for many other
