  1. I have inserted my picture in the upper left corner of my page. It is within the margins set for the page. I have the picture formatted so that I can type a line of text next to the picture.

    Everything looks fine on the screen. But when I print the page, the picture has disappeared.

    I have tried to print the picture without any text – the picture prints fine. But as soon as I add the text and try to print the page again, the picture disappears from the printed copy. It looks fine on the screen – it just doesn’t print.

    Am I doing something wrong?
