    creating in windows 8 and viewing in windows 7 problem


    For work I create church bulletins on my new Win 8 laptop. When viewed on a windows 7 or xp computer, the document is too big, even though it is created with the same font. I spent hours on the phone with Microsoft and they walked me through Publisher 2013, but that didn't help. I really think it has to do with the operating system. I have tried everything. No matter what OS I create the document in, it appears fine on the screen, but when viewed in anything lower than win 8, it needs to be tweaked to fit properly. I have even tried saving the doc. in earlier versions of publisher and that doesn't work. Any advise?

    Thanks,
    Suzanne

    the document is too big for the screen? or too big for the printer and not printing correctly?

    The document is larger when viewed in win 7 and when printed out. All of the articles that are included in the newsletter are larger and therefore appear incomplete as they are cut short. I'm at my wits end with this situation as not one helpdesk anywhere has been able to resolve this issue. I'm mobile most of the time and take my laptop. The document only works when done on my desktop. This isn't going to work for me.

    Thanks!

So I was thinking since a lot of people have strong opinions on loving, hating it, mixed or just don't care. What do you think would create a want for windows 8? Or for windows in general? I think for me a good way is to create better programs/ or metro apps for the touch based users. They also...
