Default Printing problems

I'm having some problems printing documents, I've had a similar problem with documents in Drawplus, the problem being only about half the document prints and it generally fades out about halfway down the page. I've tried changing the rasterization settings (which worked for a while but after a few pages went back to fading out) and have no problems with other programs (apart from the other serif program mentioned!) so I believe it's a problem with the program itself.

I've tried printing the page out again and it fades out at a similar point so it's nothing to do with ink level (which I've had no warnings about anyway)

Help me please!

Thanks!

What did you change them to? Dis you check "Rasterize entire page"?

If Geoff's suggestion doesn't work, try publishing to pdf and if the pdf looks OK then print the pdf, does the same thing happen?

What exactly didn't work?

Is the pdf okay when you view it on your pc
If so did you print it from your pdf reader (Adobe or whatever)
Did it again fade part way down.

If so it would appear to indicate a printer problem.
