Publisher prints even pages blank though they show in Print Preview

I tried to print page 2 of a 4-page Publisher document I had just created. All I got was a blank page, even though the page showed in Print Preview.

So I went back and tried to print the complete document. What I got was Page 1, blank page, Page 3, blank page. It appears that anytime I try to print pages 2 or 4 whether individually or as part of a sequence, they only print blank.

I checked Printer Properties and nothing seemed out of the ordinary there.

Any suggestions?


I spoke too soon. The above fixed the problem until I edited the file. Then it recurred again.

The solution I finally found is this:

There were multiple photos in the file, mostly much larger than they needed to be and scaled down to fit, but that's what they were. I selected one of them, went into Picture Tools, and compressed all the photos. For now it seems to be working.
