    MS Word 2016 displays doc properly, but boxes appear when printing


    I just printed several 200+ page documents and somebody noticed that the document is riddled with boxes. This seems to happen only on pages that have Thai characters on them. The document is used in a bilingual school so they are all a mixture of English & Thai. Here's a pic below:

    It happens when printing to paper or to PDF. I copied the page into Wordpad and it printed fine, without the boxes. Several of my coworkers who use PCs with Win10 don't have this problem. I'm the only one using Win10 on a Surface Pro (the most recent one, released in 2017).

    Everything displays properly. It's only when I go to print that the boxes appear.

    :)
