PowerPoint 2007: printed text in graphics is jagged, graphics print in grayscale


When you print a slide that includes graphics or objects (charts, Excel content, etc) to a non-color printer, you may notice that the graphic or object prints in grayscale or at low resolution, and/or the text in the graphic or object gets jagged or jumbled.


This Microsoft Knowledgebase page has a workaround that may help:
