Appleworks only prints first page? - Mac Applications & Software

I'd be most grateful for any sugestions to deal with Appleworks 6.2.7 not printing in MacOSX 10.1.5 on a graphite iMac 768Mb RAM 600MHz hooked straight up to a HP DeskJet 960c printer. Gist: Preview looks OK - but only the first page prints out. To my intense irritation! Over the last few weeks I've tried removing the printer, putting it back (Print Centre), re-installed the driver, re-booting the OS, with docs with just text in and photos etc. To no avail. Other aplications can manage OK - BBEdit, Explorer, Mozilla, Mail etc... TIA Torc -- TAKMEOOT to reply...

    I have some suggestions but no perfect solution.

    I experienced (still have some issues) much the same. The bug(s) must
    lie somewhere in OSX, Appleworks 6.24 & 6.27 and HP drivers.

    I have been through several drivers, and tried AW 6.24 & 6.27.

    My hardware:
    G4 450 & 933 both running 10.2.4 OSX
    HP Deskjet 832C USB printer
    After a mess of experimenting with mixed results:
    AW 6.24 might be somewhat less annoying in print problems but not sure
    HP driver 2.0 (that came with OSX Jag) seems best for me (2.0f maybe?)
    had tried 2.1 (just dl HP driver 2.21 but not tried yet)
    ====================
    When ready to print an AW doent go to PAGE SETUP
    set to your printer (not ANY PRINTER as it defaults)
    set to US LEGAL or custom made page size

    THEN print. It does print more reliably & predictably but still not
    perfectly clear just what margins etc will print.

    The default weird settings seem to keep coming back and can't be changed.
    ====================
    One bug reported (when just one page printed with AW) was on default the
    PAGE SETUP always came up with USBANNER set. Changing to US LEGAL seemed
    to fix it. This was often (maybe always) when an older saved AW doent
    was opened and converted in AW 6.x and attempt at printing was made.

    I also had ( still have) problems with AW in that page margins were
    messed up always defaulting to .25 or .56 inch or some mix of those for
    LRTopBOttom margins no matter what was set in AW for margins. Most
    annoying you never knew how it was going to print margins until you
    actually printed it.

    I did try making some custom paper sizes with limited success.

    I did try using GIMP printer drivers with some limited success. Some
    annoying bugs remain with OSX, HP printer, and AW 6.x. You might at
    least try GIMP drivers.

    Good luck. Printing should not be this complicated. It is most annoying
    that AW is problematic.

    This seems to work nearly all the time. Open the doent in AW and then
    open a new doent. Copy the data and paste it into the blank doent
    file. Print.
