This worked, thank you, Nick - I never would have guessed that it would!  And thank you everyone else that replied.  I should add that I was using v. 12 and had never had this problem in earlier versions.

Just to follow up on the other replies:  this was a user-written help document, so I couldn't print from the pdf documentation.  I did try printing in landscape and had the same problem.  And yes, I could have copied and pasted the text into another program, but even though this seems like a minor problem, it is rather time consuming to have to deal with it, and I hope in the next set of updates Stata could fix it.  :)

On the odd occasion I've done this I found that narrowing the Viewer
first did help.
