After Windows updates KB5000802 and KB5001567, March 2021, if I try to print a Word document containing a table with dotted borders style, print fails and often Word hangs or crashes.
Rolling back these updates solve the problem. Anyone else has encountered the same malfunction?

There is an even newer Windows update that deals with printing issues. If you haven't already installed it, see March 18, 2021—KB5001649 (OS Builds 19041.870 and 19042.870) Out-of-band (microsoft.com).

I had the same issue, installed the update, and now the problem is fixed. Thanks a lot!

I'm glad I could help. Thanks for the feedback.

@Stefan_Blom Thank you.
