RE: Font not printing right on SOME printers

Hi Al,

Based on my understanding, you have an application which prints something
to printers. The problem is that the font of "OCR A Extended" cannot be
printed properly on some of printers. If I'm off base, please feel free to
let me know.

I performed a test printing the font of "OCR A Extended" to a printer in my
office but didn't reproduce the problem on my side. The font was printed
properly in my test. The model of the printer I used is "HP LaserJet 8150
Series PCL6".

You can find all fonts installed on the machine under the folder

You may have a try printing the "OCR A Extended" font directly to see if it
can be printed properly on the problematic printers. To do this, in the
above folder, right-click the font of "OCR A Extended" and choose "Print"

What are the model of the problematic printer? If they're PostScript
printers, you may need to avoid font substitution. Please visit the
following link for information on how to do it:
"Avoiding Font Substitution - Configuring Windows XP PostScript Printer "

Hope this helps.
