Printing Times New Roman
I have a very strange problem effecting one of my machines when trying to print times new roman.
On the screen it looks fine but when you print it it seems to change font and mess up the character spacing
I've tried removing the printer drivers from the machine and re-installing them from the print server but that didn't solve the problem. I removed the font and copied it onto the machine from another one that works.
I can't think of anything else that could effect how a font appears on the paper, times new roman comes out fine from any other machine...
Have you checked if there is an updated driver available for the printer. I had some issues a bit back where it was missing half lines and odd bits of text, but installed the latest driver and it's been fine since.
Try setting the option to download fonts as bitmaps rather then use the printer fonts.
I was going to suggest that, if installing the printer on the local machine direct to the ip or using USB then make sure you set this on the printing preferences and also the printing defaults ( under the advanced tab ?? ).

I will try these next time I'm in the school. Its just strange that its works fine for nearly a year and now its suddenly developed this fault whilst the identical thin client host next to it is un affected.
Does the thin client access or get its fonts from the server in comparison to a normal client ( fat client ) which has a copy of all the different fonts on said machine ?

1. updating the printer driver
2. adjusting the print driver settings
Does not make any difference
After trying everything here it still had the same fault. In the end telling the printer to substitute times new roman for times new roman fixed it...
