  1. The problem is now solved. Not memory or anything like that, but a corrupted font. Our supplier, Quad Logic Systems narrowed it down to a corrupted font (Lubalin Graph in the OS (System Folder/Fonts folder). As we generally only use this font with VW, the problem showed up with VW printing to a postscript printer. Oddly enlugh, this was not a problem when running under OS 9, so - either the font was corrupted subsequently (by X?), or OS X does not like old fonts! If anyone else has a problem with corrupted fonts, it is important to dump the font entirely, and disable it in the Font Book, before restarting. To make sure it is dumped, open a VW document that uses the font and see if the font substitution dialog appears. If all is OK, reinstall the font from CD or floppy.
  2. Katie The odd thing is that the mac with a printing problem has MORE mmory than the one without, and exactly the same programs open! If it is a memory problem is it: in the Mac (704Mb), or in the printer (36Mb)
  3. Katie I have clicked the rasterise button, and, lo and behold, the two computers that had problems with printing have worked. However, The other computers running both 10.2.8 and 10.3.6 do NOT have the raster button clicked, and they print fine. Howver, the print speed and procedure that they all go through is now identical. Very odd. On the question of operating systems, OS 10.3.6 was vine with VW on one machine, and not on two others (although one was OK for a while). Any further suggestions
  4. We're using VW 10.5.1, having upgraded to Mac OS X 10.3.6 Some of us have o problem printing to a networked HP 5100 laserjet - others have lost the ability - it was alright initially but nothing prints now. This lack of printing is unique to VW (other applications are OK). The only workarountd at present is to print via another machine which operates printer sharing. Any suggestions?
