FYI, PS Font Printing Issues in OSX 10.2.4

Question

I have been having very similar problems to the ones mentioned before with not being able to print, VW 10.1 OSX 10.2.4, but to a Fiery PS printer.

It seems the problem was in the font I was using, a version of News Gothic. Any file with this font displayed would not print. When I changed the font to a system font, like Geneva, the files print just fine.

Just thought I'd pass that along, and if anyone knows why this is happening, please let me know!

The font may be corrupt.

Try to decompress the font again and save it to the fonts folder, then restart the computer.

Make sure you are saving it to your users home fonts folder, not the system fonts folder.

The reason may be that the font is a Type 1 PostScript font. There is a bug that Apple knows about when printing to a PS printer under OS X using a Type 1 PS font.

Thanks,

It is a Type 1 font. Works fine if I print to file (pdf) and then plot the pdf.

The funny thing is I use other Type 1 fonts that work fine with VW. Ah well, no worries...
