Fonts substituted during printing

Question

I believe this issue was addressed for previous versions of OS X - but I am running VW 10.1, Mac OS X.2.6 and all of a sudden yesterday, the system default font was substituting for the font on our drawings.

the quick fix was for us to print to a PDF and from there print to our plotter (HP 455CA - gimpprint). This works fine- but it would be nice to print directly to the plotter.

VW is the only application that does this - all other programs print properly.

any suggestions?

Is it substituting fonts in text blocks on the drawing or in worksheets that are being printed out?

What font are you using?

The printer is substituting the text in text blocks- it doesn't matter which font is being used- it all comes out Geneva. In this case, the font on the drawing is Palatino.

Check the VW prefs, Font Mappings to see if your Palatino font has accidentally been mapped to geneva.

You say it works fine when creating a PDF file but not when printing to your 455?

What driver are you using to print to the 455? (X RIP, gimp print, etc.)

well- i solved the problem...

the printer is shared through another computer. all I did was place the missing font in the fonts folder in the library on that computer. now everything prints fine. strange thing is that other documents with the same font printed fine through that computer before I added the font to the library.
