Text printing incorrectly - big and overlapping

Question

I'm using VW 10.5 on Mac OS 10.3.9, printing to an HP5100 laserprinter. I have a large file that has been behaving fine for about a year. Suddenly today the fonts are printing wrong. Each letter is printing slightly bigger than it should - but without the spacing increasing, so the edges of the letters overlap and the text is borderline illegible. I have checked in the file and everything seems to be right. Saving to a PDF first, then printing the PDF also looks fine.

Nothing new has happened to the machine since I last printed successfully - no installs, no printer drivers, etc.

Thoughts?

I had something similar happen yesterday. The text in question was in a viewport. I recreated the viewport and it fixed it, in fact the text looked fine at the source, but not the viewport. Who knows if this works for you.

Hmmm.... I went back to my file today, and the problem is gone. I don't think I did anything that would have fixed this, so I'm not sure what the problem was. Incidentally, other files were printing fine.
