Font displaying but not printing

Recommended Posts

Finally found a font that looks a lot like my own hand draughting font. It is Draft Punk Ltd, purchased from MyFonts.com. It displays perfectly fine but does not print at all; it is just missing. Not on any of the three printers that i tried does it work. Nor through Adobe PDF or a freeware pdf generator, nor does printing through rastrising output (SLOW) work; all these seem to get stuck in some never-ending loop.

Other software, like CS6 Design series (illustrator and Photoshop) or Libreoffice all display and print the font fine in any shape of form.

It appears to be solely VW that has an issue here, or is there something wrong with this font?

Anybody else had any problems related to specific fonts?

Jim, OpenType fonts can be TTF or OTF, the former being TrueType coded and the later PostScript coded.

Based on the link you provided above it seems OTF OpenType fonts are still(?) not properly supported like TTF OpenType fonts?

If so, are there plans to improve the OTF OpenType fonts support in the foreseeable future?
