Office 10 and Calibri font problems

We have a range of PC's which we upgraded from the previous Office version to Office 10.

After the upgrade the Calibri font does not print (on Xerox Phaser printers or into PDF's) correctly. It misses out some characters, for example X and K.

Calibri isn't embedded in the printers, but then it worked fine before Office 10.

The font does display correctly on screen.

If Calibri had been screwed up generally across Office 10 I would expect lots of hits on the problem in Google, but there doesn't seem to be a general problem, just us, hence the 500 points.

You recently upgraded to Office XP? (Office 10 is XP or 2002, 2003 is 11)

Or 2010?

Is the calibri font installed on the print server, or is this direct attached?

Ah, sorry. We upgraded to Office 2010.

Um, good question about print server. The Phasers are all network attached, and I'm pretty sure we talk to them through the SBS server... so it may not have Calibri, though we didn't change anything from when we used Office 2007, which did work OK.

It is printing through the SBS server, which has SBS 2007 installed
Actually, it appears 2010 uses a new version of Calibri. This may be your issue.

So it appears you can either revert the system back to 5.0 that came with 2007 or install the newer version over the top on the server.

BUT, you mentioned PDFs too, so perhaps the need to is the old version after all.

Well done athomsfere.

I haven't fixed it properly, but I'm on the way as when I set up to print direct and not through the SBS, it worked.

Athomsfere that worked perfectly for me! Thanks!
