Font Issues -

Posted on 2013-11-27
Last Modified: 2013-11-28
Hi there,

I am creating a report that has over 10 sub reports - all was functioning fine until I went to preview and then fonts in some of the text boxes or fields in some of the sub reports are illegible.

I know that there is an issue sometimes using Arial but this is times new roman.  Does anyone know why this could happen?  As well, do I have to go into reach report to adjust the font OR is there a way to set it all over again.

Thank you -

Did the printer change?

No, it's the same. Literally one minute it was working and then the next this issue happened. I'm baffled on this end!

Interesting - The only change is that I moved to a Windows 8 machine.  But when I transferred this report to my other computer which is Vista, it's fine.  Do you have any idea what the issue could be? Is it printer or perhaps the OS? I'll see if I can find anything on this end,

Thank you -

Windows 8 would have a different printer driver even for the same printer.  Try opening the report and setting the printer.
