Re: Special Bullet Symbol does not appear correctly in Frame 6.0


You have stumbled into the known Windows 2000/XP system bug associated
with display of fonts also enumerated in a PostScript printer's PPD.
We have extensively discussed this problem and the easy workaround for
this that also solves a number of other anomalies. For a copy of the
workaround, please see the permanent article that I have posted on the
Adobe User-to-User Forums at:

I use the character dingbat character format to format a special bullet character (triangle/small t) in a para style. Frame does not diplay the triangle. Instead it displays a diamond character. When I create a pdf from this document, however, the correct character (the triangle) displays. I get this same behavior if I use different dingbat characters; eg, if I select a different dingbat character, it does not display correctly in frame, but it does display correctly when I create and view a pdf from the same document.
