Re: Font metrics message


If I was a betting person, I'd bet that a different printer is selected
as the current or default printer starting at the time you received the
alert, if you are running under Windows and that the identified font
is installed on your computer, but is also indicated as a resident font
in the PPD for the printer. If that is the case, you want to follow my
advice in terms of eliminating font references in the PPD. See
and read the entire posting including the "furthermore" section!

If you are on the Mac, it is possible that you have multiple versions of
the same named font on your system. For example, Apple's TrueType Helvetica
versus the Adobe Type 1 Helvetica. Delete the TrueType duplicates of the
Type 1 fonts in that case.
