I am using Windows 2000 /XP. When I print from Adobe® Reader® 7.0, strange characters are printed on the page. What can I do?

Try changing the printer driver settings as follows:





  1. Open the 'Advanced' tab of the printer driver.

  2.  Click 'Device Option(5)' and then click 'True Type Mode'..

  3. From 'True Type Mode' option, select 'Print as Graphics'.

  4. Disable the 'Use Printer True Type Fonts' option.
    Please note that the print speed may reduce.
