Hi martin, Thanks for answering.
Sure. You should select a printer driver that supports TrueType fonts. It seems you chose "Generic/Text only". Go to File/Print and choose the driver that really represents your printer.
The reported behavior is correct: Your document is still formatted in Verdana, even though your printer driver doesn't know it. That's why it shows "Verdana" in the closed portion of the dropdown, but when you open it, it offers only the fonts your printer driver reports.
You appear to be saying that this behavior is by design which leaves me completely baffled. I have no intention or need to print the particular XLS file in question. I simply want to view & edit it in PM but both my experience and your reply suggest that this is not possible until I have a physical printer installed!
I did reinstall my printer (which only took 4 hrs - thank you HP!) and now PM shows this file normally again. But I haven't added any fonts at all. The Windows fonts that PM now shows were there all the time. Why do I have to install a printer so PM can see the Windows fonts?
And supposing I didn't have a printer at all - are you saying the SM Office only works
for people who have printers??? If so why?
