Word documents using Gill Sans font won't print

  fishyman 09:17 29 May 2006

I have created 5 Microsoft Word files using Gill Sans font which is a truetype font not included as standard with Windows or Office. Gill Sans is a font included with Lotus Worpro which I also use. One of the larger files prints ok, but the other 4 won't print at all and no error messages come up. The same problem occurs on another PC I have tried to print from so I am assuming the font or the files themselves must be the problem. The troublehooter suggests shortage of disk space or memory might be causing it but I have plenty of both. Any ideas please?

I have Gill Sans MT on my Office 2002 set up but I`m guessing that`s not the same as you require. Have you installed the font on to your computer and if so what Operating System/Office version have you got?

You could try deleting a few fonts to see if that cures the problem.

Gill Sans is an installed font and I am Using XP SP2 with Microsoft Office 2003.

Do you have any other programmes that use fonts, any photoedits or Nero cover designer etc. Maybe you could see how this font reacts in them. I have 947 fonts installed including 9 variants of Gill Sans and so far have not seen the problem you describe. Does it work if you print from Wordpro.

Why not use another similar font? Open Control Panel and select Fonts. Then select View from the menu and select View by Similarity. In the top drop down box select Gill Sans and you`ll see a list of "fairly Similar" one`s. Arial is one of those and a personal favourite of mine because of it`s clarity for general reading.

Do you have the latest drivers for your printer?
