Diamond Bullet Character Prints Incorrectly on HP Series II

PSS ID Number: Q100503 Article last modified on 11-02-1994



The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for MS-DOS, version 6.0


When you print a Word for MS-DOS document on a Hewlett-Packard (HP) LaserJet Series II printer, the diamond bullet character may not print correctly. Instead of a bullet, a cross-hatched pattern prints that looks like the greater than (>) and less than (<) characters superimposed on one another. This happens if the diamond bullet character is formatted for the internal Courier or Linedraw font because these fonts do not contain the symbol set that includes the diamond bullet character.

The diamond bullet character prints correctly when you format it for a non-printer-resident font. This character prints correctly on an HP LaserJet Series III printer, even when you format the character for a printer-resident font.


Using the MergePRD utility or the Word Setup program, add TrueType font support to your HP LaserJet Series II printer driver. All TrueType fonts print the diamond bullet character correctly.
