Landscape TrueType Fonts Print Incorrectly on HP LaserJet II

PSS ID Number: Q101836 Article last modified on 01-24-1995

====================================================================== 6.00 MS-DOS kbother

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

SYMPTOMS

TrueType fonts in a Word for MS-DOS document that is formatted for landscape orientation print incorrectly on a Hewlett-Packard (HP) LaserJet Series II if you print the TrueType fonts as downloadable fonts instead of as graphics. In other words, if you cancel the Print TrueType As Graphics option in the File Printer Setup dialog box, the HP LaserJet Series II printer does not print landscape TrueType fonts correctly.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the HP LaserJet Series II printer does not autorotate fonts. This printer requires that you download separate, landscape fonts to print text in landscape orientation.

WORKAROUND

To print TrueType fonts in landscape orientation on a LaserJet Series II, you must select the Print TrueType As Graphics option in the File Printer Setup dialog box.

MORE INFORMATION

TrueType font technology relies on Microsoft Windows operating system version 3.1 to autorotate fonts to print in landscape orientation, so there are no landscape versions of TrueType fonts.
