PRB: Tops of Letters May Be Cut Off with Some PostScript Fonts

Article ID: Q102921
Creation Date: 12-AUG-1993
Revision Date: 19-SEP-1996 The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Access version 1.0

SYMPTOMS


If you print Microsoft Access documents to a PostScript printer using certain PostScript fonts, the tops of taller letters may be cut off, even though the letters display correctly when you preview the document.

Microsoft has reproduced this problem with the CoventryScript font, supplied in the Fluent Laser Fonts package manufactured by Casady & Greene, Inc. This problem may also occur with other PostScript Type 1 fonts that have tall ascenders or tall capital letters.

CAUSE


This problem occurs because of the method Microsoft Access uses to define cutoff regions for control boxes.

RESOLUTION


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Access version 1.0. This problem was corrected in Microsoft Access version 1.1.
