My guess is that it's some specific combination of Acroread version,
printer and Ghostscript version. The easiest fix is probably to
upgrade Acroread to a newer version. Hopefully that helps.

Hi all!

I've recently noticed that when I print one of my PDF files, the chord names come out garbled -- all 'm's or 'n's or 'u's and the like. The on-screen display is fine, as is the PS file. And when I print the PS file, it's perfect.

I'm using 2.5.29 (waiting for 2.6.x or 2.7.x to come out in ports), Acroread 5.0.10, and GV 3.6.1. Below my signature is the text file, but when I tried to send the PDF and the PS files, it was too big for the list, so if you want to see that, please write, and I'll send it to you directly.

Any ideas, anyone?
