Over here, there are no problems to convert your PS file to PDF.

Thanks for looking at this, Mats.

I am completely baffled by this problem. I've checked all the instances of the Verdana font I can find on my laptop, and they all check out okay. Maybe there's another instance of the font somewhere I can't find. I thought maybe the wrong version of GS was being triggered, but running with --verbose shows that GPL Ghostscript SVN PRE-RELEASE 8.56 (2006-05-20) is the version called. And when I tried using ps2pdf directly to process the .ps file, it choked - "invalid font in --glyphshow--".

I think I'll give up at this point. :-(

So let's try something else. Is there a way to specify a sans serif font other than Verdana for ChordNames? If not, I guess I'll stick to Roman for the chord names.
