    Fields not printing to printer, but print to PDF - font issue

      Summary

      Fields not printing to printer, but print to PDF - font issue

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11 03

      Operating system version

      Win7

      Description of the issue

      New machine, Win7 OS, fresh install of FM11, update 03. Field fonts appear as italic on screen.  Printing to printer prints the layout but not fields.  Printing to PDF prints the fields.  Fields are set to Arial font, not sure if this is significant.  Changing font to another font, say Courier New, results in field being printed in that font.  Resetting field font to Arial makes field not-print to the printer again.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Seems to be machine-specific.  We are running FM11v03 on many workstations, this is second Win7-FM11 box we have.  First one doesn't have this problem, printing same layout in same database from either local drive or opened from FM Server.

      Steps are:

      Open db

      Print to printer

      No field data displays

      Expected result

      Field data should print in printouts

      Actual result

      Field data doesn't display on printout

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      no error message appears

      Configuration information

      Win7, FM11v03, Dell Latitude laptop, any of a number of HP printers

      Workaround

      If print to PDF, field data prints out
