Summary

Print Preview looks great but the print copy is full of odd characters.

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

FMPro 11

Operating system version

I am using Filemaker Pro v. 11.- My computer is running Windows EX Pro with Service Pak 2.

Description of the issue

When I view information on my computer everything is fine. However when I print to a shared printer the information in some of the fields prints with odd characters and garbaled information. Eventhough the print preview looks perfect.
The same thing happens if I print to my desktop printer.

  If I move over to another computer and print to the same printer which is a networked printer everything is fine. Both computers are running the same operating system as above.I have tried unplugging my desktop printer and just printing to the shared printer.
I tried uninstalling FMPro.on my computer.
The problem continues.
If I export the information to excel and print it everything is fine.

Workaround

I send the information to excel and print. Not ideal.
