      Printing as gibberish

      Description of the issue

      I am running FileMaker Pro 10 v3 on Windows XP and when I try to print the permanent information comes out as gibberish. For instance, the label for the "description:" field comes out "Cdrbqoshnm9," and instead of "Narrator:" I get "M' qq' snq9". The actual description field, with the unique information, comes out as typed. This happens regardless of the printer, but the computers running FileMaker Pro 7 do not have the same probelm. Does anyone know how this can be resolved? Thank you.

          I would check the Fonts. It may be that you are using an old font that the printers does not reconize. (example: chicago). You may also check the printer settings, I have found that if you change the setting 'use device fonts' to not use them it will also fix this issue.
