downloading fonts to a printer
hello,


I have a new laser printer that does not print pdf files that use embedded
arial and embedded arial bold fonts (I am using lpr printing). The printer
works fine if the pdf file uses true type arial and arial bold fonts.
That's because my printer is missing arial and arial bold fonts. Most of
small laser printers only come with 13 fonts, compare to big MFPs which come
with 35 fonts.

Is there any way to download fonts to the printer, please?


There is also a problem with pdf files that are created with pdf version 1.2
or 1.3. There is no problem with pdf version 1.4 or later.

Is there any standard for creating pdf files?

Thanks in advance!

Re: downloading fonts to a printer
This would need to be supported by the print driver. Look through the
advanced printer settings.
