Myriad Pro - Regular (.otf) don't print from MS Word

  1. Default Myriad Pro - Regular (.otf) don't print from MS Word

    Hi everybody,

    I'm driving crazy with this issue. I can get Myriad Pro - Regular to print from MS Word or any other MS Office program. But I can print other .otf fonts from those applications. What might be happening. I already tried in different computers and printers (laser and ink jet), but nothing make that font to be printed through MS Word. The font is perfectly printed from any Adobe application, but I really need it to be printed from MS Word.

    I would really appreciate if someone could give me a help on this.

    Thanks in advance.

    How are you installing the font (and for this, please mention the platform)?

    Sorry about the lack of information.
    Windows XP SP2, already tried in different MS Word version and different computers. I simply copy and paste the font file to the /windows/fonts folder.

    It's a very strange issue indeed.

    Thanks for your time.

    Alexandre,

    Please give versions of the specific applications in question, and let us know if this is an issue with just Myriad, or with other fonts as well. Could it be that this font is installed in a different location than your other fonts? Do you have a duplicate installation of the same font?

    Thanks.

    Word 2003 part of the Microsoft Office Professional edition 2003.

    That particular font and the others I've tested (.ttf and .otf) are in the same location: Windows/Fonts folder. But only Myriad Pro dont print under MS Office applications. The others print fine (.otf and .ttf).

    I looked and I dont have a duplicate of that font. Only variants, like Myriad Pro Bold, Myriad Pro Bold Condensed, ...

    Thanks.

    Alex.

    You shouldn't cut and paste fonts into the font folder. Use the menu item install instead.

  8. Default Re: Myriad Pro - Regular (.otf) don't print from MS Word

    To elaborate on what Don said:

    Windows doesn't actually look in the Fonts folder to find its fonts.
    (In fact, when you look at the fonts folder with Windows explorer
    you're NOT seeing what's physically in the folder! You're seeing an
    interpretation of a registry entry!)

    Windows looks in the registry to find where the fonts are actually
    located. If CS3 or one of its components (Illustrator is a likely
    culprit) installed Myriad somewhere else, the system would look
    something like this:

    ILLUSTRATOR WINDOWS
    FOLDER FONTS FOLDER REGISTRY

    Myriad.otf - Myriad=Illustrator Folder

    Then, if you CUT and PASTE, you're left with

    - Myriad.otf Myriad=Illustrator Folder

    So Windows can no longer find the font file. Adobe products are
    non-standard (usually for the better!) and use their own techniques
    for finding fonts.

    I just printed a page of Myriad pro using word 2007, and it worked fine. Must be your font manager.

  10. Default Re: Myriad Pro - Regular (.otf) don't print from MS Word

    Yes I think it it is. I will upgrade my office suite to the latest service pack SP3 and see what happens.

    Thanks for all your time and knowledge on this issue.

    Alex.
