I finally have a version of PageStream (1.8) which is stable enough to
use, but among the many problems I am having, the fonts are weird. Tyme
and Helv work OK, but Saturn and Hudson, despite the presence of printer
files for these fonts, do not print correctly -- many of the letters
appear only in outline form (i e and x in Saturn, about half the letters
in Hudson). I don't use these fonts very much, but it is annoying.
Does anyone have printer drivers for some of the other fonts which PS
supports only for PostScript, such as Symbol and dingbats? These would
be nice -- the quality of the output on even a 9-pin Panasonic KX-P1180
It would be nice to pick up some tips about PS from this newsgroup,
since the old PPPro manual is obsolescent, and SoftLogik doesn't seem to
have plans to update it, just bits and pieces on loose sheets of paper
with each new release. Do the new versions come with a up-to-date manual?
