I have problems when printing to HP printers for numbered, lettered, or bulleted paragraph types with a \t code.  I often get gaps in the text in the wrong places - best illustrated by example

a.  NanoPure (this one is ok - so it doesn't always happen)

b.MasterF   lex multichannel

d.Mi  dwest dental handpieces

...

g.Biosaf  ety Level I

The tab should be after the period in the letter or number.  This all have the same code - L:<a+>.\t and show up fine on the screen and show up fine in pdfs.  So it appears that there's an issue in the FM12 - HP printer protocols.  The print driver is new but it's happened over several HP printers and FM versions.

Help!!

Are you printing in PCL or PS mode? FM's lineage is postscript, so try using the PS mode. The alternate route is to create a PDFand print from that.

Thanks. I'll try that. FYI, I'm a FM user since V 3 and this started popping up in about V 9. Before that, I never noticed it.  I'd already figured out the pdf route but it seems odd to have to do that. I'm not a big fan of workarounds in mature software.
