Hi all, 

Indesign doesn't print correctly, the doc printed has all sort of funky fonts, I would say it's seems to be communication issue with the printer, now I must export to PDF then print the PDF

I'm running indesign CS6 on windows home 10

my printer is a xerox 4622

 

Thanks for the help

To start with, CS6 is not supported under Windows 10, and some funkiness is not exactly unexpected. That said, printing from PDF rather than direct from ID has always been more reliable, in my experience,  and as a pragmatist I seldom even bother trying.
