When using Myriad Pro fonts in reverse (any variant), the font won't print. Any ideas? Other fonts print without problems.

(1) What do YOU mean by in reverse? White on black? Reflected (as you would see in a mirror)?

(2) What program(s) are you using and how are you doing said "reversing"?

(3) What type of printer are you printing to?

White type using InDesign CS3. I'm printing to an HP color laserjet 4600.

I cannot reproduce this problem with any of my printers using Adobe Myriad Pro (any variant) in a white on black context (note that you must not have "overprint on" for white on top of any other color. Please send a sample document to me off-forum (click my name for e-mail address) and I'll confirm this with your sample.

Note that the HP LaserJets are notoriously problematic with their "emulation" of PostScript. They don't use Adobe PostScript.

The problem was resolved by installing a PostScript driver for the printer rather than the PCL driver. Thanks to Dov for help in resolving the issue.
