View Full Version : Preps on PC Font Problem

01-30-2006, 01:41 PM
Has anyone had problems with fonts when using Preps on a PC?
Some fonts drop out at random when we use the mixed files option in Preps on a PC and print the fat postscript file to a hot folder on the Brisque.
We are using Preps v5 and Brisque v5. This problem is random on a page. As an example, if we have the price $9.99 in 5 different spots, it might print correctly in a couple spots but then it will drop out the 99 cents in other spots. It happens with words too. Any help on this is appreciated.

I was just wondering why you are using mixed files in Preps? Is there a specific reason you need to impose the Postscript file as opposed to RIPping it first and imposing the Brisque pages (which would in theory get around your font problem)?

Both of our Brisques are single processor which is slow when using the icf workflow. We know the icf is the way to go but will need to upgrade the brisques. Currently looking at Printergy Evo as an option.
