Whenever I try to print a document that has the "ff" glyph in InDesign CS6, all I get is a blank space. If I go in and manually change it to two separate, but consecutive, f's - it will print fine.
The ff's print fine if I first convert to a PDF.
I'm not sure yet how it works in all other applications - I haven't noticed it anywhere else yet, but I haven't done a ton of testing.
I am using Mountain Lion OS 10.8.2
My printer is a Phaser 6360.
I have the latest drivers from their website
Does anyone know how to fix this? I've been seeking help from Xerox as well, but as this problem is isolated to InDesign documents, I figured I'd ask here too incase someone else has run into it as well.
You didn't indicate which font or fonts this problem occurs with.
The fact that the output prints OK when exported to PDF and then printed from Acrobat would be indicative of a problem with your output dialog font settings. Check your settings for font inclusion on output. On the Graphics tab, make sure you set the Fonts Download option for Complete and check the Download PPD Fonts option.
In the graphics section of the print dialog make sure under fonts you dest the download to Complete rather than Subset and check the box to Download PPD fonts.
