    Font rendering problem in FW CS3

    Level 7
      I have a font called P22 Zaner on my computer that for some reason
      won't render properly in Fireworks (CS3 or 8).
      When I use it in Fireworks it looks like there's a mask cutting off
      parts of the letters, specially the right side of the last letter on
      the word.
      When I use the same font in Illustrator it renders properly.
      I am curious if anybody has seen the same and if there is a "cure" so
      I can use it in Fireworks as I need to.

      Thanks in advance,

          Each character in font is contained within a bounding box, which is used
          to determine how much space is allowed between characters. In some fonts
          the actual outlines defining the characters extend beyond the boundaries
          of their box. The tail of an uppercase "Q" is a common feature that
          might extend outside the bounding box. Fireworks displays only the parts
          of the character that are within the box, and not any parts that might
          extend outside the box.

          You can try hitting Return to add some extra space. If that doesn't
          work, convert the text to paths. The text will no longer be editable,
          but the ascenders and descenders outside the bounding box will appear.
