    Angry revit printing issue with text

    when I view text in revit, it looks correct. When I print to PDF, the text gets "squished" see attachment

    Default Re: revit printing issue with text

    What font is that? Is it a "normal" Windows font (True Type - .TTF), or an Open Type Font .OTF?
    Revit and/or your PDF writer sometimes don't handle the OTFs well.
    Is the font available to your PDF writer?
    Next question: Does the Text Style in Revit use a width factor? Anything other than 1.0 has been known to cause issues.
    And finally, what PDF writer are you using? Can you try a different one?
    Go back to AutoCAD? I'd rather lose my right arm!

    Other additional thought in addition to DavePs post.
    Are you printing vector or Raster - That's been know to give different results as well.
