Text is bigger when printed

I have a problem in printing or I just don’t know how to set it. When I create a text in rhino and set its size up to making a layout, the font size doesn’t change but when I go and print my file the size go bigger and longer and overlaps other text and lines. I hope to resolve this. Thank you in advance for the advice. Please see the attached file for the problem.

NOTE: For now my solution for this is changing the font style but is there another way that you don’t need to change the font style?

Hi Jay - could you please post a 3dm file that shows this behavior?

HI Wim,

Thank you for the reply. Please see the attached file. I also attach a pdf file. I think the correct word for my problem is the text stretches sideways. And in Rhino 4 i don’t have this kind of problem. Only in Rhino 6.

Thank you,

Hi Jayson - thank you for those files. We have this issue logged as RH-54669. I have updated the report with information about the font that you use.

For the time being, the workaround is to either use a different font (e.g. Arial) or print to raster instead of vector.

Hi Wim,

Thank you for your time and advice. I will wait for the update.

Hi @wim,

Any update on this issue? I did some testing and the issue might be more extreme with Monospaced fonts.
