If two users are printing the same mathcad sheet and getting different fonts only for the greek symbols, what can be done to correct this difference?

RE: Greek symbols -user settings

Are you using a Greek font or using Ctrl-G to get the Greek symbol?

RE: Greek symbols -user settings

[Ctrl]+[g] or the symbol menu.

RE: Greek symbols -user settings

Well that seems to be the problem. One of the computers is missing the unimath font. How can that be fixed? Can it be by by copying a file from one PC to the other?

RE: Greek symbols -user settings

There are a number of threads on the collab that cover the installation of the unimath font.
[Occassionally it appears to be 'lost' by windows, or some other process that isn't fully understood, so quite a few posts!]
The font can also be embedded in pdf files, given the right settings and writer.

RE: Greek symbols -user settings

Well it took me some time to guess what "collab" was but now I know. http://collab.mathsoft.com/~Mathcad2000
The solutions are though too difficult to mee to perfectly understand so hopefully my Helpdesk can do the trick.
Thanks for the ref.

RE: Greek symbols -user settings

Background: The 'collaboratory' is the "User Forums" located under the Help menu in MathCAD. This connects to the web site originally set up by mathsoft, and now maintained by PTC.
The user forum's web address can be seen in MathCAD by switching on the Address toolbar, or clicking on the 'world' icon.
