Here is a simple question concerning printing Mma graphics from a Mac. On the screen I have complete control over the font and style of text included in Plot statements (axes labels and extra text that I specify through Prolog or Epilog commands). Moreover, if I resize the graphics on the screen, the text pleasantly resizes itself as well. Unfortunately when I print (from a IIci to a LaserWriter NT) I lose all control of the font and its style: all text prints in some Geneva-like default font (I can live with that...although not happily...) and its size is unaffected by screen resizing of the graphics (this I find very difficult to live with...). Even worse, "special" characters do not print correctly---"Pi" (Option p) looks great on the screen, but the character which is printed looks like a subscript double quote mark. I must be overlooking something (and revealing my ignorance by asking the question). Can somebody tell me how to handle this problem? William Barker WBarker at James.Bowdoin.edu
