Why? I'm not sure why this is happening. You may want to send this example to Technical Support <support at wolfram.com> so that they can forward it to our development group. > (ii) when using > > Display["c:\\tmp\\graph.wmf",p1,"Metafile", > ImageSize->{5*72,5*72*FullOptions[p1,AspectRatio]} > ] > > the curves look fine but the fonts change into a sans serif font (like > Helvetica). Why? What release of Mathematica 3.0 are you using? If you're not sure, evaluate the following expression in a notebook $ReleaseNumber If it evaluates to "0", then you may want to review the following FAQ. http://www.wolfram.com/support/Graphics/Formats/psrender/FontLimits.html -- P.J.
