The glyphs used to draw fraction bars originate from the Math fonts that are installed by Mathematica. It sounds as if there is a font substitution or encoding problem. You'll need to provide the following information: 1) What is the _full_ version of Mathematica that you are using? You can find this on the "Version Number field" in the Mathematica About box. The method of opening this window varies from platform to platform, but regardless of what system you're running on, this command FrontEndTokenExecute["AboutBoxDialog"] will do the job. 2) What platform are you running on? Printing is highly sensitive to operating system? 3) What type of printer did you use? If your platform requires a driver for this printer, what version of the driver are you using? -- P.J.
