Misaligned Printing

My company has used File Maker for years on MAC computers, but they have decided to switch to PC's. When we transferred the database from the MAC's to the PC the layout on the screen was fine, but when we print a sheet the layout becomes misaligned. We have sheets of data that display operation numbers in one column and they must line up with the operation data in another column. Well on the screen the numbers line up with the data, but when we print the sheet the numbers no longer align with the data. It worked perfectly on the MAC version, but when used on a PC we have that problem. What could cause this problem? Please help.

Printer and print driver differences are causing this, although font difference may also play a part.

Unfortunately you are going to have to manually fix all the printed layouts within Filemaker. This is the only reliable way to resolve this situation.
