Porting Layouts from Mac to PC

Recommended Posts

I created a series of files on a Mac; I then transferred the files to a PC. I expected to have color differences, but I did not expect that the printed output from several layouts would have all kinds of spacing problems.

When I looked at the layouts on screen, they appeared to look OK; but when I printed them the elements of the layouts hsd shifted severely. In order to get them to print correctly I had to move the elements around. This involved a lot of cut and try time and paper, but eventually I got them so they print OK. HOWEVER, now they look all cockeyed on screen.

What causes this, and is there a way to fix it?

TIA

Could be font substitution... if the fonts you used on the mac are not available on the pc you tested, then another font will be used, causing spacing issues.

Well, that occured to me, but all of the fonts at least have the same name - most of them are letters using only Palatino.

I think that the resolution I used on my Mac, when designing these, is different that the resolution on the PC I installed the files on. Is it possible that this could have an effect?
