|For years I've been producing high-quality documents containing text and musical examples using openOffice Writer, with Finale graphics exported as .eps files, printed to PDF with PDF995.|
This no longer works. Worst case, when my lyrics use the FinaleLyric font, the lyrics in the final PDF are gibberish. Now, interestingly enough, the lyrics are fine on the openOffice screen, as well as on the output of the native OO PDF export routine (which is unfortunately of low quality). But they fail to print true under PDF995, which has worked flawlessly in this regard for years; and, further, when the .eps file is opened in GSview, it is also similarly corrupt.
Now, I have solved that part of the problem by substituting Times New Roman for my lyrics. But just when I thought I was out of the woods, I had a case where the initial letter of the staff name ("V" from Voice) had migrated to the middle of the first measure. Again, fine on the OO screen and fine on the OO PDF export; defective in PDF995 and in GSview, and the PDF output is crucial to me.
(Same situation whether it's my WinXP desktop or my Win7 laptop.)
This used to work! Anyone have any ideas?
