# Math Equations Print Incorrectly to DMP and DeskJet

**ID: Q82966**

The information in this article applies to:

- Microsoft Equation Editor version 1.0

## SUMMARY

The Microsoft Equation Editor version 1.0 can print equations to
24-pin and 9-pin dot-matrix printers and Hewlett-Packard (HP) DeskJet
500 printers using the TrueType font technology included with the
Microsoft Windows operating system version 3.1; however, when you
print to one of these printers, the equations may be printed
incorrectly.

## MORE INFORMATION

The Equation Editor may choose incorrect fonts for formatting math
equations. The Equation Editor chooses fonts based on the printer
driver it detects. To change the fonts assigned to a style in the
Equation Editor, choose Define from the Style menu. In the Styles
dialog box, select the TrueType font Times New Roman for all styles
except Lower Case Greek, Upper Case Greek, and Symbol; select the
TrueType Symbol font for these three styles. These font choices result
in correctly printed output when you print to 9-pin and 24-pin
dot-matrix printers and DeskJet 500 printers in the Microsoft Windows
operating system version 3.1.
