Is there a way that I can print a file on a computer that doesn't have software to read the file?

I have a very specialized font installed for MS word on my computer, but no printer. I have access to a computer lab with excellent printing resources, but these computers will not have the particular font. I would really like to use the computer lab superior printing capabilities.

I tried creating a *.pdf file, but the computer said it didn't recognize the font.

I tried pasting into paint, but I lost a butt load of resolution.

You should be able to embed the font within the word doc. Its an option, but I don't recall were or how to do it. Ask the stupid dog/paper clip for some help on embedded fonts. I'm sure its covered in M$ Office help.

Lol, yea that dog-paper clip is annoying...

Or... go to c:\windows\fonts directory and copy the font you need to a floppy and then paste the font from the floppy to the ..\fonts directory on the computer at your School. Sometimes it is picky with the copy and paste command but dragging and dropping the font will work.

HTH,

Just FYI to anyone, the embedding did not work.
