This user is having trouble changing the font on a DDS-described AFP printer file (with overlay). He says the FONTNAME keyword appears to do nothing, and the FONT keyword changes the size of the text but not the font itself. Do you know how to handle this? -- Michelle Davidson, editor, Search400.com
