Fonts like Futura are not printing well

We are using a special Font in our Word Documents: Futura.

The fonts are installed in OS X and i can see them in Word.

If i print a document the fonts aren't right.

Should i install the fonts in my bottle? How could i install fonts in a bottle?

Thanks for your answers!

Regards,
Ulrich

Hello,

You can see the fonts in word because it is "faking" the presence of the font. As you can see from trying to print, the font is not actually present in your copy of word inside Crossover.

You should indeed install the font into your bottle. To do so, save the .ttf file inside

Hi Jack,

my fonts are otf files. Should i convert them into ttf?

Either format should be useable by Windows.
