Brother HL-5170DN Truetype quirk


Brother HL-5170DN. Been using the printer. It is great with both duplex and network port.
Main thing not covered in the FAQ is that it doesn't do TrueType correctly, so printouts over the network fail. For some reason the default is to load TrueType fonts as graphics. This is fine at 300 dpi, but at 600dpi, it overloads the memory. You have to go to Printer Preferences/Advanced/TrueType and set it for print as Truetype and use the internal printer fonts.
Then you don't have this problem with bad pages, ejects and so forth. Its faster too.
