When I print to PDF, and when I print to my printer directly, the bullet points don't show up. The text that correspond to the bullets show up -- but the bullets themselves don't. For the bullets, I'm using a custom font (Wingdings) and the square character. That way I can make a todo list with check boxes =) But they are not appearing!

The printer driver does not recognise the custom font. Try using the drawing objects instead. – user3463 Jun 25 '11 at 5:56
Uh just use the box bullet type then customise the bullet formatting to have a large box? – Jun 25 '11 at 7:42
@Randolph: how can I get my printer driver to recognize the custom font? I'm using a Canon Pixma printer, the MP280. – Zachary Burt Jun 27 '11 at 18:25
@Todda, not really sure what you're saying. In order to get the large box, I used the Wingdings font. Is there another font I should choose instead [that is likely more compatible with my printer]? – Zachary Burt Jun 27 '11 at 18:26

Save the document to an image. Then print it out.

@ZacharyBurt just to clarify - does the document look perfectly fine in PDF? – user78429 Jun 28 '11 at 7:48
