When printing in Windows Google Chrome, I'm having problems with the character spacing between certain letters/combinations. The space between certain characters on the print output is noticeably smaller making two characters join together.

The letters that seem to cause the problems are A, W, V. Its even worse if they are in bold.

I've tried different fonts but they seem to have their own issues with lower case 'l'

I can print the same content in Mac Chrome, Firefox (windows & mac) and IE9 with no problems. This seems to be specific to printing on Windows Chrome (latest version). I'm using Arial 11.

Any ideas?

Do you have the same problem if your print to PDF from Chrome? –  nathangiesbrecht Feb 26 at 16:18
