I don't have a very good printer at home, so I like to take things to uni to 
print, but since I'm using open office I need to put the documents in a nice 
portable format, so I use KDE's print to pdf feature. Trouble is open office 
is definately not WYSIWIG. The text always seems to come out in the PDF in 
bold. I've tried Arial, Arial Narrow and Times New Roman. The text looks very 
nice in Open Office, but then comes out different in the pdf - how do I fix 
I've tried viewing it in xpdf, kghost and Acrobat with the same results - 
except that xpdf doesn't render arial narrow at all!
