Big problem printing. This is with MIDI Notate 4.0.5. Only lyrics print. No notes are printed -- I see letters like G, Z, H, etc. where the notes should be. It looks fine on screen, but not on paper. Sharps and flats in key signature don't print right either (they look like circles). This sounds similar but not identical to the problem of "black" printing that is mentioned in the FAQs. There they say the problem is caused by over 300 fonts. I checked and had 297, then reduced it to 237, but the problem still exists. Am I supposed to see a "Harmony" font in the WIndows/Fonts directory? I don't. Yet I didn't get an error messages when installing. What should I do? I'm running on Windows XP on a Dell Pentium 4 1.8Ghz with 256meg RAM.

Never Mind -- it works now.
I removed a bunch of unneeded fonts as mentioned in my first message. Then I reinstalled MIDI Notate 4.0.5 (I still had the original setup file from my purchase), then restarted Windows XP.
I just noticed that the file Harmony_.ttf is located in my MidiNotate directory, not the Windows/Fonts directory (it confused me that I couldn't find the font in Windows/Fonts).

It's nice when MidiNotate users answer each other's questions, and even nicer when they answer their own questions!
The FAQ about the music font problem should have included the advice to restart Windows after reducing the count of fonts to below 300, and before running MidiNotate again. I have updated the FAQ to include this extra tip about restarting Windows that I learned from your report.
