It sounds as if Adobe PDF isn't set as the default printer (it should
be) and you may be invoking a printer font that isn't actually
installed on your system but is resident on the printer.

Not directly related to this, but you may want to check the
DisplayUsingPrinterMetrics= line in maker.ini too. It is usually set
to Off; but On would be better to accurately reflect the font display
on screen.
