Yes, I realized this only yesterday when I looked it up. Usually I use 
only TrueType OR Ps1 in my documents. And yes, they are both installed 
and their names are slightly different.

By the way, which one would you prefer?

In order to file a bug, I should identify a bug at all. Up to now, I 
don't know if it's merely bad operating by me, an error in the software 
RIP or workflow of the printing firm or really a bug.

I checked the PDFs on a Windows system with Adobe Reader and without the 
Syntax fonts, they display absolutely ok there. Are there any other ways 
of checking a PDF?
