Please note that with this version, no fonts are provided. CW uses (all) the fonts in Fonts:_Truetype directory. CW uses Bitstream Vera Sans as default font. If you don’t have this font installed, you can download it from the fonts download area of
CW uses truetype fonts, which can be downloaded from the internet (or taken from an old version of CW). If you have installed OWB and the fonts used by OWB, CW should be able to use these fonts

Printer and PDF export is EXPERIMENTAL. You will probably experience artefacts in your PDF documents. Furthermore, I cannot guarantee that Printer support work since I don’t have a printer myself. Printer and PDF support is based on Ghostscript. If you have used command line Ghostscript to print a file, please mail me the command and a description on the printer used. I will recompile a CW version that is optimized for your printer and return the new version to you.
