    I am having a strange problem with printing certain documents.
    I went to print a ".rtf" file it printed as gibberish, looked fine on the screen.
    I then tried to just copy the data to a new file directly.
    Still would not print properly.
    Copied as text only through a new document fixed the formatting...prints OK.
    Next day I try to print an extra copy from my created document and it is gibberish again.

    I had saved a copy to a USB thumb drive and it no longer prints properly either.
    MD5 sums saved when the files were printing OK still match on both files.

    I can repeat the process and get a good print...but sometimes the later printing will be gibberish.

    This one has me scratching my head ?

    Anybody seen something like this before
