Question about HP LaserJet P2015 Printer
I have spent days trying to fix this problem. When we go to print something to this printer it will put some spaces in some of the words. like lets say I type I am a god in a word doc and click print. I will print out I am a g od. I have no idea how to fix this. It is not any of the computer's. we print to a laser 2200 and it does not do this. Any one have any ideas?
Come to find out I hope date the drivers to the newest one out. That fixed the problem. So hp most have talk to a lot of people having the same problem. thank you all of you guys for your help.

In the print driver, disable font subsititution.
This is a common problem with HP printers. Basically, for certain fonts like Arial and Times New Roman, the driver will say "use the built in printer font (Helvetica or Times)" instead of downloading the TrueType font to save time and get the print job out faster. The problem is that the printer engine misrenders the text if there's a double-space in the line, such as following a period at the end of the sentence. This doesn't seem to be a problem for fonts that are downloaded to the printer with the document.
Here's the test: remove all the double-spaces (not line spaces, but character spaces) from your messed-up document and print it out. It will probably look OK.
Chances are you were taught in typing class to double-space after a period at the end of a sentence. This is correct for monospace fonts such as on a typewriter, but for variable space fonts, the computer will add the correct amount of space after the period, so you don't need to hit the spacebar twice. I usually just disable all the font substitution because that's easier than retraining your typists.
