There is a cure for this problem, but only for those using MacDraw Pro (I'm
using version 1.5v1)

Under the "Layout" menu, chose "Preferences..."
Within the preferences dialog, choose "Printing".
At the bottom is a pair of Radio Buttons for "Standard character placement"
or "Precise character placement"

Clicking "Precise character placement" should print the character exactly
the way that they appear on the screen.

let me know how it goes.
