Hi, for a long while now we've been having trouble with all our IDW's, whenever we put a dimension or text with the diameter symbol it plots as 'Q'.
Even in print preview it still appears as the diameter symbol, although when actually printed, it comes out as 'Q'. To combat this in the meantime we have firstly been creating PDF's which display the correct diameter symbol and then printing.

I seem to remember having a similar problem a while ago - solved with a reinstall of the printer driver, even though the system was telling me that the correct, latest driver was installed. I persuaded the network guys to reinstall the network driver also, and that did the trick!
(If memory serves correctly, it was a Hewlett Packard printer, not sure if that is relevant, but possibly worth mentioning...)
Since we upgraded our server and PC's now running XP 64 bit everytime we log on it prompts us to find the correct printer drivers. So somethings definatly not right there although as far as we knew it wasn't affecting anything. Aparntly its going to be looked at in the near future, seems like it'd be the cause though. I'll post if/when the drivers are looked at and if it fixes it.
