Topic: Converting a courier text file into PDF

Hi, I was trying for the first time to convert a sample text file (a COBOL report) to a pdf. I expect the page breaks will be all wrong (just investigating so far), but the font...

How do I convert a Notepad text file with a monospace font like vanilla Courier so the columns line up?

----+----1----+-
ColumnA ColumnB
0.00 1.00
2.00 12.00

The above lines do not line up because of the style sheet's verdana font, but all four lines have exactly sixteen characters.

I've looked through the Distiller settings, but I don't get it.

Thanks,
Paul
