Default Words in Text Box cut off on right margin

I have tried all that I can think of and cannot figure it out! I have a number of reports in which I use text boxes for paragraphs of text. When I design the report in CR (version 9) everything looks fine. I ensure that the right edge of the text box does not come close to the edge of the page, and I also set the margin (in page setup) to .5, instead of the default .25. Yet still, when I run the reports, some of them cut off text on the right margin. The text is being cut off, despite the fact that it is not close to the edge of the report. I cannot figure this problem out. It is something that I have been working on for months.

Additionally, I have verified that the fonts used in the reports are available on the server, too! So that is not the problem.

I will be forever in your debt for any assistance that you might be able to provide. THANKS in advance,
 - Austin

I had a similar issue... Make sure you have the same printer divers installed on the server with the same name as the printer on your development machine. Although you're not actually printing from the server Crystal uses the server print drivers to set up margins and such.
