Disappearing Fonts

Tonight, I opened up my latest flier design to make modifications to it and notice that something did not look right. The First 2 Fonts in the headline of the flier were Gone!:eek:! They were substituted with a something plane, straight and boring (default I guess). I could not for the life of me figure out how they disappeared or were they went to. I was so frustrated, I was about to pull my hair out. Luckily, I don’t have enough hair to get a good grip on, so I decided instead to see if I could find a way to replace the fonts. (you can highlight text and it will still tell you what font it is supposed to be even if its not installed) After some research on ‘the Google’ I managed to find this webpage:


I don’t know if something like this has ever happened to any of you or if you know why fonts would disappear like that, but if it does, hopefully this will help you replace them.

Let’s try to help instead of just keep adding to the post count.

I don’t know if I understand your problem exactly … just the 2 first letters are not showing and the rest is fine, and ALL this letters are using the same font ?

I’d try to uninstall that specific font from the system and re-install it.

Default folder for fonts in Windows is “c:\windows\fonts”, go there, erase that font, restart, install it again, restart, and see what happens. Not saying that will do it, but this is what I would do based on my interpretation of your post.

Actually, if you can fathom it, I posted for a completely different reason.
