Sounds like you just need to install fonts the standard way and not use RegisterFont. I doubt it'll work otherwise.

Well, darn hogwash!

I have installed the KaiTi.ttf font on my Windows 10 machine.
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/typography/font-list/kaiti
https://freefontsdownload.net/free-simkai-font-137629.htm

I can see KaiTi listed in Control Panel | Fonts (showing as 'KaiTi Regular'), and it also appears when running MS Word.

 

However in Paint.NET v4.2.9 it does not appear. Any suggestions would be welcome.

 

Thanks,
David

Make sure the KaiTi font is not set to Hidden in the Control Panel.

That worked perfectly @toe_head2001 on my Win10 box. Thank you for that Windows tip - I had no idea you could Show/Hide fonts, where this was appearing as Hide despite it showing up in MS Word. Once I toggled it to Show and restarted Paint.NET, it appeared in its list and worked perfectly.

 

Attaching screenshot for those who may not be familiar on how to get to this point in Windows, with relevant information highlighted in red.

 

Cheers - David
