Font Problem


Recommended Posts

I have fonts that are properly installed on my computer but when I try to use them in Paint.net they don't show up. When I go to "Manage Fonts" in Paint.net it opens the font folder but when I click on the font I want it says it is already installed. Anyone know how I can get this font working in Paint.net?

May thanks guys and gals! Happy Christmas!

I'm having the same problem.

I just installed a font called "Aardvark Cafe" (available at many font download sites). But I can't see it whenever I load up PDN.

I've since reinstalled the font several times (overwriting each time) from different sites, and I get the same result.

And yes, I HAVE restarted PDN each time to allow the program to refresh itself.

Funny thing, though...

I used to use this font all the time with PDN, until I reformatted my computer a couple of months ago. Since I downloaded 3.5.6, I can't find it.

Help!

It may be that you have installed a bad font. I believe Rick has said it may be fixed in an upcoming release. When that will be is entirely up to Rick. Be patient or try a font of similar style and see if that work.

Son of Spam, IIRC, there is no v.3.5.6. We have currently v. 3.5.1.

Officially retired from this forum. Have a nice day.

LOL! You're absolutely right...

I wanted to hit the "About" link in the Help Menu to find out which version I was using. Inadvertently, I clicked on Firefox's Help>About!

:oops:

Anyway, when I click on Font Manager, I can see the particular font I'm looking for in the Windows Fonts folder.

But when I request it using PDN, it's not listed. What more do I need to do to access this font?

eternalwonderer,

I've never had to use it myself.

If you right-click on the Paint.NET desktop shortcut,

then click on Properties, click again to put the mouse

cursor at the end of the text in the address box labeled Target.

Then hit the spacebar once and type in:

/disableDirectWrite

Then, Apply, OK.

I think that is correct, but can't guarantee it.
