Some fonts not available


Recommended Posts

If the font isn't supported by DirectWrite, then it won't work in Paint.NET.

 

Bitmap fonts, in particular, will no longer work. Thankfully these are essentially legacy fonts that aren't created anymore.

Which fonts aren't working?

 

It'd be nice if I can verify what type of fonts they are, and make sure it's not my code which is causing the discrepancy.

I'm not sure but right now it's only enumerating the TrueType fonts.

 

paint.net 4.0 gets the font list from GDI and filters to only the TrueType fonts. Device and Raster fonts are excluded. However, I remember making that choice when I didn't know whether Device or Raster fonts would work, so it wasn't a design choice or necessarily an inherent limitation. 

 

I'll check into this some more tonight ...
