Recommended Posts

This program crashes whenever I try to use the text feature, I get the same error message over and over again.

can anyone decode this? I am about to try and find the older version because this is seriously aggrivating.

would it more likely than not be a non-microsoft based font?

Im guessing its something conflicting with the .net framework, though not sure, a friend of mine is having the same issue with his photoshop ... so im not sure.

ok, i manually had to go through all the fonts i had installed, i figured out which one.

sorry all

Resolving this error requires fixing the corrupted fonts. On Windows this can be accomplished using the following steps:

1) Copy all fonts from C:/WINNT/Fonts to a different directory. For example, C:/fonts_temp.

2) Delete all fonts from C:/WINNT/Fonts.

3) Drag and drop (copy) all fonts from C:/fonts_temp to C:/WINNT/Fonts. This copy will reinstall the fonts and detect any corrupt/damaged fonts.

After these steps are complete, restart the Agent application or Agent installer.

Quick and easy!

No. Way. I've just seen Bob. And... *poof!*—just like that—he disappears into the mist again. ~Helio

You could do the same thing with PDN. Copy all the font files back to the C:/Windows/Fonts folder one at a time. Then open Paint.net after adding each additional font.

Another obvious question that has not been asked, how many fonts do you have? Only having 509mb of memory and trying to load a couple hundred fonts is gonna be a problem.
