New fonts not available in Paint.NET


Recommended Posts

Greetings,

Newly instaled fonts (ttf) show up in Word, Paint & Infran View. In Paint.Net, I get the yellow triangle/black exclamation point nest to the font name.

Thanks in advance for your time

Thanks for the reply. The fonts were installed the same way that you (Swankyfrank) did. They're installed correctly as they do show in all of my programs that handle fonts. Since 1st posting, I've un/re-installed both Paint.NET & the fonts. Unblocked them in the fonts folder and tapped out "Gerorge of the Jungle" on my laptop and said..."work" while opening the program. That's all I got.

This is my Diagnostics the

 

Video Card    Microsoft Basic Render Driver

Clinking around trying to find something on that brought me to

hopefully it is of some help.

 Darned if  I know.

I'd follow up on that last post.

So far I've seen something about Windows Update which I don't have a link to,

and enabling hidden fonts in 7

http://www.emreakkas.com/windows-tips/how-to-enable-hidden-fonts-in-windows-7 

All very time consuming and frustrating.

That's a good luck from me, maybe someone else here can pick up,

but Windows answers may be your best bet.

This has nothing to do with video card or driver stuff.

 

If the fonts show up with a little yellow triangle, then it means DirectWrite (the text/font engine that paint.net uses) can't process it. Either the font is corrupt or there's a bug in DirectWrite. In any event there's nothing I can do on my end to fix things, unfortunately.

 

For the record, the Alanus font that you linked to works just fine on my system (Windows 8.1). Maybe you need to make sure you have all of your Windows Updates installed?

Problem resolved

I checked my update history for an AMD Graphics Adapter and uninstalled AMD Display Driver  Version 13.152_130830a-161907c-Toshiba Released 10/13/2013. Toshiba Service Station displayed this message: "Toshiba recommends installing this component that has been updated to support Windows 8.1".

I clicked Ignore and opened Windows Update. Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. Graphics Adapter WDDM1.3 software update released in April, 2014

was available under optional updates. I installed the Win update and all fonts display.

Thank you to all.
