Font Crash?

Try seeing if there's another version of the font or re-downloading it, if you want PDN to work you'll (more than likely) have to sort that font out.

Son, someday you will make a girl happy for a short period of time. Then she'll leave you & be with men that are ten times

better than you can imagine. These men are called musicians. :D

Thanks for your reply. In the end I have rebuilt the font (which is an internal product of our firm) by copying the glyphs I needed into another font; now Paint.NET is no longer bothered by it. Still, I would have preferred that Paint.NET simply ignored the font, since I will only ever use it for one particular document, and certainly never in any graphics.

It's a .NET framework thing; it's not anything PdN specific. Complain to Microsoft :-)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Thanks for the explanation and the tip about Microsoft. I have been trying to find something on the net about font problems with the NET framework, because it might be useful to be able to test fonts for compatibility, but so far I have not found anything. Anyway, since the NET framework installed despite a number of apparently defective fonts, it does seem to be less finnicky.

.NET will install just fine, but as soon as it tries to access the bad font, it throws up its hands in surrender.

Thanks, I'm glad you can confirm that - or am I misunderstanding you? Allthough at a point PDN would not even install, and to get back to the version which would at least start, I copied the whole PDN-folder from another computer which worked perfectly (tip from another topic in this forum).
