Trouble with downloading fonts


Recommended Posts

I tried to download a font awhile back, and it didn't work, of course. But following that everythime I enter and try to open fonts, I'll scroll down to Mufferaw and it goes back up to Arnprior, and a notice pops up saying: There was an unhandled error and Paint.Net must be closed. Refer to 'pdncrash.log' which has been placed on your desktop for more information.

That means I can't even use all the already downloaded fonts, plus downloading new fonts is out until I know what the problem is. So what now?

I had the same type error after removing some of the extra fonts I never use. Removing fonts that come with XP makes PDN crash. Simply putting the fonts back dosent help. Removing and reinstalling PDN after putting the fonts back dosent help. had to do a system restore.

After spending all morning screwing with the whole affair I found a program called font frenzy.

This is a free program that will restore your fonts to the windows default and allow PDN to work again. Some programs come with fonts and having a lot of fonts seems to slow things down and makes finding the ones you use a nightmare if you have to many.

Font frenzy fixed everything up and now I keep a seperate file of my downloaded fonts for a back up if i ever need to refrenzy the whole thing again.

Font frenzy has quite a few very useful functions I didnt list including installing your new fonts for you. Go check it out, very simple and easy to use program IMO.

Thanks for the help unforgiven. I'll check it out.

Srry about not putting it in troubleshooting. Also, I do have an up to date version of paint. I have vs. 3.05. I know its not the most current, but I shouldn't have to change programs everytime you make a tiny .5 fix. I'll do it when the real change comes like 3.2,3.5,4.0, etc. I think we should be able to fix our problems from the version we have.

Anyways, thanks for the suggestions. :)

From the second stickied post on this forum:

We absolutely cannot and will not provide help for anything but the latest version of Paint.NET.

But:

...I shouldn't have to change programs everytime you make a tiny .5 fix. I'll do it when the real change comes like 3.2,3.5,4.0, etc. I think we should be able to fix our problems from the version we have.

That doesn't make sense. In the slightest. Rick releases the "tiny fixes" to fix the bugs brought up in this thread, so if you're posting a question here, we have a perfect right to completely ignore you if you don't have the latest version. Seriously, automatic updating takes two minutes, tops. Save us all some time (and some nerves!) and play by the rules. 'k? K. :-) Thanks!

Now update. Now. :-)

No, I can see you not doing it. Get going! Come on!

...

You're still not doing it, are you? Come on. Please?

There ya go. Good job. Thanks!

Having the latest version is required. This is clearly stated in the rules. If you won't update, then we cannot help you. Every release contains numerous fixes.

I think we should be able to fix our problems from the version we have.

How could you possibly know more about Paint.NET than me?

If you will not install the latest update, then I will just close this thread. Simple as that.

You do realize how dumb it is not to keep your programs up to date, right? I mean, who cares about the latest definition files for my antivirus, they are just tiny updates.

What Rick and david says is true, you should update, as the update isn't tiny just because it only increased the version by 0.05.

Go here: http://www.getpaint.net/roadmap.html and you will see that there have been more than 40 changes since 3.05 was released.
