Re: will not recognize fonts

Well, right now can't get to that. When I opened 4.0 last it indicated there were new updates. downloaded from your site but got an error that it can't write over old files. Then when I try and start current copy of 4.0, says it "fails to initialize" and wont run. Should I uninstall and redownload? ...

Re: Open Type Development

I have had major problems with all Open Type Fonts, they don't show up, or don't show up as loaded, won't show in a pdf. I am going to see if the new 3.0 version has addressed this. Could be an Adobe problem or Vista. Have not encountered this before.

Re: Asian fonts showed up, make them go away

That is the version that I am using, 2.2 build 52. And as a side issue, it is really slow and a pain in the butt to wait and wait on it to finally show all the fonts and quit scrolling so that you can work with the program.

Re: Asian fonts showed up, make them go away

If I select tab "Keyboards and Languages" and select "How can I install different language packages?" my screen does not match instructions th...

Re: Asian fonts showed up, make them go away

OK, found Language Support in Windows Control panel. everywhere it shows that US English is the selected format, I don't see anywhere to turn off Asian Language. BTW, in MainType the "@" shows up as Asian characters. Is there a place in Adobe to turn off? Although, this appeared in several adobe pro...

Asian fonts showed up, make them go away

I recently switched to a very functional, no problems XP system with MainType to a problem ridden Vista OS. All of a sudden about a hundred Asian fonts have shown up in my fonts on InDesign, Pagemaker, Illustrator and I assume Photoshop. They look like this on Pagemaker: @Adobe Fangson Std. R, or @ ...

I have to reload the same fonts everytime I open the document. In this case it is Garamond Book Condensed, Myriad Cond and Myr...
