'Bad' fonts

Post by phb » Thu Nov 07, 2002 10:13 am

I'm having problems with free and purchased fonts which worked fine under W98 but give a "not a valid font file" error under W2K; presumably for the reasons listed elsewhere on the forum.
Some of these can be opened in FC running under W98 and the missing fields added.

However, several of them give a "The system is out of memory" error when I try to open them in FC with W98, when it definitely is not.

Is there any way of overcoming this so that these fonts can be corrected to run under W2K?

I have tried the MS 'Font Properties Editor' and, whilst this loads the fonts, it doesn't indicate if all the fields are present, nor does it allow them to be edited!

Can you send the font file to me, so I can investigate the problem?
