[FIXED] Can't open font - "Wrong DICT byte 1"

Post by ashtangakasha » Sun Mar 13, 2016 6:26 am

This font installs without problems via MainType 6.0 Pro, and also via Win10 native installer. It works correctly (although the design is in the early stages).

Unfortunately, I can't develop it further in FontCreator 9.1 Pro because it won't load, either from disk or while installed. The error message is "Wrong DICT byte 1."

I would love to be able to work on this font, so please let me know if there's any way to get around this load error.

Thanks in advance,

Allen

I am sure that Erwin will need the font to see what the issue is.

I am having the same issue. I checked to see if the version I am using has an update however it only shows the paid upgrade to version 10. Is it possible to resolve the issue without paying the upgrade fee? Thanks
