Missing Font

  profi 22:05 28 Sep 2004

Following advice in the magazine, I cleaned up unnecessary programs, fonts, and other detritus. However, I now find I cannot open some letterhead templates as intended, because a font called Trajan Bold is missing. This is a PS Font, and I have tried to copy it over from my previous computer. Although it shows in the folder PSFonts, it appears in the Fonts folder with a shortcut arrow on it - and, what's worse, I can't select it at all in Word 'cos it's not listed! Any idea how to restore it?

Getting weirder - if I double click on Trajan Bold in PS Fonts, or Fonts where I have now copied it, it shows me examples of the font. Whilst still open I can locate it in Word, OE, etc and use it. However it ain't 'sticky' since when I close those windows, the data in Word, OE etc reverts to something else!!

it can't just be copied - maybe right click and see options ;)

Snatos7 - the KB article number does not exist (or is not available). Would you mind re-checking the number? Thanx.

Thanks Santos7 - and my aps for misspelling!

Have managed to make Trajan 'stick' at the moment by deleting it from Fonts, and then using Control Panel, Fonts, File, Instal new font, and installing Trajan from PSFonts. Will now see if it remains after a reboot ... if not, I will follow the drastic steps in the KB article.
