I'm on Windows 7 running Illustrator 32bit cs5.1
I've been having a lot of problems with fonts lately. I was using Suitcase Fusion 3, and it was just misbehaving really badly. I figured out the problems with that program, was able to restore my computer to the point where it only had the original fonts, but now I still have this problem:
In both Illustrator and Photoshop, it lists a lot of fonts that are uninstalled. When I click on them, the screen just flashes and then it goes to the font I last used.
Through my extensive but ultimately useless googling, I've found that I need to clear the Adobe or Illustrator font cache. It's not my Windows font cache, I've deleted that twice already, so that's fresh. It's definitely Adobe. So how do I do this? Or is there a different solution to these nonexistent fonts that won't leave my font menu?
Thanks Wade and Mike.
I figured it out without using either of your advice, incidentally. It was quite a hassle. In the end I just needed to use the Windows Font Cache and do a restart (I hadn't restarted yet, I think that was key).
My indesign CS6 draft documents, at first, really work well.
Fonts don't quite work anymore in Indesign . . . Adobe have anything to do with that?
Nobody . . . except their customers. Among whom I not one . . . not any longer.
Maybe Adobe missed a Microsoft Windows 8 update and didn't pass the update along to legacy customers?
Looks that way to me. How does it look to you?
Have all of a sudden . . . have your Adobe fonts shown as corrupted in Adobe software . . . but work perfectly well in other software? What's going on?
Future bug fixes promised by Adobe to those who choose not to rent their software . . . pending not introductory offers by Adobe?
Or . . . what?
Why when I edit an Indesign document, software reports (adobe) fonts are not available, but I see in they are available to Microsoft Office applications?
What gives? Thanks for any advice in the earth born world.
