Win 7 SP2; AI CS6
I have intalled fonts using the install button on the windows font viewer. At first, AI sees all the fonts. Then, later, the fonts are gone. (They have an asterisk next to it, but it does not come up in the missing fonts list.)
Hi, The fonts are enabled.
Here are some of my thoughts about AI CS6: It is best to use Open Type fonts, *.otf. If you use True Type Fonts, be sure to back save into an older version, say, CS4 format. When I did this, the "fonts disappearing" problem (an asterisk next to the font's name) went away. Windows 7 does not seem to recognize "Type 1" fonts at all.
That is all I can think. Otherwise, upgrading to an Open Type font seems to have solved the problem.
clear your font cache.
with no apps open
delete windows/systems 32/Fntcache.dat
Defintely go with the newer font technology whenever possible. Truetype is usually not as much problem as the type 1 fonts (.pfb. .pfm)
