I upgraded to CS5 a little while back and since then I have been having "font" problems. I like to type out a word and then go to the charater pallet and then scroll thru the font list to see how that word will look in diffrent fonts. Well it use to work GREAT and now it's hit or miss (more miss) when it works......now when I'm scrolling down thru them it will all the sudden jump to the bottom of the list where there is about 5 fonts and just scroll thru those but even there it will mix the fonts up un the word (so each letter is potentially a diffrent font).
Any advise would be greatful!!
Piece of cake - Clean your font caches.
It's not an issue limited to CS5 - it can affect any version.
Hi, I'm getting the same issue, but cleaning the font caches hasn't seemed to work.
It's only illustrator which has this problem, when scrolling font's if it comes to a font it doesn't like (even if these fonts load fine in other programs) it skips down to the bottom of the list and just cycles through them instead.
