anyone have any ideas?
I figured it out when I moved to a new machine. The problem had something to do with the Fonts management portion of coldfusion. On my last machine (the one with the error) the Font Management tab of the CF administrator was blank. On my new machine, the Font Management tab lists a boat load of fonts and the cfdocument functionality is restored.
i had a similar issue in the beginning after i installed cf8 dev
edition: it picked up only a small sub-set of fonts installed on my
laptop. cfmx7 on the same laptop had all the fonts listed.
in cf8 admin you can add more fonts in the Font Management section by
pointing to a folder containing the fonts (i.e. C:\Windows\Fonts)
hmm... i just went to check that, and was presented with an error "
Element Candara is undefined in a Java object of type class
coldfusion.util.FastHashtable." on the Font Management page in my cf8
admin... better go check what's going on...
was it a 64-bit Windows Server by any chance?
I'm having the same issue (same error message) only with 64-bit Windows servers (32-bit servers are fine).
also, registering fonts via CF admin on 64-bit servers does not work.
if you have any info that can help resolve the issues I'm having, would you please let me know?
thank you very much!
