Do you get this error message while opening a specific document or all? Which version of Photoshop are you using?
Refer this thread: Selected font failed during last operation
Here is the article that you can follow: Troubleshoot fonts issues in Adobe Photoshop CC, 2015, 2014, CS6, CS5
I am getting the same problem opening some specific documents which used to work fine. I can't open them at all now. How can I recover them?

Solution: Suitcase Fusion needed to be reinstalled after Windows Creator update because Font Activation got broken. All working now.
I don't understand. How do I fix this problem. Font failed.
Hi dv8kiwi don't understand what you mean. what's suitcase fusion?
Windows font management software by Extensis
I'm getting the same error message. Is Suitcase Fusion a native Windows application or is it a separate thing altogether?

This is what worked for me (Win 10 and Photoshop CC 2017 after Creator update from Windows):
Exit Photoshop and the Creative Cloud desktop app (if installed).
Navigate to the AppData folder
\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2017
Delete CT Font Cache folder (or change the name to CT Font Cache folder.del if you want to play it safe first)
Based on original post from https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1602997
The link listed here gives a 404 error

Here's what fixed mine (Windows 10):
- Go to the windows start menu, and search "Show hidden files and folders"
- Go to "Hidden files and folders" folder > Select the "Show hidden files, folders, and drives" button > OK
( This allows you to see the App Data folder. )
- Navigate to your C Drive > Users > [Username] > App Data > Roaming > Adobe > [ Photoshop version ]
- Delete the CT Font Cache folder
- Restart photoshop
Thank you for your detailed information. I finally found the CT Font Cache because of them. However I had resolved the problem prior to receiving the infno.
What I did, after uninstalling all my CC programs & rebooting twice without having the problem go away. Since I needed to get a project done I decided to go to Elements that was also on my machine only to find that I couldn't use it either. Not the same problem, it just shut down after I loaded all my photos. So I uninstalled Elements, rebooted & reinstalled it. I was able to finish my project with Elements.
I had made an appointment with my IT the next morning, but decided to try PS CC once more & found that it must have been something in Elements that was causing the problem because now it worked fine.
Hope this might help someone else.
Thank you so much!!! This helped immensely!
that fixed the prob in 30 sec flat. thanks heaps
It worked for me! Thank you. (Windows 10 user)
