Dear Adobe Community:
I am using the text tool and adding text to a document. This is "artistic" text, not paragraph text without any appearance filters or effects applied. When I try to choose a different font than the default which I believe is Myriad Pro, Illustrator does not update the font change. I have tried other programs such as CorelDraw (I am on Windows Vista Ultimate, 64-bit) which update the fonts without a problem. Is there something wrong with my Illustrator configuration? I just used Illustrator the other day to do the same thing and I didn't experience any problems. It was a different file, though, so maybe my file is corrupt? Please assist.
This problem seems to be an issue with a typical Windows error where you have to RESTART the computer in order for anomalies to go away. That's what I did--restarted--and now the file works fine.
