I have an multilingual software. It works in xp and vista. In some computer when i installed the fonts the windows shows the fonts well. even it shows in adobe photoshop and other application. but only in pagemaker either it is version 7 or 6.5 fonts are not listed in this application. i have tried reinstalling the pagemaker freshly, still the same problem. what is the cause? the computer have already hundreds of fonts installed, but only newly installed fonts are not displaying. Please guide what to do?

Uninstall some of those fonts, pagemaker can't seem to handle hundreds of fonts. A better idea would be to get a font management program and use it to activate only those fonts that you need for a particular project.
The Western/European version of PM does not handle multi-byte fonts at all, and can only see the first 255 glyphs of a font anyway.
You could try trashing all the PM configuration files (PM*.cnf) and the font caches (AdobeFnt*.lst) - they will be re-generated the next time the application is loaded. This used to be helpful in the old days, but PM doesn't play 100% with WinXP SP3 when it comes to fonts, and anything can happen with Vista.
