I have several files created in Fireworks CS3 that work fine. Fonts are all installed in the system directory on my Win7 box. This used to be a WinXP Pro box.
I can load a file into Fireworks CS3 without a single issue and the text all looks perfect. The way it should. Close CS3, open CS5 and load the same file and CS5 tells me I have to update my fonts. Why? Same system, same fonts in the same fonts directory. Only thing that's changed is that I'm opening the file(s) in CS5.
The fonts do not look the same in CS5. Am I going to have to redo every Fireworks CS3 file so that it looks correct in CS5? If so, why?
Here's a sample image the way it's supposed to look. The Swift gets hosed. PlazaDUtil is the font. I'd hate to have to redo all my logo files.
Prior to CS4 Fireworks used the Macromedia type engine. From CS4 forward, adobe introduced the adobe type engine to improve text handling/integration between FW AI and PS. As a result moving CS3 files over to cs4 forces FW to update the fonts.
