PS Fonts Not Activating


Why are my PostScript fonts not being activated? I have added PS fonts to a set in SF5, activated the typeface I desire, but they’re not appearing properly on my screen in Word. What gives?


Hi there,

Frequently when we see problems with fonts appearing on the system once they have been active it is due to a conflicting font on the system.

In Suitcase, if you see much more than about 150 fonts listed in the “System Fonts” section, you’re likely encountering conflicts.

I would recommend pruning your system font collection by going into the fonts folder, moving the entire collection to a folder for safe keeping, and deleting every item in the fonts folder. Windows utilizes font protection, so it will preserve the fonts needed for the operating system during this operation.
