Paint Shop Pro 7 for Beginners
Program Crashes with Font Use

I'm not sure if this qualifies as a suitable question, but I've found that my copy of Paintshop Pro crashes when I try to use any downloaded fonts.

I'm running on Windows XP, but I never had this problem when I was running on '98. I can't even find anything online that might help.

The files aren't bugged, and I've reinstalled the program twice to try to fix any missing files or whatnot, but that hasn't helped. Also, when I installed the fonts, they went in properly and without problem. I can use them in any other program, even PSP9.

Mods, if this is not what the community is here for, go right ahead and delete this. I tried, right?

Community members, if you have any wisdom or tips, please help. This is very frustrating, as I can't use my favorite font in my favorite program.

Thanks so much in advance.

Windows XP can be a pain sometimes, but it beats Vista all to hell. (smile)

(An aside: I recently had to deal with Vista, and literally came running back with open arms to Windows XP...)

Have you used all the various fixes that have been shared here, or no? I'd suggest you start with those...

What font are you talking about, by the way?

Generally speaking, if we're talking about True Type fonts, you should be fine. You might want to see these entries related to fonts, too.

I'm unsure if you know how to use our community MEMORIES and/or TAGS, but do check the links...

Let me know if any of that helps, will you? If not, I might have some additional suggestions.

Oh! By the way, this sort of question is just fine for this community. And I appreciate that your subject line reflects your question! (Thanks.)

In all honestly, I tried searching the memories, but I had absolutely no idea where I should've started looking.

The font in question is the Jane Austen font, which I got from dafont a few weeks ago.

I have to go to work now, but I'll try the fixes when I get home this afternoon. Thanks so much for helping! I greatly appreciate it. :D

You are absolutely divine. The fixes solved my problem, and now I can't wait to make graphics again.

Thank you so much!

ps. am memory'ing this just in case it happens again, I won't need to drive myself insane searching for the fixes. :D

I'm delighted to hear that the fixes worked for you.

Happily, they've saved my backside many times, too. (smile)
