Fences fails to work with any newly installed truetype fonts.

Friday, May 31, 2019 by NjnaG | Discussion: Fences

Greetings, 

 

I was just building out a new PC and installed fences on it and wanted to customize it a bit.  I installed about 200+ TT fonts.  I started going through them and after the first 30 gave up as they all respond with this same error shown in the screenshot above.  I've seen this issue mentioned here and there in other threads.  Is there any time frame to have TT support fully implemented?

Hello,

My guess is that those are not really truetype fonts. From my digging. I found this : https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2521341

Thank you,

Well if that's the case and otf fonts are masquerading under the .ttf file extensions then I guess I'd like to request that Fences support the full range of windows fonts.  I can send samples if needed.  I specifically went and got those fonts due to the claims of them being TTF and to use with Fences.

Just checking back again for any status on either exclusion of incompatible fonts from the selection list or full windows font support.

Sorry to hear you are having trouble.

Can you indeed provide a link?

Sure.

Here's one of the fonts (of many) that just don't work.
