  1. Font Corrupted


    I have a pdf drawing file and there is a font that is showing up as all squares. this happens in Adobe Acrobat, Blue Beam, Edge, Chrome. It is on three machines. The file is in my dropbox and when I go to view the file on dropbox it opens it up in chrome and the file displays properly. I assume Dropbox pulls the fonts differently when viewing it locally. I tried sfc /scannow and no luck.

    If I select the text that are squares and I can paste it in a text file and it displays the correct text

    I tried the bat file form TenForums on fixing the font cache and that did not work.

    Any ideas?

    :)

    In addition you can try:


    • Stop Windows Font Cache service in services.msc.

    • Run C-Cleaner System / Font Cache option.

    • Start Windows Font Cache service again.

    If you have Ccleaner installed it's possible that you'd need CCEnhancer to see the font cache option.

    If you don't have it - read this:

    Hello,

    I found these steps in this forum from back in 2010:

    Step 1:

    I would suggest you to try these steps and check whether it helps in fixing your issue.

    Open font settings by clicking on start, click on control panel, and then click on appearance and personalization, under fonts click on change font settings. And select the font size.

    Step 2:

    If you’re trying to change windows font size then please follow the steps below:

    To change Windows fonts

    metrics
    .

    2. In the Item list, click the part of Windows that you want to change the font for. For example, if you want to change the menu font, click Menu in the list. Then, make any of the following changes:

    · In the Font list, click the font that you want to use.

    · In the Size list, click the font size that you want.
