    Word cannot display the requested font


    Windows 10 / Office 365
    On one of my systems, when opening files which contain a font "Sanchez", I get the following message. All the other systems are OK.

    "There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font."

    I've tried deleting normal.dot etc. and removing the printer drivers, and can confirm there are no addins. But here's the thing, if I create a document with a few words of the same font (Sanchez) and have this open, then all the other documents open fine. If I close my test document, then the other documents fail again.

    Any ideas?

    :)

    Changing the default font on Microsoft Word 2010 has no effect on new pages

    Perform the following steps to set the default font for new Microsoft Word 2010 documents.

    1. Right click the "Normal" Style on the Home ribbon and click Modify.
    2. Change the font to Times New Roman, 12 (or whatever you would prefer).
    3. Select the "New documents based on this template" option.
    4. Click OK
    5. Close and reopen Microsoft Word to confirm.

    For Microsoft Excel, perform these steps:

    1. Select File menu, Options item.
    2. Select the General category.
    3. Change "When creating new workbooks, use this font"
    4. Click OK to confirm
    5. Restart Microsoft Excel as instructed.

    Mail - Outlook cannot display the requested font


    Hi

    I've connected the Mail app to my Gmail account. It can access my mail without problem but when I try and open an email I get the following message

    There is insufficient memory or disk space. Outlook cannot display the requested font

    This only happens on the first email selected.

    The email is displayed but most of the text is missing. Images are displayed and text which I am guessing does not use default values e.g. different font and possibly style.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
