I have a BIG problem!

most of the fonts I install don't show up in ie. flash.

On my PC I put the truetype files in the "fonts" folder in windows....BUT...they don't show up in flash!!!...WHY!!

this never used to happen and I'm doing the exact same thing as I've always done...but suddenly it doesn't work!!

I always used to zip the ttf. files into the font directory and they worked in flash but now I have loads of fonts in that folder that I can't use...

what's wrong!
this is driving me mad!
should I reinstall my win98?

someone give me a clue what to do please!

thanx in advance!

Right .... i have this problem sometimes when either:

a) I've installed too many fonts (900 + and it starts getting shakey)


b) there has been an explorer crash which has taken out a chunk of memory and seems to kill off the font list in Flash too.

(then again it might be a Flash 5 bug, cos it happens a lot more since Flash 5)

Hope this helps!

...but this goes for all progs that uses fonts...photoshop,freehand...etc...

...so it seems it's more of a Windows thing?

how did you solve the problem?

I removed some fonts, so there were less!
