TT fonts are changing after selection

TT fonts are changing after selection - 10/05/17 12:01 PM

I'm starting to have issues where the font style will change immediately after selecting. For example I choose TT Times New Roman and then click OK. I immediately reopen that style and now it shows me Times New Roman Italic. I choose Times New Roman Bold and it switches to Texta. I've also tried copying/Paste a Times New Roman style that was saved in another job and it shows Times New shows like it stays but when I start working it switches again. This same thing has happened with other fonts also so it isn't just a Times New Roman issue. Any thoughts?

Hi Starke,

This is a known issue in PlanetPress, in that sometimes, you will select a font, but the actual selected font will be another one a few steps above it. It's in fact a very old issue dating back to PlanetPress 4, and it is due to limitations in the way PlanetPress Design is made that it probably won't ever be fixed.

However, there is a simple workaround: select a font a few steps below the one you want. Since it will pick up a font above it, it will end up picking the right font.

Thanks for the work around. I'll try it out. Would reinstalling Planet Press perhaps fix it?
