I have added 2 fonts Avenir family, and use them in a design, when I print from design all is well

I run through a workflow process and the fonts are ignored, style 1 font is used

I run through debug and fonts are correct!

Any idea why when i run through a normal workflow process the new fonts are not used! Driving me mad!

Have you rebooted your server since installing the fonts?

When you install a font in Windows, only windowed applications are notified of the system change. The Workflow service is not a windowed application and therefore retains the same list of fonts that were available when the system booted.

The Workflow Configuration tool and the PlanetPress Designer are both windowed applications, which is why they are aware of the new fonts.
