I noticed that Corel Draw doesn't show a proper glyph preview of PostScript fonts. It only shows empty glyphs (see screenshot). Other than that this font seems to work fine. When I double click on an empty looking glyph, it will also insert the correct glyph. I just don't see what I'm clicking on.I tried to install the font with Corel Font Manager, but even there I see the same thing in the glyph preview.Is there a way of fixing this? I'd really need to see those glyphs.
Thanks in advance!
It is working fine here but I don't have that specific font.Maybe it is corrupt or incomplete?Does it work with other fonts?
Hm, I just looked what other PostScript fonts I have on my computer. Two don't work, three others do.The strange thing is, one that doesn't work is one that I made. When I export it as TrueType, it shows fine. But it doesn't as PostScript (that's how I concluded it must have to do with this and apparently just chose another one that doesn't work for comparison.)Anyway, I guess it's not Corel Draw's fault then since I got working ones too.
I don't think the issue involves Postscript Type 1 fonts. I've seen the same preview glitch with various OpenType fonts too. The bug is annoying, particularly when some kind of symbol font is involved. Sometimes I end up having to open Adobe Illustrator and use its Glyphs palette to access the characters I want. But the font has to be installed into the OS to show up in Illustrator, unlike fonts in a collection folder to be accessed (or ignored) by Font Manager.
Interesting to know. I only have a very ancient version of Illustrator that I never use and I didn't even know it has a glyphs palette. I'll look and see if those fonts work there. For now I'm using the Windows character map, but that's pretty annoying too because it shows the glyphs so small. I have no idea what I could change in the settings of my font program, it all seems correct. So I might have to put up with it.
Btw - my font isn't a Type1 font. It's a PostScript based OTF font.
