Recently I have tried to do some typography work on my outstanding projects. And unfortunately I have ran into a problem with displaying 2 of the typefaces and all of their available characters to view in the INSERT CHARACTER docker on the right of the screen. The message I get when I try to view the entire alphabet is "install or download to preview glyphs". The typefaces are open type. I have used corel draw for years and never encountered this issue. I have removed any double installations and only have the 2 version normal and bold. See the picture for ref. Thanks to anyone who can help. I can offer more information in case I have left anything out to help the case.
Works fine here but I can run a test on this machine on X8 if you want to send over the font.
I seen this in another post...
If you have a previous version of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, rename the following folder: "C:\\Users\\<username>\\AppData\\Roaming\\Corel\\FontDatabase\\V1\\" and then try launching the applications.
If you do not have a previous version of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, rename the following folder: "C:\\Users\\<username>\\AppData\\Roaming\\Corel\\Databases\\V2.1\\" and then try launching the applications.
But when i rename the V1 folder. Corel x8 just re-creates V1. As i called mine V2. So how do i rename the folder to reset database. As in the folder there is loads of files. But not touching those files.
I've had that font display issue crop up a couple times before. Usually re-booting would fix it. Or I could open Corel Font Manager and refresh the fonts list and then re-launch CorelDRAW.
Hi only have the home and student version x8 of coreldraw. But as mentioned there is a files in the corel database folder in roaming...and still to this day nobody wants to talk what to do with those files.
A roaming user profile is a file synchronization concept in the Windows NT family of operating systems that allows users with a computer joined to a Windows domain to log on to any computer on the same domain and access their documents and have a consistent desktop experience, such as applications remembering toolbar positions and preferences, or the desktop appearance staying the same, while keeping all related files stored locally, to not continuously depend on a fast and reliable network connection to a file server.
Or you could do a Google search...
