Today when I went to edit a customers text I got a runtime error, abnormal program termination
Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Program: c:\program files\Corel\Corel DRAW Graphics Suite 13\Programs\CorelDRW.exe
abnormal program termination
I have tried everything, uninstalled, reinstalled, uninstalled again and ran Registry Crawler to remove ALL Corel registry entries, reinstalled and still get the same thing.
It only seems to do it when I go to the font list, can someone help me with this?
You may have a confusion of font(s). What I mean is, you have two different font files with the same name, both being active. Corel can not handle this, very well, when it is trying to apply a messed up font pair to the document.
If you open Font Navigator and then from its menu, select File->Settings->Duplicate Fonts, and resolve any duplication that you may have. (This assumes that FontNav has scanned all the fonts in your system, into its database.)
Thanks Hugh, no duplicate fonts, everything seems to be ok... any other ideas? Is there possibly a corrupt font or a virus within the font directory?
There is a possibility that one (or more) of the fonts in the font list (or, active fonts) in your system is corrupt.
One way to find out, is to deactivate all but the Windows system fonts and then see if you have a crash. If so, you have a corrupt Windows supplied font. If not, then you could start restoring the non-Windows fonts, that you had before, until you find one that will cause the abnormal termination.
Hugh Johnson said:There is a possibility that one (or more) of the fonts in the font list (or, active fonts) in your system is corrupt.
does Font Navigator scan for problem fonts and do repair? the management software usually does. i know that in the past the corrupt font was the one i last selected while scrolling down the font drop down menu. in my case it was Microgramma.
FontNav does not detect corrupt fonts.
FontNav can not repair corrupt fonts. The simplest way to repair a corrupt font is to delete it and reload it onto your disk, again.
Since you know what font name the corruption seems to be, you could deactivate that font with FontNav and then copy that font onto a thumbdrive, floppy or some other removable media. Delete that font from your system, after you have copied it off, and then test with Corel, to see if that font is the problem. (When Corel pops up a Panrose font substitution, allow it to substitue any other font for the missing font, but do so only temporarily.)
If you discover that that font is corrupted, I suggest you disregard the saved off copy and go to the source of where that font came from and reload it onto your system.
If that is not the corrupted font, restore the font from the copied media and then do the elimination for the next font(s) in the list. You will eventually find the corrupted font.
Of course, the fastest way would be eliminate all but the Windows system fonts and then reload all the fonts from their original source. And that would be only if you have all the non-Windows fonts in one handy place
