Subject:RE: Tekton font problem -- clarification From:"Kane, Beth" <Beth -dot- Kane -at- ncslearn -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Thu, 20 Dec 2001 14:49:54 -0600
Someone indicated that I need to clarify something -- it isn't just that I
receive an annoying message. I can no longer use the template, because
Tekton really is not functioning on my machine. I guess I will try to call
Adobe for help.
Since wiping my machine and installing the Windows 2000 OS (per orders from
my company), I've had a lot of font problems. I eventually managed to fix
all of them but one. FrameMaker 6.0 still gives me this message when I open
certain crucial docs: "The 'TektoMM_503 BD 850 EX' Font is not available."
I've asked people in the dept. that produced these docs to give me a copy of
everything that resides in their own Fonts folders; I've restored my entire
backed-up Fonts folder; I've worked with Adobe Type Manager to properly
bring in all fonts; I've also imported all fonts the way Win 2000 wants it
done; and I've scoured the Web, searching for help. But this problem
persists. I have a valid license to the font. Does anyone have any advice
for me? I think it's Win 2000's fault, or else fonts and/or their associated
files get corrupted when transferred via network.
Thanks very much,
