Does your new machine run Win XP SP3? Is the font Arial Black? If so, take a look here: <>

Hope this helps,

P.S., I also get one missing font message when I open the book file! WTF would there be a missing font in the book file?

Subject: Missing Fonts in Frame

I'm getting the familiar missing font message upon opening a file (actually any of the many files in my book). This just started happening yesterday, as I got a new machine; it was not happening on the old machine.

I hunted down the fonts that were reported missing, finding them mainly in table formats. I was able to sufficiently redesign the table formats in one file so that I can open it up without getting the message. Then I imported the fixed table formats into another file. Didn't work. I have scoured the hell out of that second file, and cannot find any of the missing fonts in table defs, master or reference pages, paragraph or character format definitions, or anywhere. I still get the missing fonts message.

And here's the kicker: I save the file as mif, and open up the mif source--no such fonts. There are no references to any of the missing fonts in the mif file! But when I save that mif back as fm, guess what: still get the missing fonts message!

Has anyone run into this problem? Can't anyone ease my pain.
