Weird problem with fonts in Adobe Photoshop

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by glitto, Jul 8, 2008.

    Hi all,

    I am facing a weird problem with my Photoshop CS2.

    I have many fonts installed in my computer and they all appear in Photoshop.. but when I have used them in a file and open that file next time... Photoshop shows an EXCLAIMATION mark on many fonts (Exclaimation mark is usually shown on those fonts which are not installed in my computer).

    When I click on that text layer it gives a message that

    Editing or redering the text layer <font name> will cause its layout to change

    continue?


    However when I click on YES to continue the font doesn't change because it is already installed.

    It happens everytime I open a file.

    Are the PSD files from earlier (pre CS2) versions? That might be the culprit.

    Nope, the files are not from the old version.

    I have Photoshop CS2 9.0.2 version and in this version whenever I created a new file and open it photoshop shows exclamation mark on text layers.

    May be I should re-install Photoshop, what you think, will it solve the problem?

    If the exclamation mark signs are grey, I wouldn't worry about them. If you want to edit a text layer, just update it. If this message annoys you, you can turn it off.

    Exactly.. the exclamation mark is grey... and I have already turned off the update message.

    But the point is that "Why Photoshop is not recognising the installed fonts?"

    If the icon is grey, the fonts are apparently recognized, because if they were not, the sign would be yellow and you'd get a "missing fonts" error message.
    The text layers only have to be updated, and if as you say, the file has been made on the same system and program version - updating should not alter the look of the text.
    You can update all the text layers, and once the file is saved, the grey icons should not re-appear.

    Yes, Photoshop used to ask for the "Text Layers Update" every time I opened a file... I was getting annoyed of this msg so I turned the msg alert OFF.

    But after that it is not updating the text and showing grey exclamation mark... even I save the file and open again it again shows grey exclamation :(

    I think I should have re-installed the Photoshop and see what happens.

    No need to reinstall it, it's not going to change this. Also it is NOT a problem.
    Just select from the menu: Layer / Type / Update all text layers. THEN save and it won't show again.

    I get that quite a lot. I think its because photoshop has to re-read the font directory so will display an error until it reads it again.
