Stopping Approach from using Marlett as the default font
Last updated: 21 Jun 2003
Marlett font may be useful for something but its dammed annoying as a default font, so why does Approach sometimes insist that it is the only font for me?!
Well, there are a number of possible causes for this problem:
- your default printer is set to "Generic/Text"
- your default printer is set to a fax, .pdf or some other software driver rather than to an actual printer
- you have a font named "Monotype Sorts" installed on your computer. Remove it!!
- you have a field or default font set to a font or style that is not installed on your computer. This is a particular pain if you accidentally uninstall a font which you have used throughout your .apr's. I speak from personal experience on this one. Months later I was still opening not-often-used .apr's only to find everything was now written in Marlett which is not a language I can readily read!
