Detecting Problems with Font Substitutions

FontExpert comes with a Detect Font Problems tool that allows you to detect and solve many problems with your fonts.

Choose Tools, Detect Font Problems from the main menu. Then click the Font Substitutions button.

FontExpert looks at registered font substitutions and turns on colored light bulbs near every font substitution:

 

Green

No problems

 

Yellow

Warning

 

Orange

Serious warning

 

Red

Problem found

You can ignore the items that have green light bulbs.

Select an item that has a yellow, orange or red bulb. Notice that FontExpert comments on the problem and makes a recommendation on how to solve it. Usually FontExpert recommends the button that you can click to solve the problem. Sometimes FontExpert gives you two or more possible ways of solving the problem. In this case, you have to make a choice.

Note that changes are not saved until you click the OK button.

You can cancel all changes you made by clicking the Cancel button.

Important Note

It is required to restart Windows to allow a new or changed font substitution to take effect.
