FE fails to preview .PFM files with long path-names [fixed]

Post by support » Sat Jun 11, 2005 4:34 am

Applied to: FontExpert 2004 version 6.0 (all releases) and all earlier versions.

Description: FontExpert fails to preview PostScript files (.pfm/.pfb) located in a folder having too long name. FontExpert reports that .PFM file is not loaded and may be damaged.

Workaround: The length of the path including file name (for example: "c:\My Fonts\My PostScript Fonts\.......\.......\My Font\myfont.pfm") must not exceed 128 symbols.

Comments: This problem is applied only to PostScript fonts and only to preview feature. (FontExpert can activate and display PostScript fonts in a folder having long name.)

This problem is fixed in version 7.0.

Did you try out Long Path Tool? I'm sure it'll solve your problem.
