    Problems with fonts from Mac to Win



      Problems with fonts from Mac to Win


      I have a problem with an old database:

      The database was originally running under an old Mac OS 9. Now I converted the DB and try to use it on my Win XP PC. To convert and open it was not a problem, but all Fields have now a wrong font. On the Mac the Font Geneva was used and I installed it as well on the PC, but now the fields has the Font: <unknown>

      Does anyone has an Idea how to solve this Problem withouth changing the font of every field?


      Thank you!

          Thank you for your post.


          Somehow, the font ID has been lost.  Have you installed any new application that modified the existing fonts?


          Reinstall your system fonts; especially Geneva.  If the field still displays <unknown>, then you will need to select the fields (individually or as a group) and change the font to Geneva.
