    missing fonts (Publisher 2002)

    I have loaded, removed and re-loaded Publisher 2002 trying to correct this problem. When I click on the down arrow to show fonts, I see the little double T on the left side and everything else is blank. There are no font names or examples showing. If I type the name of a font, it will change my text to that font, but I need to see the different font names and styles. Any suggestions?

    Try this link. http://www.mvps.org/publisher/xpsp1details.htm
    I use Publisher 2000, so I haven't run into this issue. But it looks like there could be a problem with Publisher 2002 and certain colour schemes. You might also want to check Tools/Options/General tab and make sure that you've checked Preview fonts in Font List.

    Good luck,

    Cam

    <font face="Comic Sans MS">Thanks for your suggestions, Cam. I tried that, but the problem still exists. Does anyone else have any suggestions?
    If I type in my text, highlight it and choose Format>Font, I can select a font name and see it in the Sample window. This just seems unnecessarily awkward.</font face=comic>

    Try this link to the Microsoft Knowledge Base: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;en-us;Q301221
    You probably will have to download the latest service pack.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    I used the "work-around" and it did indeed work! I can NEVER find what I need in the Knowledge Base and I am always impressed with someone who can.

    I cannot install the Service Pack because whenever I do, I can no longer access the Internet. I'm using Windows ME and Office XP. Fortunately, Windows ME allows me to use System Restore to get rid of the patch. I've tried installing it twice with the same results each time.

    I am so happy to be able to see my fonts again. I appreciate your help.
