    Lost Fonts in Word Mail (Outlook 2003)

    G'day All

    Somehow I've managed to lose the ability to specify fonts in Outlook - using Word Mail. My signature comes through but the text is stuck in Arial. When I drop the font box down from the toolbar - the only fonts I get are Device Font 10cpi ... 12cpi ... 17cpi and nothing else.

    When I Go Tools Options General E-Mail and try to set a default font for Sending/Replying - same problem.

    Any ideas as to what I've done ?

    Thanks, Regards Ken.

    ... actually - I ran Word and checked - I've lost the ability to use fonts in Word as well. I changed to Outlook's editor and it works fine - all my fonts are there.

    What is your "Default Printer"?

    If the default printer does NOT support True Type fonts then you will not have any selection.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    This is due to printer drivers. Word only lists fonts if there is a printer driver installed that supports printing true-type fonts. Try the following:

    Check to make sure Word has a printer selected.
    Your printer drivers may have become corrupted so you may need to re-install the printer drivers.
    If you have a "generic/text only" driver listed, then if this is the selected printer it will also not list your fonts.

    Brilliant - thanks Tony. It was set to Text Printer somehow. It would have taken me ages to find that. Thanks.
