i have just updated my version of gimp to the 2.8.10 on my pc running xp. now
when i go to add text some fonts (TrueType Font file) work fine. but other fonts
(standard Font file) just dose not work and only appears as the sans font . i
have many fonts that i use that now longer work and any help to rectify this
would be very much appreciated :) .

Hi, there is no such thing as standard font file. Could you be more
specific please? Are those fonts OpenType fonts (.otf)? Could you point us
to any particular font? Thanks :)

You can tell us file extension of that font or the font's name, can you? :)

hi thanks for your quick reply's. i have sorted it now. was my fault. when i
updated, it set the font directory back to default. an i have my fonts in a
separate location. quick change of directory and they all work properly again.

Unfortunately the default setup of Windows Explorer, as of Windows XP I 
think, is to hide file extensions. Many people probably don't even 
realise file extensions exist, let alone how to show them (or the 
security implications of not knowing whether they're about to open a 
.jpg or .exe file!)


For the OP and anyone else who doesn't know: from Windows Explorer open 
Tools menu (Alt+T for Windows Vista and 7, which also hide the menus by 
default!)  Folder Options  View  deselect Hide extensions for known 
file types and click OK. The extension is then the part after the last 
. in the file name.


More unfortunately, in this case, that still doesn't seem to help since 
extensions are still hidden in the special Fonts folder... but File  
Properties  General does shows the extension in brackets after the file 
type - e.g. Font File (.fon) or TrueType Font File (.ttf) - or at 
least it does on the Windows Vista system I'm on at the moment...


Looks like the original problem is solved anyway.
