Windows 10 Version 1809 Font Changes and Resolve Text+

PostThu Dec 20, 2018 12:28 am

I'll post this here, even though no one will read it. Maybe someone will stumble across it with a search.

In the new Windows 10 version 1809 update, Microsoft has made changes in the font area.

In the past, when you installed .ttf fonts. it required Admin privileges and installed the font for all users.

In 1809, you can install .ttf fonts for the local user without Admin privileges. That sounds nice, but if you do that, the font won't show up in the Resolve Text+ font list. It will be in the Text font list.

With 1809, if you install a font, when you right click on the .ttf file, you have a new menu called "Install For All Users". It requires Admin level privileges. And you have the old Install menu. If you want the font to be available in the Resolve Text+ font list, use the "Install For All Users" menu.

Thanks Dwaine
I upgraded one of our systems to 1809 recently, so this is very good to know.
Cheers
