Fonts are only shown in mm in 1.8

Recommended Posts

Fonts in Designer will only display for me as mm in the tool bar and character panel. I have show text as points selected, I've restarted, tried many documents, but it still only shows in mm. Opening the same documents in Publisher shows points as intended.

Hi Brian,

I believe this is caused by the issue mentioned from Matt below, which has caused your preferences options to change. Please go to the link below and download the DMG and follow the instructions (you'll need to ensure your App has not been renamed and is in the root of Applications). This will fix the default preferences options and should revert your font size to be in point (along with other fixes).

I got things to work by toggling the Show Text in Points off and on again (Thanks to Roy from The IT Crowd) in the Preferences.

That will fix it, but that does NOT correct the inherent fault that caused the issue, where as the fix from Matt will.
