None of the Affinity programmes are showing my Fonts in my Font folder

Recommended Posts

My fonts folder is on my C Drive and the Affinity products are all on a different drive is there a way to tell Affinity where my fonts are as none of them are showing in the choice of fonts I can use.

Maybe post the OS you're on,so someone can say what's what.
Next question is;are the fonts installed/activated or just sitting in a folder on your computer?

Are you using a Font Manager?

Exactly where are the fonts installed?

Maybe there are fonts of a type that affinity doesn't understand or cannot use and therefore doesn't show.
Maybe put up the fontnames here and someone can take a look as to why it doesn't show

I have no problems with fonts and all my affinity apps are on D:\(partition) from the beginning I used them.
Are you perhaps running from an external disc?

Other programmes like word are all on the same drive and they can read the Fonts it's just the Affinity programmes that don't.

I'm not going to list every one there is over 200 hundred.

The windows font manager does show you which fonts you need to make sure you are in Icon view then click the font Icon, and you can just open the fonts file to see what fonts you have its under C://Windows/Fonts

@edraconus Are you still having issues with fonts? Affinity apps reference the default font locations of the OS and load from there. Can you provide a screenshot of these particular fonts listed in the Windows font folder and then a screenshot of the font dropdown list in Affinity?
