Overpass font breaking in PDF export.

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

I have encountered a strange bug when working with PDF exports. To be more precise Overpass as a font. 
It gets exported as bunch of symbols instead of letters. 

Tested. Not a bug in my file, nor software (friend tested it as well) 

Link to download Overpass:  https://overpassfont.org

What it was supposed to look like:

What I got in the PDF:

My export settings:

Try to remove it and install the one I've attached previously. 

I know why it worked. Try using Regular or Light. Those break. the bold ones don't.

It may be that the font cache is corrupted. It may be the fonts got corrupted.

Uninstall all your Overpass fonts. Reboot the computer as this sometimes rebuilds the font cache. Load the fonts from the attached ZIP file even if that is the same ZIP.

Did that like 3 times already. Downloaded a new one. Tried it all... maybe it has to do something with my system language being set to Slovak?

Hi @Stolgeth,

I cannot replicate this. 

If you attach your project tile with the font you have used, I can have a look for you. 

Thanks,

Gabe.

This is what I got using the files you provided and default PDF for export setting in export persona.

Never found another font that would break. I don't know what's up because my friend tried it as well. And it broke the same way. With my files and with his as well. 

Maybe it will resolve itself with 1.7 

As for this project I had to use a different font.

That's weird. Is the other device running Slovakian Windows? Can you please attach a list with all the programs running the Task manager > Details?

The other device has Slovak as well but works flawlessly. No problems there. 

 

I have the same stuff on both devices. But the differences are just Omen center and HP drivers. I will provide screenshots eventually.
