Font issue
« on: May 16, 2013, 01:04:48 AM »
Is there any reason why Comic Sans MS should suddenly be showing up on my screen as uber tiny? Everything else is okay except that one particular font.

That looks more like Times New Roman than Comic Sans, but it looks like someone made that font really small in their BBcoding. Other than that, you can try hitting ctrl+0 and see if that properly resizes it. Also try clearing cookies/cache and restarting browser.

I would have thought that too, but I quoted the post text and it said Comic Sans MS. I also tried making a post of my own using the same font with the drop down menu and it previewed the same as was shown.

I cleaned my E cookies after this started.

SEE?

Ctrl 0 made everything even smaller. I also thought it looked like Times New Roman and was wondering if there is a glitch in the drop down window. :-\

What it looks like to me is that you are getting the automatic windows font substitution you would get if you didn't have Comic Sans MS installed on your system.  So perhaps the type file itself has become corrupted.  Why not try uninstalling Comic Sans MS and installing a new copy?

That was it, Geraint. After checking the Comic Sans was completely missing from my font file. Much thanks.

* Trieste didn't get a chance to get back over to this thread before now, just got home from work.  :-[

I'm glad you got it figured out!

Me too. It was driving me nuts. I haven't a clue how it disappeared from my fonts.

Do any graphic designers have access to your computer? :P

No, unless a game decided it shouldn't be there.

Cool, I'm glad it turned out to be something that simple to fix. :D  And you're quite welcome.
