Fonts - candara
I use the Windows font Candara in GIMP on a regular basis. Suddenly, in the last
- previously created text boxes look fine
- until I enter them and change anything
- then the font becomes thinner - but still Candara.
In the font list I now have Candara (the new thin one) and Candara #1 (which
doesn't really look like Candara). Candara (new look) in bold is thicker than old Candara.
Candar still shows up fine (only one version, and looks normal) in other
applications (Word, PowerPoint).
I've tried uninstalling Candara and Candara Light (part of the same font
family), in case the latter is what's screwing GIMP up. I've reset GIMP's font
list from the dockable Fonts toolbox. I've added all the Windows font folders to
GIMPs font folder list. I've deleted and reinstalled GIMP completely (but may
not have found all its settings, if they're not deleted automatically).
This is driving me crazy. Candara works fine everywhere except GIMP, but I can't
get it to work there.
It feels like there's something wrong with GIMP's font info - maybe after a
Windows update added a Candara Light? - but my efforts haven't fixed it.
