Clickart Fonts v5 -- Preview Problem - 6/17/2011 12:08:54 PM

When I attempt to view a preview of what a font looks like in Clickart Fonts v5, all of the fonts look similar to the Arial font in the preview panel.

In order to determine what the fonts look like to know if I want to install them or not, I need to be able to preview them. Any idea why it's not previewing the fonts with how they actually look, and how I can fix that problem?

Thanks

Hi BigJohnny59,

As you are probably already aware, the process for previewing the fonts in Clickart Fonts v5 involves clicking on the font name in the list on the left side of the window then viewing the preview on the right side of the window. It is, though, very important to keep in mind that many of the fonts which are included in Clickart Fonts v5 will look very similar.

As a test, click on the Amaze font in the list on the left side of the window. If the preview for the Amaze font does not display a font which appears to be handwritten with considerable flourish, that would indicate that you are experiencing a display issue. And, the recommended solution for display issues is to click on the link below

then follow the directions in that FAQ for updating your video card driver.

I am not at home right now, but I looked at multible fonts last night -- including "5 Year Old", which clearly should look like a little kid wrote it by hand (as shown in the sample on the web page). But it looks like a very clean Arial-type font. I looked at at least 20 different fonts from within the program, and they all looked exactly the same in the preview screens.

I'll try the video card option, though I doubt it is the problem. It is a fairly new, high memory card. I have had no problem viewing fonts with it directly in Windows. It's only the Clickart Fonts v5 program that appears to be the problem.

Thanks

Hi BigJohnny59,

The image at the bottom of this message displays what I see when I preview the "5 Year Old" font in Clickart Fonts v5.

If that is not what you saw, that would definitely indicate that the problem is being caused by either the video card driver or the actual video card itself. However, since the Minimum System Requirements for Clickart Fonts v5 list only an '800x600, 16-bit High Color display adapter (video card with 32 MB of video RAM for Vista)', your video card should be compatible with Clickart Fonts v5. So, that would indicate that your video card driver is very likely the culprit.

The most important point to keep in mind about video card drivers is that the video card driver that is installed must be specifically designed for both your Operating System and the version of your Operating System - either 32-bit or 64-bit. And, the second most important point to keep in mind about video card drivers is that the most current driver is not always included on the computer in which the video card is installed. So, the video card driver might be outdated. And, it is always possible that the video card driver is corrupted.

So, any time display issues occur with any video card, the recommended solution is to check the video card manufacturer's web site to download and install the correct and most current video card driver for both your Operating System and the version of your Operating System - either 32-bit or 64-bit..

If you continue to experience the problem after updating your video card, the only other logical explanation is that your installation of Clickart Fonts v5 is corrupt. And, the recommended solution for a corrupt installation is to click on the link below

then follow ALL of the directions in that FAQ.

Hi again BigJohnny59,

Where you said this:

"I have had no problem viewing fonts with it directly in Windows. It's only the Clickart Fonts v5 program that appears to be the problem."

If you were referring to the process which allows you to view fonts by going to C:\Windows\Fonts then double-clicking on the font file to bring up a window similar to the one which is displayed below, you will see that the font preview in the image below (which was taken from C:\Windows\Fonts) is not exactly the same as the font preview in the image I posted previously. And, what that means is that the process which is required to display a font preview in C:\Windows\Fonts is not the same process which is required to display a font preview in Clickart Fonts v5. So, since the two font previews were created with different display processes, it is not possible to compare the two previews.
