VL 5.8 and font issues
« on: September 27, 2007, 11:52:14 am »

Setup PC using for folks....they need larger fonts on desktop . Increased them thru settings>user interface...seems OK.

But then several pages in Firefox displayed image and fonts but when printing onlt the image came thru. Tried to set in firefox preferences but no go. Also, in ABIWORD, we open a new document and the cursor is just a dot with no characters when typing. this was with Times new Roman. tried to open  MS .doc but no luck.

I have opened MS docs before on another VL box.

If I change to different fonts in ABI I get the cursor and fonts back.

Did the user interface setting change the fonts globally and if so how do I get back to defaults and then ONLY set the desktop icons fonts to be larger.

Thanks for any help
