Paint Shop Pro :: Custom Fonts Just Stopped Working All Together
Dec 13, 2012
Just today, while making graphics and such, my custom fonts just stopped working all together. Every single one that I have installed just shows up as nothing and is un-selectable when using it. The one in particular that i was using is Bebas Neue. Although all installed fonts are not working either.This happened out of the blue and I don't remember hitting anything or changing anything. Just typing with the font and it refused to show.
1. Reset All Preferences
2. Shift Key Trick on Load Up
3. Restarting the Computer
4. Reinstalling PSP X2
5. Using the font in other programs - Which they WORK (Word, GIMP, Adobe Illustrator, etc.)
6. Uninstalling/Reinstalling the Font itself.
repeat error each and every time I use any adjustment on graphics, photos or anything I am working on with PSP X3. Am including a screen shot, edited down to the forum specifics, and I had to edit the screen capture with PSP X2 since to reload PSP X3 will now require my restarting my computer.
I have used Paint Shop Pro since it's very first incarnation as a tiny program courtesy of the folks with Jasc, so this is not my first time using the product, just the absolute worst experience doing so.
No matter what the image, file type, or set-up, when I try to make adjustments (even if I make sure to stop and make double sure they are finished processing), eventually the program locks up and I get the error shown and stated.
Getting the error message "Corel PaintShop Pro X4 has stopped working". So far no workaround discovered, still does not work.
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium, fully current with updates. Memory: 8GM RAM 1 TB HD in each C; and E: CPU: AMD Phenom 3GHz processor GPU: ATI Radeon Graphic 3100

1. Installed, that error message 2. Patch, that error message 3. Removed, rebooted, e-installed, that error 4. Rebooted, reinstalled in XP, Works in XP! (I need it in Windows 7) 5. Removed ESET (needs to be relicensed anyways, this is priority right now) 6. Spybot shut down 7. Everything else works 8. Have been with PSP since JASC owned it as 4.0 (?) back in the mid 90s. 9. Frustrated with no answers, no solutions.
No AV, Spyware checkers, Malware checkers running. I took ownership of, have all permissions to and "Run as Administrator" Corel PaintShop Pro.exe

I have been using PSP x3 for awhile with no issues, but about a month ago, it simply stopped working. I open the program via shortcut, and the logo blinks onscreen, but the program never opens. No explanation, no trace.
I have attempted to uninstall and re-install, but each attempt to uninstall completely freezes the PC dead and I end up having to physically turn the PC off. I'm detecting no infection on the PC.
I had some font issues with Microsoft Excel on my mac earlier today and had messed around with the fonts, basically moving them from one folder to another, deleting duplicates etc.
I must admit at this point that I'm no Mac expert and I do like to do things the trial-and-error way. and I may have done something that I shouldn't have as my AI CC won't launch now.
I can't undo what I've done as I can't remember what I did, and Time Machine isn't useful.
I can't reinstall the CC as I don't have the installer and now Adobe won't let me download it again as apparently my OS is supposedly out of date, even though it still meets the minimum requirement (OSX10.6.8) stated.
I'm having strange things go on with Paint Shop Pro. One, it stopped automatically recognizing the camera when I plug it in to upload new photos. Now I have to tell it to open the camera, and, even if I have 100 old photos and 25 new ones, it uploads all of them again! Second, the file names have changed for the photos. They've always been the date "20132713_*.jpg". Now it opens them as "001.jpg, or 002.jpg, etc. How can I get it to go back to opening with the date as the file name.....and recognizing the camera and automatically open new photos in the camera?
I'm new here but for from new to PSP. I've used PSP8 for years and now are using PSP X1. I got PSP 4 but I'm not a fan at all. Anyway I've got a new PC running Win7 64 bit pro. The thing is PSP has decided it want use Adobe open style fonts. The True Type are fine. The open style do show in the fonts list and when used they do create a new vector layer and show the writing in the layers column. The thing is they don't show on the image. They used to work fine before but not now.
Is there any way to group, organize or categorize fonts I have installed in PSP so that I can have only my new fonts in one place? I am having to pick through all my fonts in order to test them all out.
I have been using PSP X4 for over a year with OpenType fonts. Suddenly this morning, all OTF have quit working in PSP, but TrueType fonts work just fine. I can choose an OTF from the font name window and see the first 6 character preview. However, when I type, there is nothing visible with the OTF. The cursor moves, but nothing shows. After I have typed with the invisible OTF, the text box exists in the appropriate size for what I have typed, but you can't see anything -- completely invisible. I can highlight my invisible OTF typing and change it to TrueType, and the text is there. Likewise, I can type in a TTF, highlight my typing and change it to an OTF and the text becomes invisible.
So PSP is recognizing the text, it just won't display it in OTF.
I can open previously-created files that used OTF in the text, and the OTF text is not visible, either.
I've never had any problem with OpenType fonts in PSP before -- they've always worked just like the TrueType for me.
The OTFs work fine in all other programs on my computer -- only problem with OTF is in PSP.
I got a message to install service pack 1 this morning. Since then every time I load PSP the workspace is the default workspace and all of the tools I had added to the toolbars are missing. If I load my custom workspace from the load menu, it makes no difference, it just refreshes the screen and nothing changes. Also every time I load the program it displays the Learning Center and Organizer tabs, even though I keep disabling them.
I tried resetting everything back to the defaults but it doesn't work. Should I do a new re-install or is there something I'm missing?
Using X4 on Windows 7. I'm trying to create a series of custom edges to supplement those already supplied in X4. I've created the edge ok and exported it as a frame and it works ok. The problem is selecting it in the dropdown menu under Image/picture frames. Whereas the thumbnails of the supplied edges have grey shading to represent the transparent section of the edge, mine don't, they are just plain white and that makes it difficult to know what edge to select. What have I done wrong? I've opened a couple of the supplied edges and they look similar to mine ie no shading.
I'm currently going through a batch of digital photos I took of my nephew, some of which have serious red eye issues.
using the inbuilt red eye removal tool under the adjust drop down has proven quite useful, but I am limited in terms of iris colors. none of the default colors seem to be a good match for his own eye color and they are noticeably inaccurate in the final result. is there any way to either mix the default iris colors then save the new color, or add extra colors any other way?
I know you can custom size the selection tool by pixel position, but Is it possible to set the custom size of the selection tool to inches? For example I would like to have a custom size of 5 x 7 inches so I can place over an area and simple copy and then paste that 5 x 7 selection as a new image.
Yesterday I purchased Paint Shop Pro, downloaded it along with the extras -- KPT Collection, Magic Bullet, Win Zip, etc. -- all of which I was able to load/run, but the KPT Collection of effects/filters are not available. The filters are listed under plugins on the menu, but they are not highlighted and therefore can't be accessed.
Is there something I'm missing in trying to use the KPTs or something else that needs to be done to activate them? I did a search here on the forum, but didn't see anything that related to this problem.
I have used MV's Plugins for years. They worked fine in X4, started to not work on a layer in X5, but if I flattened the layer, no problem. In X6 none work, I get an error message. I have the latest versions as far as I am aware.
I then pointed the new Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 9 to the same folder (in this case Contrast Mask) to see if it works there. No problem. Ergo: what's happened to X6 to give these errors. MV'sPlugins_not_working-X6.jpg
a) I have postscript (.ps) files for my company's logo which are in process color (CMYK).
b) These files open fine in PSP, and the colors are displayed properly. However, I understand that the files were actually converted to sRGB space, that is, I can't actually make changes in CMYK space, only in sRGB.
c) I need to make some changes to the logo, so I figured I would make the changes, then save a TIF file, using the CMYK space. My printer requires a CMYK file only.
d) Therefore, I simply saved the file opened in b) as a TIF file with a CMYK color space.
d) When I do the Save As in PSP, the file looks exactly like it did when first opened in PSP. (Update - if I close the TIF file in PSP, then reopen it, it does look different - greenish tinge, but not as bad as other viewers) But when I look at the file in other programs (IrfanView, MS Publisher, etc) the image is overly green, for example, my olive green logo components are almost bright green, and almost everything else seems to have a slightly greenish tint.
e) By comparison, if I open the postscript file in Irfanview, it renders correctly.
I thought Irfanview would input CMYK files (and apparently it does for .ps files) but my colors are wrong. Is this a TIF output issue with PSP? Or do I need to find another viewer to properly see the TIF file.
I downloaded a trial version of PSP X4. When i export an image from ASP in ProPhoto RGB color profile, PSP insist to convert it to sRGB. I wonder what is the color profile that been used by PSP as the working space?
The selection tools, i.e. shape, freehand and magic wand, have suddenly stopped working. I do freehand, double click and nothing happens. The freehand selection actually disappears. I click magic wand and nothing happens.
I originally thought I would revert to IE 8, I thought it was because I had switched to IE 10. But I did find someone who blamed it on IE 8, so at this point IE is no longer my default browser.Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on my home computer with IE 10. often when I click on a video or a link on a web page, the attached jpeg comes up, the window turns black and I have to use Task Mgr to kill IE. So until I get to the bottom of this FF is my browser.Is it malware or a virus? MSE and Malwarebytes Pro up to date and frequent scans.
When I resize an image and save it as a jpg when I reopen the file and go to image info it did not resize it at all. This is a 2 second job and now 1 hour later, I cannot work out why in the world PSP X6 cannot perform a simple task.
I have been using PSP since jasc released version 4. I was a long time user of 7, 9 and then X2.
Beginning with X3 and now X4 the Auto-Preserve function does not work. I especially miss this feature when running batch process. This is my primary reason fro skipping over X3 waiting for X4.
The function works fine in x2, but it never did in the trials of X3 or now the trial of X4. The feature is enabled. I selected "Yes, do this every time" the first edit I preformed. Verified in preferences as well.
In earlier versions I was given the option of enabling the Auto Save feature, and choosing the time intervals between saves. I chose every 2 minutes. If it crashed or was shut down in a reboot, the images on which I was working were recovered with their layers intact. Nothing was lost. I do not have that option in Version X4.
I have an script running fine with my old PSP (X4, X5). But in X6 the result in not good.
I use the script to insert the date on upper right corner of my pitcures. This data is found in Exif of the picture.
I use an fucntion returning the date, but with X6 , the result it not correct.
The source code is --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
def FormatDate( InputExif, Format ): ''' Use the time.strftime method to format a date string in various ways. The input exif date is always formatted as yyyy:mm:dd hh:mm:ss, so the first step is to convert that to a time tuple. We do that by changing the one lone space to a colon, then using split to give us a tuple that coincidentally matches the one used by time. '''
