fonts

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by wn van deursen, Oct 6, 2002.

  1. I use XP mainly for writing articles columns funnmystories & cartoonesque gags, so I guess my processors lead a relatively easy if not boring life. Yet I was warned that stacking more than 800 fonts into Windows may cause my computer go china syndrom or something like that. I hastily trimmed back to 700 and stored 500 fonts onto cdrom. To obtain an 'archive' font I now have to park the whole lot in a temp map, copy the desired font to the Windows fontmap, and delete again after use. Is there an easier way?

    OK, I just got a quick question.

    Where did you find all of your fonts??

    Well, there were all those nice sites beckoning me to come in and take my pick. Hope I didn't do something that makes uncle Bill mad?

    your friend has a point - all your fonts are loaded into memory & can effect performance if you have to many

    to avoid a possible crash
    install more RAM if possible
    & increase the size of your pagefile
    to min 3 x RAM / max 5 x RAM

    :cool:
     
  6. Carried out your PageFile instructions, it works, see my XP smiling from ear to ear now
