Font Update
Hi all, Hope you can help me.

I've recently updated one of the font's I use regularly. The font in question is Roboto. I deleted/uninstalled the old font and installed the new version.

However, GIMP continues to use the older version even though it's been deleted. Every other programme uses the new version.

Can someone help me out?

Thanks

RE: Font Update
Sounds like you are using Windows and the font is installed in the Windows font system. Not a good place for a poor application (Gimp) that has been ported from linux. Wink

First check that the old font is not in the Gimp profile fonts folder, don't suppose it is.

Then you could try deleting the contents of the fonts cache

C:\Users\your-name\AppData\Local\fontconfig\cache

You will have to type this into Explorer to get there as: http://i.imgur.com/S4tH8t8.jpg


Delete the contents. There might be more than two files on your installation.

Start Gimp up and it is as a new install. You get searching for..fonts(this may take a while) understatement of the century. It sounds like you are a fonts collector, so just leave Gimp alone and go away while it works.

I know you say that other applications can see the font but consider placing fonts that are only used by Gimp into the Gimp profile. Even one step further, use a resources manager to move fonts in and out as required.
