18.015 I have a problem with getting fonts recognized. I copied the entire contents of one PRODOS Volume (named "AA") to another hard drive with a different volume name for use on another GS. When I launch AWGS or any other GS word processor on the second GS, I am told to "insert disk AA" when a font is requested. Is this a Pointless problem? A Typeset problem? Should I reinstall the fonts or what?

         Reinstalling them should make them work but an easier thing to try first
is to go into the FONTS folder inside the SYSTEM folder and trash the 2 files
called TrueType.List and Font.Lists. When you restart your computer it will
search through your Fonts folder and rebuild these lists. This is the procedure
to use if you install fonts by dragging to the folder instead of using an
installer.

     If you are using Pointless, the problem is not a bug; it's a feature ;-)

     When you open the Pointless Control Panel and click on a font name, you'll
notice that pathname information (where the font is stored) is displayed. So,
you could always open the Pointless Control Open, click on a font, click the
Remove button, and then click the Add button in order to let Pointless know
where on your other system the fonts are located.
