FH 11.0.2 Missing Fonts error related to "MS Shell Dlg 2"

Postby HNCornell » Sun Jul 22, 2012 12:27 pm

I'm using Freehand 11.0.2 under Windows7 x64 - although I've frequently experienced this issue under Windows XP & Vista as well.

When selecting a symbolic character such as a Checkmark from the Wingdings font set and then attempting to paste it into FH, a lengthy delay occurs (~30-60 seconds) before a "Missing Fonts" dialog appears saying "These fonts are not installed. Arial will be used for displaying and printing" The missing font is shown as "MS Shell Dlg 2" and a choices are provided to: Replace, Select all, Cancel or OK.

By simple selecting "OK", the desired character & font is pasted as expected - but what causes the delay and how can I fix it? Any insight would be most welcome.
