Hi

 

I am working on a laptop with Windows 10 on it.

 

Illustrator version 28.0.0 overwrites existing file AdobeFnt_OSFonts.lst in:

  1. C:\Users\xxXXXXX\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 28 Settings\en_US\x64
  2. C:\Users\xxXXXXX\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\AIRobin 28.0.0 Settings\en_US\x64

xxXXXXX is username

 

Each time when Illustrator start up these files are overwritten 😞

I tried to change the rights of these files but nothing helps.

 

How can i stop this so i can make my own changes to these files, and keep them.

Or wil there be en update of illustrator so that these files will not be updated anymore

and also in the future!!

 

br Michael

Hello @m.j.vermeulen,

 

Thank you for sharing your issue & reaching out. To better understand the situation, could you clarify a few things?

 

  1. Was this file modification working as expected in a previous version of Illustrator?
  2. What specific changes or customizations are you trying to make to the "AdobeFnt_OSFonts.lst" file?
  3. Is there a particular reason you need to modify this file, as it's related to app font settings?

 

Your additional information will help me assist you more effectively.

 

Best,

Anshul

Hi Anshul,

 

sorry for the late response.

 

1. That is a long time ago, multiple years 😞

2. i did the next:

  • Change FontName: ArialMT to Arial
  • Change FontName: ArialMT-Black to Arial-Black

3. With ArialMT as FontName in the SVG the SVG will not show Aial because it is not a webfont

 

Hope this will help

 

Br Michael
