Hello everyone. I keep getting this pop up "Selected font failed during last operation. If problem persists, please disable the font." On all fonts Adobe and personal fonts. Not stock fonts.

Here are some things I have tried. 

  • Clearing Photoshop Cache
  • Clearing Photoshop CTFont Cache 
  • Uninstalled and re-install all Adobe apps
  • Added my personal fonts to Adobe cloud
  • Uninstalled and re-install all fonts (Through Adobe and manually)

Only in Photoshop. Illustrator still lets me use all the fonts. InDesign does not load the font either instead I get an "OpenType is not available for this font" with red highlight. Is there any way i can reset all font settings or files on a Mac if that's even a thing? I think I have PS 21.1.1 and I am using Mac. 

Thanks!!!

I ended up installing the second to latest update and now it works. I'll just wait for the next update.

 

Also I noticed that most answers included erasing the CTFont Cache but didnt offer a solution in Mac most recent update. This is how I did it although it did not resolve my issue. 

 

CT FONT CACHE PS 2020 MAC

Finder > Go tab > +Option > Library (look up "how to open hidden Libary folder" for help in Finder) > Application Suport > Adobe > Adobe Photoshop 2020 > CT Font Cache!!

 

Hope this helps and if ayone has any alternitive sollutions help would be greatly apreceated, I will sitll use outdated version for now.

This did not work for me.

 

I'm using PS CC 22.0.0 release, on a Windows 10 computer, version 10.0.18363. This computer was updated recently and I think this is why I'm not able to use the type tool in Photoshop now - I get the "selected font failed during the last operation" message.

Okay, I have found the issue...

 

Adobe writes files and preferences for the Apps into the C:/Programs/Adobe folder... Windows decides to lock down/limit access to these folders for security I am assuming (or your network administrator may be setting a policy). You need to enable full read/write access to this top level Adobe folder (so it will flow through all sub folders in that folder) and give Full Allow rights for the these security groups: SYSTEM, Users, and most importantly CREATOR OWNER.

 

  1. Close Photoshop and Creative Cloud App
  2. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Adobe
  3. Right-click the Adobe folder and select 'Preferences'
  4. Click 'Security' tab
  5. Click SYSTEM 
  6. Click 'Full Control' (top option)
  7. Repeat for SYSTEM, Users, Administrator groups
  8. Click OK to apply the changes.
  9. Open Photoshop and the Type iBeam reappeared without the error diaglogue box

 

If you cannot access these security groups to make changes, you will meed to contact your Adminstrator to make these changes for you. 

 

Good luck and hope this works for you as well.
