    you have upset the beast lol.

    obviously there are a couple of fonts that chrome needs just like IE I suppose you need to make sure you have the basic fonts it likes. I did a search but got boared with all the BS website google pulls up to find what im looking for

    Thanks for looking visual800. I tried to add all the webfonts I could remember last night, but still no luck!

    The beast is indeed angry with me! Looks like a young priest and an old priest are my only hope now.

    Just confuses me, that fontnav goes a bit overboard with the font management. Why would it deactivate essential program and system fonts when they're left in their own little system directory?!
    :help:
