I just replaced my computer and loaded my Signlab 9.1 software onto it and did the update to the latest revision. to make it compatible with Windows 10. I loaded the fonts with the "install fonts" command as usual. All of the font names appear in the drop down menu but when I try to use one a dialog box appears that says "unable to load (font)". The only way it will work is if I have the disc in the cd drive. Anyone have a solution for this?
Also, is there any way to extract fonts I have installed on my old machine so they can be installed on the new one?

If you have an Installer DVD, there is a folder named Fonts, copy that folder to the CADlink folder on your hard disk {C:\CADlink}, once this is copied run the install fonts routine from File > Install > Fonts, use the browse option in the top right of the dialog and make sure you are looking at the CADlink folder.

Once complete, remove the dvd then try accessing fonts again.

Fonts on the old PC could be windows OTF or TTF fonts and would be saved in the windows\fonts folder, these can be copied and installed on the new PC, see the video here for more information, or they could be adobe type 1 fonts these will have the file extension of PFB, again these can be copied from the old system to the new and will need installing in Signlab after they have been copied.
