Choice of font RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I click on TOOLS/INSERT FONTS In the SB pime editor the program immediately terminates.

    Probably I don't have any fonts installed in my smallbasic folder but I have no idea how to do that.

    I would appreciate any help on this matter.

  • Thanks for the additional info.

    I had a look at the source and can't see what could be the issue, given that the colors window works (mostly the same code as the font window) and that the right click finds the font ok.

    Since there is a workaround, I guess it probably isn't worth pursuing unless anyone else also sees the same issue.

  • Hi,

    No idea why this might be, thanks for reporting.  You shouldn't need to install any special fonts - I didn't.

    Are you running Windows 10?

    Does Tools|Insert Colors work?

    I assume it fails if you just start it up and do Tools/Insert Fonts?

    Is there any crash failure window diagnostics?

    What happens if you right click inside the editor and select Insert Font?

  • Hi, thanks for the reply!

    I'm running windows Vista home edition.

    Tools/Insert Colours works perfectly.

    Yes, program fails from start up if I do a Tools/Insert/Fonts and I get this list of problem details:

    Description:
      Stopped working

    Problem signature:
      Problem Event Name: CLR20r3
      Problem Signature 01: SB-Prime.exe
      Problem Signature 02: 1.1.6.0
      Problem Signature 03: 5d68318c
      Problem Signature 04: mscorlib
      Problem Signature 05: 4.6.81.0
      Problem Signature 06: 5584e42d
      Problem Signature 07: 5e1c
      Problem Signature 08: 4
      Problem Signature 09: PSZQOADHX1U5ZAHBHOHGHLDGIY4QIXHX
      OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3
      Locale ID: 1043

    Right clicking inside the editor and selecting a font works OK and I can continue with the program.

    If there is no other solution for the Tools/insert/font problem then I'll do it the other way.

    Many thank for your help.

  • Yes, I think you are right. At least I can change the font by means of right clicking, so I'll continue that way.

    Many thanks for your input. Have a good weekend.
