[Solved] Can't see text on screens after font install

Postby Pirenko » Thu Apr 30, 2020 11:16 am

Hi,
I'm having trouble with editing documents and seeing options.
Here are some screenshots:
a) Launch screen https://nimb.ws/jhWfeb
b) Save document popup https://nimb.ws/Xph7HD (empty buttons and formatting options look weird)
c) OpenOffice settings https://nimb.ws/zW57Hq

I already re-installed, but I still have the same issue.
Any ideas why and how to fix it?
Thanks,
Pirenko

On a Mac, try Preferences. You may have to burrow down a little, but you will find the requisite settings.

 Edit: I think this is to do with font-type settings: Try the Mac tutorial at
[Tutorial] Mac FAQ

I am fairly sure it covers the blank menu entries.

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

A search finds No text on Welcome Splash, Hover Text cannot be read. Further reinstalls are probably a waste of your time. Use tutorial Q02/A02 if the Guest User does not experience the problem. If the solutions (you should try them all) in the linked topic do not help, you can do more searching in the forum. If you find a solution, it would be wonderful to know what it was, so that others with the same problem can be helped. I cannot reproduce the problem.

This is a copy of the images in the first post. Experience has shown that links like those are unreliable in the long term.

If this solved your problem please go to your first post use the Edit button and add [Solved] to the start of the title. You can select the green checkmark icon at the same time.

Hi,
This issue was solved by removing the DIN font family that I installed recently.
Thanks!
