Archicad suddenly changes working font

Tazo
Participant

I've been working in Archicad for 7 years and I've never had such case. Archicad changed font style of workspace. I have no idea how it happened and how to return it back.

Solution

I found these keys in the registry.

Of course this is in Windows OS.

If you alter anything here, do so at your own risk.

 

Maybe you have deleted the Segoe UI font from you system and it is just substituting something else?

I'm not sure if this isn't an operating system setting. I'm not aware that you can change that font in Archicad. To me on WIN10 it looks like it is just using Segoe for everything (the default WIN10 font),

 

You would have to change a registry setting to even touch this font setting.

Now I remember, I just installed one font on computer. And that font became the system font for Archicad. How can I change it back?

Yes, that is not an Archicad font setting.

It is a system font.

Maybe there is a Registry key (plist on Mac?) that controls this.

But I am not sure.

 

I don't know of any settings in Archicad that can change this.

 

Are other programs affected?

I haven't deleted Segoe font, yes I checked for that. I found a solution by the way. but it is strange. Archicad has used the recent font I installed for Microsoft Word use. and then I uninstalled it and the Archicad working font has returned back to normal.

But wow. This helped me a lot. Thank you.

Other programs are not affected. Now I remember, I just installed one font on computer. And that font became the system font for Archicad. How can I change it back?

Just something I found on a quick google search.

Thanks for replying to each of us (just the one reply would be enough though).

 

The problem is, installing a new font should not affect the default system font in Archicad.

It should just become a new font that you can use for text in Archicad.

 

I am not sure of a permanent solution.

What will happen if you need to install that font again or install another font?

Maybe it is that particular font?

Maybe it is the way you install the font (on Windows I just copy the font file to the WINDOWS > FONTS folder).

 

I guess the only way to find out is to install another font.

At least you know if you delete it, all goes back to normal.
