QUESTION

When I open my plan in Chief Architect, I receive the following message:

"The following fonts are not available on this system. Missing fonts can lead to unpredictable text sizes."


ANSWER

Chief Architect uses the fonts in your Windows Fonts folder or in the /Library/Fonts/ folder on the Mac. This message appears when Chief Architect is unable to find a font that is being referenced in the plan. You can choose to replace the font with another font that you do have installed or, if you don't choose a different font, it will default to the Arial font type.

If you are working with another Chief Architect user we recommend installing the missing font so that there are no discrepancies between saved versions of plans.
