Title: Truetype font (TTF) installed in Windows 10 is rendered incorrectly
Created: 0000-00-00Last modified: 0000-00-00

Starting with Windows 10 build 1809, it is now possible to install fonts in the user directory (%userprofile%/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Fonts) without the requirement of having administration privileges. These fonts are currently not detected by Carslon + IntelliCAD.

To fix the font installation you need Administrator privileges. Please do the following:
1. Delete the font from %WINDIR%/Fonts folder (usually C:/Windows/Fonts)
2. Delete the font from %userprofile%/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Fonts (usually C:/Users/USERNAME/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Fonts)
3. Right-click the TTF font file and choose "Install For All Users" (not just "Install")
4. Save the attached BAT file to the desktop
5. Unblock it
6. Right click on the BAT file, and click/tap on Run as administrator
