    Maybe your cock is too big.

    I mean, there's a limit, man.

    I dunno, did you move them after you installed them or rename the directory they were in while you were organizing? Have you tried copying them somepalce else and reinstalling them from there? :/

    LOL I went to command promt, went to my back up fonts directory add typed this

    copy *.* c:/Windows/fonts and chose to overwrite all

    and now some of the fonts look all messed up....and now I am sad =(

    *Edit yea I copied from an old folder as well on an old disc....I;m wondering if it's just a word issue or what....maybe I need to update the cache on my Windows? I got no Idea.

    Try rolling back your system a few days to see if that helps...

    Well I turn off rollback lol cause I hate it and as for going to the fonts folder it's the same thing, I have a total of 893 fonts and roughly 500 come with Windows so it's a lot of

    "You must remove the old version first" Click OK or Cancel

    So I would have to click OK 500 times...Stupid thing is that if you hold down enter it just clicks cancel.

    It seems that Office really did not like me doing what I did, the repair seemed to fix it (while wiping out my outlook GRRR) and its possibly the few fonts left just look like crap through the preview font on Word.

    Thanks for all the replies!

    Agree with what this guy said; install the fonts properly. I don't know if just pasting over the Fonts folder will work.
