i ve lost all my fonts in corel. I tried to install a new font and all the fonts i have disapeared.


Hi there,
Most probably the problem is caused by the font list options.
Go to Text -> Font List Options or Tools -> Options -> Workspace -> Text -> Fonts
Once you're there play around with these options. The solution most probable to work is disabling "Show document fonts only"

If I write a document on microsoft works word processor and send it to someone with microsoft word, will they be able to read it on microsoft word?


PECIFYING FILE COMPATIBILITY
As different versions of Word have been released over the years, there
are noticeable differences in the way text layout and formatting
appear. Sometimes it’s necessary to make changes to an existing
document so that it emulates the formatting of a previous version of
Word. Having this ability makes viewing these types of documents
easier. The changes you make aren’t permanent, so you can change things
back to the old display if you need to.
1. Open the document.
2. Go to Tools | Options | Compatibility.
3. Click on the Font Substitution button to substitute non-supported
fonts with supported ones, and click OK.
4. Choose the version of Word you want to emulate from the Recommended
Options For drop-down list.
5. Enable the appropriate check boxes in the Options list to select any
additional desired display aspects.
6. Click OK.

Today we get to deal with compatibility problems between Office 2007and previous versions. Office 2007 is supposed to be able to openstandard 2003 and previous files, but you still have font problemsoccasionally. If you’re using an older version of Office, you candownload the Compatibility Pack which is supposed to make OpenXML documents work in Office 2003, but it’s kind of a hit and miss affair.
