Question for an odd situation. Yesterday, I installed the software for a Canon 8600F Scanner. I tested the machine, and it seems to work fine. However, afterwards when I went into Publisher to access a document I was working on, I received this message:
"A font used in this publication is either not available or will not be loaded. In either case, Publisher will substitute the font. This will affect the look and flow of the publication."
Wassup with that? It turned out the missing font is called "Symbol", and I had used some bullet points from that font for this pubication. Now I've substituted some bullet points from another font, but I'd like to get my "symbol" font back.
Any ideas? I've tried a couple of the free font sites, and they have many fonts that include the word "symbol", and I'm not very comfortable using the free font sites anyway. Does Word/Windows XP have a default "symbol" font that comes with the system? If so, how can I get it back?
I already contacted Canon - they claim there was no correlation between the installation of the scanner software and the disappearance/unavailability of the font (Hmmmmm......)
Thanks in advance for any ideas.
