    I finished the installation of PageStream 3.2 in my MorphOS 3.3 system. Everything apparently went smoothly,

    I finished the installation without error messages, entered my registration information, the program opens fine and all menus seem to respond, but I am not able to type in any text in a blank new document.

    I checked in Project>System Preferences> Fonts and the Installed Fonts Drawer shows the following drawers:
    - Fonts/Intellifonts
    - SofLogikFonts
    - StandardFonts
    - StudioFonts

    So I'm assuming the assigns are OK, but what can be happening?

    I will appreciate any help.

    Do you have set all assigns in user-startup? Maybe something went wrong during installation....

    Should look like this (certainly with your pathes)
    .........
    Assign PageStream: "Work:PageStream3"
    Assign SoftLogik: "PageStream:SoftLogik"
    Assign Fonts: "PageStream:SoftLogik/Fonts" ADD
    .........

    Be sure that you have realy the right and full(!) path to Pagestream-Fonts directory!
    If everything went ok font "triumvirate-normal" shoud be choosen automatically when typing text......

    This is what my user-startup looks like:
    ;BEGIN: PageStream3
    Assign PageStream3: "sys:Applications/PageStream3"
    Assign SoftLogik: "PageStream:SoftLogik"
    Assign Fonts: "PageStream3:SoftLogik/Fonts" ADD
    ; END PageStream3

    And font "triumvirate-normal" is selected by default when I click on the "A" icon on the side tool bar to enter text.

    Am I missing something?

    Strange! Looks ok! Does SnoopDOS give any hints?

    I switch meanwhile to my A3000, whitch has Pagestream3 installed (on Pegasos I'm working with Pagestream4)................

    Additional question: Color for fonts line and fill is activated and set to a different color then background?

    On MOS-Systems its better to use Snoopium (is similar to SnoopDOS on 68K-Amigas). You will find it here: http://aminet.net/search?query=snoopium
    Start it before starting Pagestream. Snoopium will show you now what PS is additionally loading (to mainprog) from your HD. And it shows you wether these additional files are found or not.........

    I guess I need a better set of adf images for the installation. Other than that I do have a legit registration number. Any chance somebody could share a good .lha of 3.2 or later version?

    Or any suggestions on how to fix this mess?

    Seems that PS does not find the Pagestream FONTS direktory (don't confuse with softlogik.font - this is only a screen-systemfont).
    Normaly Pagestream Fonts are installed in directory Pagestream3:Fonts/..... Next step is to mark the right fonts-path in Pagestream's Systemprefs (Fonts) - in your case you have installed them in FONTS: - so mark this path..

    Got it to work, but when I point to Fonts/Intellifonts or any other folder inside the Fonts drawer, it only adds a folder called Fonts.

    So I have access to a limited number of fonts only, but is working. How do I do to add all the folders (IntelliFonts, SoftLogik, Standard and Studio)?

    Thank you.

    I have installed them all in Pagestream/Fonts - every font-family in its own directory and marked them in PS/Systemprefs (for each family an entry) - thats all.

    That's what I did too but I only show approx. 44 different fonts only. My Project>System Preferences is pointing to the drawer or folder containing all the other font folders.

    By the way, thank you very much fo r the help you are giving me :-)

    I have been having this FONT issue with Pagestream since I started using MorphOS, and I still haven't got it to work AT ALL, even with your idea, but then I'm not sure by saying

    Where is PS on MorphOS - or do you mean the menu Pagestream/System Preferences - as that makes no difference for me on my Mac Mini running MOS 3.2.

    I have added the MOSSYS:Fonts directory - makes no difference
    I have added the SYS:Fonts directory - makes no difference

    I already have the folders for Pagestream assigned - during installation

    So I have:

    Assign PageStream4: "Work:PageStream"
    Assign SoftLogik: "PageStream:SoftLogik"
    Assign Fonts: "PageStream:SoftLogik/Fonts" ADD

    Is there some other assign that allows Pagestream to function correctly with fonts, or do the fonts need to be moved into another folder(s) to get the MorphOS system to "see"" them, and Pagestream to recognise they are there and utilise them - it really is a weird, and perplexing problem to resolve, for me, and it seems for others as well..

    I have all the PageStream fonts in their correct drawers, and I have also copied some of the fonts to the Pagestream Fonts directory itself in the vain hope that Pagestream would find them in there and allow me to use the program at last, but no luck.

    Hi all, I must say that PageStream 4 works perfectly under MorphOS 3.x, even though the program
    is veeeeery old, it still can be used even professionnaly for industrual production (that's what I use it for).
    With very old I want to say about feaures missing for todsays layout needs, like transparency, color blending,
    able to use otf fonts, cms color calibration, etc, etc. All these features will be in PageStream 5.x for MorphOS
    when it will be available.

    Now about the fonts, I have all fonts that I use with PageStream4 in a subdir in PageStream4 dir called fonts
    and then other dirs with different font types, like ttf etc.

    It looks like this:
    System:PageStream/Fonts/Intellifonts
    System:PageStream/Fonts/IQEfonts
    System:PageStream/Fonts/Serialsfonts
    etc.

    In the user-startup I have:
    ;BEGIN PageStream
    Assign PageStream: "System:PageStream" DEFER
    Assign PageStream3: "System:PageStream" DEFER
    Assign PageStream4: "System:PageStream" DEFER
    Assign SoftLogik: "PageStream:SoftLogik" DEFER
    Assign Fonts: "PageStream:SoftLogik/Fonts" ADD
    ;END PageStream

    If you run PageStream4 under MorphOS 3.x you need to select a 16bit Screen because there seem to
    be a bug in PageStream which does not show text on a 24bit Screen!!!

    And last to run PageStream4 without problems you need to delete de CSets folder in the Softlogik folder.

    That's more or less all to run PageStream4 under MorphOS 3.x

    BTW, I only use postscript fonts (Adobe Type 1 .afm and .pfb) because I always print to postscript printers and these fonts give the best results and printing is fast!

    Hope this helps

    Regards
    Christoph

    I'm having the same issue now with Pagestream 4.2.

    I have mounted the images of 5 Pagestream fonts disks and copied the contents (drawers with fonts) in the Pagestream 4/Fonts folder. Then when I launch Pagestream, go to System Preferences/Fonts, and add the drawer with fonts, and add again, I click save or use (following the instructions in the User Manual, but the software still finds only 44 classic fonts.

    Any help to solve this riddle will be appreciated. :-0

    As I've wrote above:
    (This is for Pagestream4, but in Pagestream3 it's similar, and yes, I used PS as shortcut for Pagestream)

    1. All Fonts in Pagestream directory:

    Work:PageStream4/Fonts> dir

    SerialsFonts (dir)
    IQEfonts (dir)
    StudioFonts (dir)
    SoftLogikFonts (dir)
    StandardFonts (dir)
    Intellifonts (dir)
    Intellifonts.info IQEfonts.info
    SerialsFonts.info SoftLogikFonts.info
    StandardFonts.info StudioFonts.info

    Work:PageStream4/Fonts>



    2. User-Startup:

    ; PageStream4
    Assign PageStream: "Work:PageStream4"
    Assign PageStream3: "Work:PageStream4"
    Assign PageStream4: "Work:PageStream4"
    Assign SoftLogik: "PageStream:SoftLogik"
    Assign Fonts: "PageStream:SoftLogik/Fonts" ADD

    3. Fontprefs in Pagestream:

    Fonts/Intellifonts
    Fonts/IQEfonts
    Fonts/Serialfonts
    Fonts/Softlogikfonts
    Fonts/Standardfonts
    Fonts/Studiofonts
    FONTS:_Truetype

    ---> Notice: No semicolon for fonts located in Pagestream/Fonts-directory! With semicolon Pagestream is searching in the global font-directory.....

    In my case I have now more than 120 usable fonts.....

    You simply enter the path where the fonts are located into the Default Drawer string.
    Here is mine:
    System:PageStream/Fonts

    Then you click on Add and add a drawer.
    Then you hit Update
    Then you hit Save

    After that, at least here, the new fonts are available. That's all!

    I had the same issue with pagestream 3.2.
    None of the magazines I made way back when would show the titles.
    I installed Pagestream 4 and reopened them and they were perfect.
    Apparently some sort of missing font issue.
    All I can say is Pagestream 4 works.

    I moved my PageStream 4 (4.08.10) installation from my System:Applications to Work: Because I need to leave more room in my system partition.

    CLARIFICATION: I'm using a copy of a previous installation that I had installed in my previous MorphOS 3.1 and that I moved to a USB pendrive, so I didn't run the typical image mount > installer method.

    Could anyone help me to edit the user-startup sequence to reflect this change; Work: Pagestream4? This is what I used to have:

    ;BEGIN PageStream
    Assign PageStream: "System:PageStream" DEFER
    Assign PageStream4: "System:PageStream" DEFER
    Assign SoftLogik: "PageStream:SoftLogik" DEFER
    Assign Fonts: "PageStream:SoftLogik/Fonts" ADD
    ;END PageStream

    My Fonts are located in "Work:Pagestream4/SoftLogik/Fonts

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    You can't locate them all in ....softlogik/Fonts!! That directory is reserved ONLY for Pagestream's systemfonts.

    You have to arrange your Pagestream/Fonts directory in the way I discribed some posts above (Nr.#18). Here you also see the correct assigns...

    I've recently sent a few PMs to WeiXing3D to assist him with his problem with Pagestream, and I have now managed to get my FONTS issue with Pagestream fixed, so all my Pagestream fonts are now working correctly.

    Thanks to all members who posted information about resolving this issue, but I think my problem was fixed by changing something in my FILE>PREFERENCES > (PREFERENCES REQUESTER) TYPE option, and there I changed something like the font size (which wasn't working at the time), clicked on OK, then SAVED the changes, and hey-presto my FONTS were working OK - it really has been a weird problem, but I'm really pleased my Pagestream program is now working under MorphOS as it was one of my main programs for Amiga 68k, so it's great for it to be working now. :-D

    For Pagestream fans, I spoke to Deron a week or 2 ago and he said he was currently working on a MorphOS specific version of Pagestream 5 so I really do hope that is realised soon. :-D

    Probably a stupid suggestion, but have you checked to make sure it is not simply a white text on white background problem? Sometimes the simplest solutions get over looked.
