Thanks for the tidbit - it makes things a lot clearer!
The TTSNOTE.FOR font, I found, resides within the
application's folder in Program Files and appears to
go through this motion every time it starts up. So,
my guess is that it goes away after the program
closes. I know that on my Win install, the app never
permanently moves the font to my system fonts folder.
Anybody have a workaround for making this work?
