Using Graphic Tracer
The program crashes during startup. What should I do?
This can happen if the program is building the font database and you have a corrupted font file in your system. Read more here about how you can solve the problem.
The program says "The Characters have not been connected to the graphics objects." - what's wrong?
Click Next and make sure that the characters are correct in the boxes beneath every letter. Then you can search by clicking Next or Last search for the previous results or you can select a font list if you know where to find the font immediately. Here is a video explaining font identification in Graphic Tracer.
I get the message "Could not load the installed fonts database." What should I do?
This can happen if the database file has become corrupted. Restart the program with the Control key pressed until the first dialog box appears. The program will now re-generate the database file.
