Re: Win95 draft font

I've had the exact same problem. But calling up explorer,
shifting directories, then closing it always works for me. I
have no idea why this works. Also, make sure your display
properties are set to large fonts. I seem to recall that XyWin
looks for a certain font before it looks for an OEM font, and
apparently it can't find what it needs in Win95. Any thoughts
from TTG?
