PE 15 - Text Engine not initialized?

PE 15 - Text Engine not initialized?

Postby MaryAnne » Sat Jul 15, 2017 10:48 am

Hey guys,

I wanted to try one of these fancy new "fun" edits in PE 15. Picture in text I think it is called. Took photo from Organizer into editor, selected the fun edit guide. First instruction was to click on the "Type Tool" button and write on photo. But when I put the cursor down, this message came up "Could not complete your request because something prevented the text engine from being initialized." Say What?? Checked my settings, tried again. Nada Then I went into the expert mode and created a layer just for the text - nope. The text tool isn't working.

I also have Premier 15 and I guess I used it for text and never realized that perhaps the tool in Elements has not been working since I downloaded?

Is this one of those times where I need to uninstall and reinstall? Thought I'd ask BEFORE I made a mess (been there - done that!). And then where do I go if I need to reload from Adobe?

BTW - I'm on Windows 10, i7-Core-2600, CPU @3.40 GHz, 12g RAM, Nvidia GeForce GXT 750 ti

Thanks
Mary Anne

Try this:

First, close PSE. Then, make sure you set the Windows folder view options to show hidden files and folders.

Go to this folder: C:\Users\[user_name]\AppData\Local\Adobe\TypeSupport\PSE15

Rename the file AdobeFnt_OSFonts.lst to AdobeFnt_OSFontsold.lst

Start PSE.
