I just opened up a couple of my documents today & found that a font that I've had ever since we got Office 2007 has disappeared. It is now gone from Word and Publisher.

The font is Blue Highway. It's no longer on the dropdown menu, or in any of my documents. Unfortunately, it's a font that is used in our company logo, so this is VERY disturbing.

This is the message when I opened up the file for our return address labels:

Publication name:
C:\CA Files\Publisher\MBO Labels.pub
Embedded fonts:
Embedded fonts with license restrictions:
Fonts neither on the operating system nor embedded:
Blue Highway


Huh? This font was installed with our programs, directly from the original disc. All of a sudden it's gone? WTF? Could it have been removed during a MS Update?

Do I have to re-install Publisher & Word from the disc, or is there someplace that I can dl this font to work within those two programs?

It's VERY perplexing!

Thanks,

Yes, I also found it on that website. Thanks for verifying...

A couple of questions, though:

1) I assume that they are safe to dl from?
2) Once I dl the font, how does it get integrated into my Word & Publisher programs?

Thanks,

I assume it's a safe site
I received no alarms

I've never had to install fonts

Thanks for the info.

However, I'm still wondering WHY this font suddenly disappeared from Word & Publisher. Do you think the problem would be "solved" if I re-installed Word & Publisher from my original CD?

I have a sneaking suspicion this has something to do with MS's recent lawsuit loss; an update earlier this month would could have been the culprit in removing a disputed item like a font.
