i recently upgraded to 2.8 and now when i open an xcf when i attempt to edit text, even if i just delete one letter, it changes font back to the very first font in the font list(default?), size changes as well, hinting etc. it completely disregards what i had it at. like it can display it right upon opening it, but when i try to edit the text, it acts as if it has no idea what the text's initial attributes were. how do i fix this? it's a real pain in the neck because i have hundreds of fonts and i dont know them all by heart to just change it back, plus hinting and size i would have to guess at too.
any help is much appreciated
EDIT: never mind. im pretty sure now that i just dont have the font anymore, i forgot i did a windows reinstall and i think i forgot to backup some of my fonts. i am curious as to what this guy's problem is though http://registry.gimp.org/node/26272
