Inventor dialogue fonts garbled

Hi all;


This is a really odd one. I changed the font (App, Options) from Tahoma to Segoe, worked with it like that for a while, didn't like it and changed it back to Tahoma. Then got the below (IV Pro 2012, latest SP, unfortuantely I cannot read the About dialogue)...

Any idea how to fix this? Every time I start Inventor it's a different font (non of which I can read).


I have IV 2013 Pro installed on the same machine, no problems there. Could that be the problem?

This looks like Arabic to me.  Is it possible someone is messing with you, since you say it keeps changing?

By someone I assume you mean Autodesk?:smileywink:


I'm a single user, no network, all updates (Microsoft and Autodesk) plus Avira Antivir Premium up to date and running. 


No, it must be a software issue. I also had IV 2013 beta installed at a stage, I'm sure something must have gotten corrupt with all the installing and uninstalling and hotfixes.


Anyway, I'm using 2013 now (as of today). No problems so far.
