well I finally got it working..the problem was that subfolders was checked and when I refreshed it would switch over to my F drive(my extra 1 terabyte internal hd) and start scanning and freeze because I have lots of stuff in there...once I unchecked the subfolders before I pressed refresh..it allowed me to point it to where I wanted to go..I also keep all my fonts in different folders under a main font folder..I have fat,thin,scripty,novelty,valentines,st pats, old times looking,shapes,loopy,grungy,gorjuss type, and the list goes on lol but I only point to one of those at a time or I think the font thing would go nuts..
I have 476 installed fonts and 5,408 in my other folders under fonts in my documents... I also have a font download folder where I dl all my zips,unzip them and then after I look at them all, place them in the proper folders.. I make a lot of siggy tags for several groups I am in and I use many different fonts. I am a font hog lolol I am always seeing new ones that would look good on my tags.
