    bin font from system to system changes

    So I grab a bin from an 8.5.something AMC with a bin font of Arial and open it in a system running AMC 6.5.4 and the bin font becomes Brush Script MT.

    How did this happen?

    Re: bin font from system to system changes

    I have read that the problem is how Avid keeps track of fonts.  Supposedly, it keeps track of fonts by counting them as a list in one situation and keeps track of them alphabetically in others.  Add a new font, problems can happen.

    At least that was the supposition a few years ago.  I do not really know, but I have been plagued by this as well.


    EDIT:  I see that you are on version 6.x.  Something tells me this issue was fixed since that version as I have not had it recently.
