Hi,

I am using word 2010 in a windows 7 OS.

I have installed the STIX fonts. When I try to write a math expression using the STIX font, windows crashes and has to restart.

Do you have any suggestions of how to make this more stable?

Thanks,
Charlie

    Looking back at previous posts, it seems like this behaviour has been seen before.

    I tried to use the font outside the math environment.

    The font can be selected from the font drop down menu. When the font is applied to text, the text is invisible. Word does seem stable when doing this though.

    I have also been able to use the XITS fonts in math environments without crashing problems. Unfortunately, the XITS fonts do not print to PDF documents successfully.

    Here is the file with the fonts used outside a math area.

    Furthermore, if I change the font type of an equation that has already been written to STIX, then the programme does not crash. The fonts do not display correctly though. The subscripts seemed to disappear and produce underscores.

    What is the time frame do you think of fixing this problem? days or years? It would be helpful for me to know.

    There have been numerous reports of problems using the STIX fonts in a Word environment. To date we have been unable to isolate the cause and correct the problem. Can you please clarify whether its Word 2010 that crashes or windows OS 7?

    It is Word 2010 which crashes. I can continue running windows os 7 and just reload Word.

    I think the problem I mentioned with the XITS fonts are caused by words pdf printer.
