Unfortunately the whole point of 2.93 is to get the unicode, font and codepage stuff working.

Have you tried this same process with the 2.93 RCs? Also using warpin try uninstalling lSwitcher make sure you delete the ini file and anything else that happens to still be in its directory then reinstall it. Before you run it reboot to make sure the newly installed hook is the one that is loaded.

This sounds like either a hook issue related to LIBPATH or an old ini file still in the install directory. It uses 4.System VIO for the hints. 2.92 used 6.System VIO. Is it possible that there is a problem with the font install in Both sizes exist according to the font palette.

It also uses 9.Warp Sans, 8.Times New Roman MT 30 and 8.Helv.

Yes stick to testing 2.93 as I have no plans to go back to 2.92 and start over. Thanks
