I never use ImageReady embedded in my English version of Photoshop CS2, but today I inadvertently ran it and noticed that its splash (About) screen, tabs and options are in Greek, while tools bar, drop down menus are in English. I wonder why, and if it can be remedied.

What operating system and language? Inconsistencies in the UI labeling usually point to a mismatch in the region settings. In addition, in your case you may be missing a font required to display all info. Greek letters are part e.g. of the MS Symbol font, also, and it may be used as a substitute for the missing font…

Mylenium, you are right, it’s English words written with Greek characters. That’s strange, since this font substitution occurs in ImageReady only, not in Photoshop CS2, and IR was installed by the PS CS2 installer with no extra questions asked. Exactly the same in IR within PS CS. I’m running Win 2K Pro, SP4, English version, with no problem whatsoever.

I would reset the prefs first and delete all the AdobeFnt.lst files to see if it clears up, I had a problem with CS2 help files where they would appears in various fonts at different times, was never sorted out (who needs help files anyways).

Mmh, Win2K? Haven’t heard that in eons. Did you perhaps create a mess by installing an Internet Explorer Update or an Office Service pack? W2K is not 100% Unicode safe, so some specific settings may need adjustment and/or an update has just blindly overwritten a font, which may be of a newer version with different glyph assignments…

It was Tahoma.ttf font file that got lost for reason unknown; a copy snatched from another machine restored order. Thanks to all of you for encouragement.
