Printer fonts for Seagull printer drivers and BarTender's Barcode fonts are not listed under the printer properties > Fonts tab, nor are they available for use in BarTender Designer when the Seagull Printer Driver is selected.
- Windows 10 and higher
- Windows Server 2016 and higher
- Seagull Scientific Printer Drivers
Make sure that the correct printer is selected.
- Open the print dialog in BarTender Designer.
- Verify that the correct printer is selected.
If the fonts still don't appear when the correct printer is selected, the issue may be due to changes in Windows' security policy. Under newer Windows versions(Windows 10 / Server 2016 and higher) fonts that are outside of the default %windir%/Fonts folder are automatically blocked.
This security setting can be disabled using either the Windows Group Policy or the Windows registry.
Windows Group Policy
Open the Group Policy editor (gpedit.msc) and browse to Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Mitigation Options\Untrusted Font Blocking
Verify this setting is set to Disabled or logging without blocking untrusted fonts.
Open the Registry Editor (regedit.exe) and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Kernel\.
If the MitigationOptionskey isn't there, right-click and add a new QWORD (64-bit) value, renaming it to MitigationOptions.
Right click on the MitigationOptions key, and then click Modify.
Make sure the base option is set as Hexadecimal, and then update the value data as indicated below. If there is an existing value, values should be saved during your update. For example, in some cases, if the current value is 1000, your updated value should be 1000000001000.
