[SOLVED] HitFilm 14 UI Font Issue in Windows 10

edited November 2019 in HitFilm Pro Support

I just installed HitFilm Pro 14.0.1 and I'm experiencing an issue where the UI is displaying strange characters throughout the entire application (see screenshot example  from the link below). I was previously using version 13 and did not have this issue the last time I used it (although that was a few months ago). I thought the problem could be a corrupt or missing system font, so I found a web site that had instructions for restoring missing or damaged Windows 10 fonts which I did but this did not fix the problem (my Windows 10 installation is also up to date). I also uninstalled/re-installed HitFilm which did not help either. Anyone else experiencing this or have a solution? So far this is the only application installed on my PC that is having this problem.

    Probably won't be the fix, but also make sure your GPU drivers are up to date.  Might be best to put in a ticket with FXHome support, as this does sound odd.

    They will also want your system specs, so just as well post them here, as well.

    My video drivers are up to date. I de-installed 14 and re-installed 13 and found that 13 also displays the strange UI characters, but only on the left side of the opening home page - the rest of the application doesn't have this issue so it's usable. I'll open a ticket as you suggested and use 13 until I get a solution - thanks.

    PC with Intel i7-3770K 3.5 Ghz CPU, 32 GB of RAM

    Nvidia Quadro K4000 video card

    Windows 10 Home 64-bit (build 18363.476)

    The one thing I do notice is that your CPU is technically under spec to run HitFilm-  a 4th Generation Core processor is the requirement, however, your CPU is only 3rd Gen.  It may not be solvable, but since 13 was previously working fine, there is probably a solution

     It turned out that the problem was with a font called "Inter" which the FXHome support team asked me to check - this particular font seems to be nothing but dingbat characters instead of letters, so I simply deleted the font from my Windows font folder - the UI text in HitFilm now looks normal. I think this font has been on my system for a long time, so I'm not sure why HitFilm was using it. I also have another font installed called "Inter-UI" which is a font for user interfaces - maybe the other font was causing some kind of conflict in versions 13 and 14?
