A colleague using MiKTeX 6300 and WinEdt 10.2 together with YAP to view DVIs is having problems with font encoding in dialog boxes produced by YAP, two samples of which are given below. These cropped up only recently (until then everything was working fine).

YAP Dialog

YAP Dialog2

This happens regardless of the source file used (the source in the two samples above is http://physics.clarku.edu/sip/tutorials/TeX/intro.html). The menus of YAP are in English and display fine (as shown), and usability is not impacted except for the "Goto Page" dialog box, which is illegible.

Can someone pinpoint a possible source for this, and possible fixes, short of uninstalling/reinstalling MiKTeX?

  • Welcome to TX SX! Very strange… I suppose you mean WinEdt 10.2 (there never was a version 2). Perhaps only uninstall and reinstall miktex-yap-bin-(x64)-2.9 with MiKTeX Package Manager? – Bernard May 22 '17 at 8:27
  • Thank you! Indeed I mistyped WinEdt 10.2, and have edited my question to correct this. – bob7294 May 22 '17 at 9:08

    If reinstalling miktex-yap-bin doesn't help you should imho ask in the miktex bug tracker. Christian Schenk will probably better know which font is used here and what could break it. – Ulrike Fischer May 22 '17 at 16:09
