Bug Report Custom font not appearing on OBS upon PC restart


New Member
I've been having problems with my OBS GDI+, I like this 100% free font called "flipps", it's a pixel arty font.
The problem is that I install the .otf file and restart OBS so it detects it, it works, but as soon as I restart my computer the text does not display until I reinstall the font and then restart OBS, even tho OBS still sees that the font exists when going into the GDI+ properties.
steps for reproducing:
-Download and install custom font
-test it on OBS
-restart computer
-open OBS
The text should not display at all

This is how it looks like when broken:

How it looks like while the font is still working:

I have also recently encountered this. Used to work fine on my laptop, and doesn't work at all on my new PC. Any fixes on the horizon?

When installing the font, select to do it "for all users" (requires admin). Per-user font installation is buggy.
