I just found that v184.108.40.206 of Nero’s Cover Designer has a really rotten bug: Whenever you edit any Text Box, its font reverts to 24pt Times New Roman!
This version of Cover Designer is included with Nero 220.127.116.11 (which is evidently the very last version published before the switch to 6.x). I didn’t encounter this bug in 18.104.22.168, 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199 – although those earlier versions did exhibit many smaller deficiencies in the Cover Designer’s “Text Box tool.”
I have three questions:
â€¢ Does anyone know which version of Nero this awful bug first appeared in?
â€¢ Can I install (“downgrade”) an older version of Nero over a newer one?
â€¢ Can I install (“downgrade”) an older version of just the Cover Designer over a newer one?
The worst problem in older versions of Cover Designer was that CG Times seemed to be the only variable-width font that was fully useable when other fonts were present in the same Text Box. I found that 16 of my fonts couldn’t even be displayed correctly, while 27 of my fonts (including Times New Roman, the default font!) were displayed correctly, but not printed correctly. Only 3 of my fonts were displayed correctly AND printed correctly: CG Times, Calisto MT (but only if NOT Bold or Italic), and Tahoma (but only if you kept it simple – no other fonts present).
[Edited to correct Nero version number from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206]
P.S. – I’ve submitted a “Support form” to Ahead, but previous experience makes me unconfident about getting an answer.
