>Hi there at Wolfram Support,
>I have recently bought a Windows version of Student mathematica and hve been have a small problem with certain characters from different symbol palettes. I find that when I pick the symbol for function i.e. (f) I get another symbol that looks nothing like the on I want. This is happening on a number of symbols that I have tried to use but not all of them. I Have tried to find some information in the online book about this but I could find anything about it. The disturbing thing is that when the book makes reference to keyboard shortcuts the character set they show is that of a European language not the english keyboard. Could you please help me out on this one.
You might try removing your FrontEnd prefs file, init.m,
and your Caches folder, see:
You may also need to uninstall and reinstall your fonts:
To properly remove the fonts:
a.Double-click the Fonts icon in the Control Panels.
b.Select the Math fonts. The font names begin with Mathn, where n is a digit from 1 to 5. Most have names such as Math1Mono and Math1Mono-Bold.
c.Choose Delete from the File menu.
Then reinstall the fonts from the CD
