I'm run a dual boot with Windows XP and Windows 7. I'm using CorelDraw. I do not have problem using XP fonts, but when I make a design and try to open in Windows 7's Arial Black font, it always displays in italics. The same design in XP has no italic effect. After removing the italic, the problem I'm getting after conversion or exporting to JPEG also makes it italic.

I have created a .gif of the problem I'm facing. I have the text and whenever I type in Arial Black Font, the default comes in italic, then I have to make it normal and non-italic. As you can see, when I move the text it's normal but the "shadow" looks italic. And finally, when I convert it also looks normal but after converting it's italic. This is a problem with the Arial Black font only. I have download the fresh font from website and copy pasted. Still same issue.

    Fontnav should be installed with your Corel Draw, you have to uninstall it. (remove it)
