Hi
I have an Excel add-in with  taskpane that allows the user to select a font
from the font dialog that then changes the font of a label on the taskpane.
O am getting the following error when I select certain fonts. Is there a wayto
limit the list of fonts on the Font dialog to only include TrueType fonts

"Only TrueType fonts are supported. This is not a TrueType font"
