I'm getting the above error whenever I try to open an existing form, or create a new form using any available method. I've tried running a repair, as well as a clean install but nothing seems to work. I've just installed the latest service pack and patches, but this has made no difference. I need to edit an existing form, but I'm unable to even open it. PLEASE HELP!

Unfortunately your suggestions haven't worked. I haven't installed any new fonts and deleting the app data folder hasn't changed anything. Still the same issues.

This are many possible reasons for this problem. It may be a defective font file like Arial MT. If you have recently installed new fonts remove them. Also, you can try to reset Designer to its factory defaults by renaming its folder under you user account (C:\Users\yourUsername\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Designer). The folder "Designer" will be recreated next time you start Designer.
