One of my users got CS6 installed a while ago, along with some custom fonts our company uses (called Bliss fonts). I installed the fonts myself, going through the windows Fonts folder - Add fonts. But Photoshop won't load in the fonts. They are nowhere to be found in the fonts list, and when the user opens a picture that contains the font and he tries to edit it, it says that the fonts are not available and PS will do a font substitution.
I've tried reinstalling the fonts, renaming (adding .old) to some maps accociated with PS (it was about corrupted files, something I found around here) but that didn't solve it either. The fonts are readily available in other programs such as Word and PPT. Does anyone have any tips? We're running WinXP if that's any help.
Your fonts do not contain proper identification info/ redundant identification info that matches anotehr font and Adobe programs therefore ignore them/ hide them for safety. This needs to be rectified in the font files themselves using a font editing software. Happens a lot when some lazy font designer just slapped in the company logos into a standard font and didn't edit all that stuff...
Ok, that doesn't sound good.. I just tried installing the Fonts on another computer running an earlier version of CS (just said CS version 8) and it worked like a charm. Is it a known thing that the older programs load the fonts even with that identification info missing?
