Photoshop lists all fonts that are present in 'Fonts' folder in Windows.
If PS is not listing some fonts:
- Either those fonts are not located in 'Fonts' folders (Windows keeps it in a secret statsh as they're proprietary to Windows 7)
- One or more of those fonts are corrupt. Adobe doesn't list corrupt fonts. In fact, often times Photoshop hangs when you have one or more corrupt/ invalid font registries on your system. Scan for corrupt fonts and remove them
Can you post the 'fonts' that are 'missing', so we can see if they have any associated known issues with Photoshop?
Thanks for the reply, I've jsut checked and the fonts are in c:\windows\fonts, how can I post the fonts up or are you jsut after the name?
Just the names.
Well another thing I've noticed with few fonts - the canonical names of the fonts will be something like '_VW Light' but the actual font name may be 'Volkswagen Light'. In this case, Photoshop wont show the font as VW Light but as Volkswagen Light. Have you tried this out?
HelveticaNeue is not a Windows native font. But anyway, it will show up in Photoshop as one typeface - 'Helvetica Neue'. Subtypes will show up as 'Bold, Black, Light, Roman'.
This is one of my personal favorites and I use it all the time without any hassles.
Can you open Photoshop and take a screenshot of the 'menu bar' with the font listing beginning with 'He...'?
On the other hand, can you try placing a copy of these fonts in here to see if that works?
Program Files (x86) > Common Files > Adobe > Fonts
Put them in x64 if you're running Photoshop as 64bit.
The forum you posted your original question in is brand new and I think we can get more attention to your problem if I move this thread to the Photoshop General Discussion forum. I'm pretty sure that someone in that forum will be able to help you.
Zehnder, looking at your screenshot, HelveticaNeue LT Pro is showing up in Photoshop. 6th font from the one you've highlighted in the screenshot.
Choose that first. Then, to its right, where it shows 'Regular', you'll be able to change it to Roman, Bold, Black, Italic, etc...
Thanks for all your help, you're a star .... I'm a little worried how the user in our Marketing dept who has been using this product for a number of years did not know this! :$..... Gotta love Marketing haha
