    Same font file, different font family in software

    BobM1990 Level 1

      Hi guys

       

      I'm not sure if this is the right place for my question but I'm having some trouble with fonts on my iMac.

       

      A few weeks ago, I bought three fonts/font files online, and installed them on my MacBook Pro with Fontexplorer X Pro. Now on the Macbook I can find them in the same Family in no matter which software like Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator or in Word, Excel...

       

      Last week when I installed my brand new iMac, I also setup the same 3 font files via Font Explorer X Pro the same way as I did it on the MacBook Pro. Suddenly, on the iMac, the 3 fonts now are divided in 2 font Families, with a difference: TT and OTF.

       

      Quite annoying since for one client in particular, I constantly need to switch between those three font types which I could do in just some arrow clicks on the keyboard, but since they are now in different families because of the OTF and TT difference, I need to click on the font list every time etc...

       

       

      Does anyone know if I can select something like "do not separate OTF and TT" or... ?

       

      Thanks!
