    Problems selecting different weights of font.



      I have been facing a number of font selection issues in InDesign CC (2014). The issues, in summary are as follows:


      • If I select text on my layout, the name of the font used isn't necessarily displayed correctly in the 'Character' window, although it may/may not be displayed correctly in the other font window in the menu at the top of the screen.


      • I'm unable to slect text on my layout and simply scroll through the weights of that font, in the 'Character' window, and change the weight only. The only way I seem to be able to do this is to reselect the font name, then find the weight that I want.


      There may be other issues but I'm desperately trying to get a job out of the door, and I'm hoping that a solution the above will reveal a generic 'fix'.


      Please, if anybody can help I'd very much appreciate it. These 'advancements' seem somewhat ludicrous.


      Many thanks
