Find the TT Font you want and load it to your system via the Font Loader
The font came with 6.5. Are you suggesting I have to buy it from Linotype to use it in CD3?
Make that CS3.
That may be. It seems News Gothic is a Trademarked font.
Get it from the original fonts Folder where you first installed it then. Is it not here any longer?
Windows fonts only go in one place, the Fonts folder. Premiere and all other programs read this folder for their font selections. If it didn't show up in the project, that's a pretty good sign that the font is not there.
You will find News Gothic in the Goodies Folder on the CS3 Install 'Content' Disk
If you want to use a particular font you do not need to install it in the font folder of windows, anywhere on the computer will do.
Open the font first then open Premiere, the font is now ready to use in the titler.
All my extra fonts are in a seperate folder and i use a font viewer. This way i do not have a very long list of fonts in Premiere, Photoshop etc.
Thank you all for your input. Here's the thing. The fonts supplied in the Adobe title function are not made available to the system. Fonts in Windows/Fonts show up in the Titler but the fonts unique to the titler do not show up in Windows/Fonts.
I'm going to see what Adobe Premier tech support says and I'll let you know.
Just received Craig's message #7. I downloaded the program and don't have that disc. Thanks for this comment. I'll contact Adobe.
I will assume that you are on the same computer, with the same OS, that you had P6.5 on, but have now installed CS3. If that font was loaded to your Windows Fonts originally, it should still be there. Though it might have come from P6.5, if it was useable before, it should still be installed. An uninstall of P6.5 should not delete fonts, even if that program originally installed them.
If you have lost the font, I'd go back to your P6.5 disc(s) and locate it there. Copy it over to a temp folder and then install it via Control Panel>Fonts, File>Install New Font. The installation will ask if you wish to Copy Fonts to Font Folder, make sure this IS checked.
As Ann points out, if you use a font "manager," like Extensis Suitcase, the old ATM, etc., the fonts can reside anywhere, and will be installed, when and if, you need them. If you DO have a font manager, just make sure that this font is chosen to load.
IIRC, News Gothic was included in almost every Adobe program, that I've had for the last half-dozen years. It's usually in one of the Goodies, or Extras folder on the install discs. If you have the CD/DVD for Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, heck almost any Adobe program, you have the font in a folder on the install discs.
Problem solved. The fonts from Premier 6.5 are stored in Program Files/Common/Adobe/Fonts. I was able to port them to the new machine running CS3 and load them into Windows/Fonts. My titles all show up properly now and I'm a happy man.
BTW, I got excellent Tech Support on this from Adobe on a call that was (gasp!) answered on the first ring.
Thank you all for your help.
Great! Adobe has taken some bashing lately (possibly deserved) on Tech Support. Glad that you had your font, located it/them on your system and all is right with the world.
In older installations (PS, AI, PM, and, I guess, P6.5) fonts were stored in separate folders, and were NOT copied to the Windows Fonts, but were just registered there. I had forgotten about that. Now, fonts usually go right in.
Like Ann mentioned, I have separate folders:
and use Extensis Suitcase to load the ones that I need. I've got some font sets by client, some by style and only have ones that I use every day installed. Reminds me, I need to clean out some of those, and put them into a set, as the Windows Fonts folder is getting fuller, than I like. Slows loading of many programs.
