This looks just fine to me.
Are you getting any error messages in the output log, as in:
"makeotflib [WARNING] not in Font Menu Name database [TrumpMediaevalLTStd-Roman]"
Are the line-endings right for the platform in the FonMenutDB file?
Is the font DB file being found ? ( you can look in the file "current.fpr" to see what used in the last run)
yes, i did get the warning "makeotflib [WARNING] not in Font Menu Name database [P22CezannePro]"
I don't know what you mean by line-endings.
I can't find the current.fpr to see if the DB is being found.
okay, i found my .fpr. still can't get it to work. any ideas?
The .fpr file should tell you what FontmenDB file is being used. The error message means what it says: makeotf it is not finding the PS name for your font in FontMEnuDB file in use. Several possibilities:
1) the PS name in the FontMenuNameDB file is different
2) the syntax is not correct, so it is not recognized. If you are working on more than one platform, you can get a file with Unix line-endings being processed in a Mac Classic environment, or vice-versa. In this case the "return" character, aka new line char, aka line-ending is a different character code on one environment than the other, and if it is not matched to the environment, then the file will look like one line with no new-lines to a tools. You might also have accidentally entered an invisible character ny accoident with a keywboard control sequence - rare, but possible.
3) the wrong FontMenuNameDB file is being used. If you are using the command-line version of makeotf, then use the option to specify the fontMenuNameDB file you want.
