    Open fonts in Illustrator

      I have recently purchased Myriad Pro Open Type and it won't seem to work in Illustrator V.7? Is there any reason for this? It works in every other package? Is it because it is not a Open Type TTF? Any help please.

          Do any of you font geniuses know how to transform an opentype Pscript font into a Truetype font so I can get it working in Illustrator? Thanks.

            Illustrator 7 is not compatible with OpenType .otf fonts (OpenType fonts with CFF PostScript outlines). Illustrator 8, 9 and 10 are all compatible with OpenType fonts.

            Although you could use FontLab 4 to convert the font to OpenType-TrueType, it would be easier and cheaper to simply upgrade your copy of Illustrator to a more recent version.

              I NEED TO ADD SOME FONTS TO ILLUSTRATOR CS2, THE FONTS WERE GIVEN TO ME ON A CD SO, I WENT TO ILLUSTRATOR FOLDERS AND LOOKED FOR THE ONE WITH THE FONTS AND SIMPLY ADDED THE FONTS FROM THE CD TO THE FONTS FOLDER FOR ILLUSTRATOR AND RESTARTED THE COMPUTER AND WHEN I WENT I WENT TO OPEN AN ARTFILE ON ILLUSTRATOR IT WAS STILL TELLING ME THAT THE ARTWORK WAS STILL MISSING THE FONTS THAT I SUPPOSELY JUST ADDED TO THE FONTS LIBRARY ON ILLUSTRATOR. ANY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY ADD FONTS FROM A CD TO ILLUSTRATOR.

                You might want to post your question on the Illustrator or the Typography forum, rather than adding to a five-year-old thread in a forum for font development. Also it would help if you didn't post in all caps.
