For now I am converting the text to paths before bringing them in to Catalyst but it would be nice not to have to do that.
FC cannot import "Type 1" fonts. Do you know what type of font you are trying to import?
I'll be honest, I don't know if it's a type 1 or not. They probably are. The two fonts I was having trouble with are FF Din and Mrs. Eaves.
I too am trying to get DIN to import. This "not supporting type 1 fonts" is totally unfeasible. Especially when it comes to fonts like DIN and Mrs. Eaves. We are currently building a site in FC for Adobe to premiere the next rev of FC and our entire site is designed with Bodoni and DIN and neither font is supported!
