Just curious if anyone else out there on a Mac (I'm on 10.5.8) is having trouble with Helvetica Neue (or any other System fonts) being accessable from the Fireworks CS5 font list?
I expect that I should see a whole slew of Helvetica Neue typefaces (PostScript) in my list (from 25 Ultra Light on up to 107 Extra Black Condensed Oblique) but instead all I get are the TrueType options that you see in the image below:
Also, Helvetica Neue appears in my font list twice... but both options give the identical TrueType font choices.
The crazy thing is that I can copy/paste a string of editable text from Photoshop and it will display the correct typeface AND maintain its editability within Fireworks CS5 but, the second drop-down menu appears blank. It's almost as if the system knows I have the PostScript font installed and available, but Fireworks doesn't know how to let me choose it.
How many fonts do you have installed? Unless this has been changed in recent versions, Fireworks can't keep more than 600 active at any one time.
I'm having this same issue. I can fix it by removing the system version (dfont) but then my browser won't show the font properly (outlines). I've got the whole creative suite and this is the only program that has this issue.
When I migrated from CS3 to CS5 this happened. Fireworks won't show the Post script version unless you remove the system font.
Adobe should use the same text/font handling throughout the suite.
I just updated my Mac to OS X Lion, and still having this issue. Super annoying.
