Thank you for your post.
To help future investigations, are you able to test the issue with FileMaker Pro 12 ?
Because i think this issue may be a collateral consequence of a bug's resolution described here.
I don't have FMP 12. My client does, however, and I know that the issue that I encountered with Gotham Bold (OpenType) on FMP 13 does not occur with FMP 12. It would be easy for me to just switch over to the Postscript version of the font for my own system, but because they are using the OpenType version of Gotham I need to find a solution that works both with their system and my own.
If you know of a workaround, I'd love to hear it.
I already tried doing this:
1. Open only the Bold weight of Gotham (Postscript). Create database in FMP 13 and set type in that font. Works fine.
2. Open only the weights of Gotham OpenType that I know work in FMP 13 (Light, Book, Medium). Doing step 2 caused FMP 13 to stop recognizing the Gotham Bold that I set in step 1. (It still looked fine, but its name was now blank in the formatting bar.) It also disappeared from FMP 13's font menu. I quit FMP 13.
3. I open FMP 11 and create a database using type set in Gotham Bold (Postscript) and Gotham Light (OpenType). No problems. Quit FMP 11.
4. I close the OpenType versions of Gotham and restart FMP 13. I can again set type in Gotham Bold (Postscript).
Clearly FMP 13 is having some sort of problem with certain OpenType fonts such as Gotham. Strangely I have not encountered this issue with other OpenType fonts such as DIN or Solex.
I do not have the whole explanation.
But following the last information you sent me privately (thank you) i can see you are expecting some font appear on Font menu even they should not :• Gotham Book Italic -> Appearing as "Gotham Book" on your Font Menu and should be activated when Italic style is selected• Gotham Light Italic -> Appearing as "Gotham Light" on your Font Menu and should be activated when Italic style is selected• Gotham Medium Italic -> Appearing as "Gotham Medium" on your Font Menu and should be activated when Italic style is selected
Etc… This is the result of FM 13 design change i talked about on my previous post.
However, i do not understand why "Gotham" and "Gotham Thin" are not appearing on your Font Menu as they should. Then, the following fonts should be activated with the appropriate style :• Gotham Bold• Gotham Bold Italic• Gotham Thin• Gotham Thin Italic
The mystery remains.
