Fonts missing from font list


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS X 10.6

Description of the issue

I want to use Myriad Pro in my layouts. The font -- an OpenType font with PostScript outlines -- is installed in the system folder and is turned on in FontBook, but it does not show up in the list of available fonts in FileMaker. I also tracked down a TrueType version of Myriad, installed it in the system folder and turned it on in FontBook. It does not show up in the FileMaker font list, either.

What do I need to do to use this font in my layouts?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Click font drop-down while in layout mode and scroll through list looking for desired font.

Expected result

All fonts that are installed on the system and active (on) in FontBook should be available in the font list.

Actual result

Many fonts that should be available are missing from the font list, and some fonts that are disabled (off) in FontBook show up in the font list.
