My first thought is the Font information applied directly to the text will override the layout font assignment.
1. Try going to a layout where you can get to the actual data.
2. Select the data in the appropriate field
4. Past or better yet use the “Paste Text Only" command then you don’t have to do the next two steps
5. command-z to undo
- This will remove any text formatting from the text. If the text disappears then there most likely wasn’t any formatting applied.
A Font applied directly to the Merge text will override the layout Object font assignment.
Merge text looks something like this:
Select the first < and assign a Font to it. This value is then used to assign the Font to the merge text regardless of the Font assignment of the Object (select an object and you get the resize handles) its in.
Not all Fonts can be used in FMP 12. If the Font isn’t True Type then FMP 12 won’t use it.
