Can't find system fonts in font list

Post by sgtaylor5 » Wed May 16, 2018 1:31 am

This is the list of the "c" fonts in TextMaker:
c font list.tiff
(73.55 KiB) Downloaded 3 times
This is the list of system fonts that start with "c" on my El Capitan 2009 MBP:
c system font list.tiff
(108.38 KiB) Downloaded 3 times
It's not just the "c" fonts that are listed. There's many more fonts that aren't seen.

Now what?

Confirmed – the font list in TextMaker shows only a fraction of the fonts which are installed on my system (and are visible in other programs like e.g. TextEdit).

Are the fonts installed in sub folders? It seems sub folders are not yet supported (see the discussion in the German forum: http://forum.softmaker.de/viewtopic.php ... 34#p113934).

This is one reason, yes. Checked it once more - for fonts not in subfolders, it depends on the font type. SMO doesn't support TrueType collections (*.ttc), some (older) Mac-specific font types: TrueType (Mac) and Data fork suitcase (*.dfont), and the discontinued Multiple Master fonts. I didn't check ordinary PostScript Type 1 fonts as I haven't installed any of these.
More information about Mac font types here: https://support.apple.com/kb/TA22195?lo ... viewlocale

What kinds of font types does SoftMaker Mac support?

In any case, TrueType (Windows) (*.ttf) and OpenType (*.otf).
