Hi Chucky and all,

Has this issue been raised as a bug to SmithMicro?

I realize this thread has gone cold, but I have observed the same problems with respect to Fonts not showing up. I am using Moho Pro 13 and have uploaded a few fonts to my Windows 10 system. They show up OK in other applications (e.g. Microsoft Office apps, Affinity Designer, Corel Painter) but they do not appear to be available in Moho Pro. Puzzling. Is it possible that Moho takes a "snapshot" of available system fonts at the time of installation and does not update the list as new fonts are uploaded to the system? In any case, this should be flagged as a bug...it may be an easy fix and a solution is important to those of us who need specific fonts in our animations.

Yeah, I'm just not seeing this one.
There's no information being shared about fonts or OS or font management systems.
I regularly put new fonts in and have added several over the last few weeks.
No problems here.

I know the developers were looking into this issue (see my earlier post) but I don't think it's been fixed yet.

I don't use fonts inside Moho very often but, as reported, there are some fonts that still don't appear on my computer for no apparent reason. It doesn't matter if I'm using a font manager or just regular Windows, commercial or homemade fonts...some fonts just don't show up. It's very puzzling. For the time being, I'd set my type that needs a missing font in another program and import it.

When I get a chance, I'll ask about this again.

I don't use text in Moho much but just yesterday had a problem not being able to select a particular font.
For what it's worth, I encountered the bug in Moho Pro 12.4 which I'd been using for compatibility purposes; however, when I tested in Moho Pro 13.0.2 there was no bug -- the font showed up in the Select Font list as I would expect.
