Scribus not recognizing newly installed fonts

(1/4) > >>

rowlandr:
For a new project I downloaded and successfully installed new True Type fonts into the Windows 10 Windows/Fonts directory. Now I have a Scribus problem I didn't have before with the fonts installed prior to installing Scribus and working on previous projects.  Scribus doesn't recognize the newly installed fonts.
These fonts are Scribus compatible--recommended on another site for a book project I am now working on.
I have verified that the fonts are properly installed in the /Fonts directory.   Closing Scribus and reopening doesn't help. The Scribus Font list under preferences doesn't list the new fonts.  Shutting down the computer and restarting yields the same results.
Solutions please.

thanks

I have the problem mentioned at the end of that post you pointed to.
When I open Scribus and try the Fonts  "add" function it doesn't see the Windows/Font folder.
That's even though Scribus in the main font menu does recognize every font that existed in the Windows/Font folder prior to installing Scribus a while ago.
As I said it appears that Scribus has no problem with any font (as far as I can tell) that existed in the Font folder prior to installation of Scribus only ones added since I installed Scribus.
The new fonts I first installed are

EB Garamond
Sorts Mill Goudy

which are recommended on a couple of sites and therefore should be fully compatible with Scribus.  These were installed a couple of weeks ago and today I installed a couple of symbol fonts GE Nautica and Significante (the project I am working on is a sailor's guide book)

I can substitute the already installed Garamond if need be.   I would like to be able to use the symbols for some parts of the book.

Whether I installed the new fonts a couple of weeks ago or today, Scribus can't find them

thanks for your help.

The font folder in Windows is usually a hidden file... have you tried turning on hidden folders system wide before opening Scribus?

I am a techy reaching back to the 80s.  So none of my Windows folders, including Fonts are hidden at the moment.

thanks
