Scribus Doesn't See All My Fonts

(1/2) > >>

SadieBlack:
I managed to get Ghostscript installed, and Scribus is running fine under Lion. However the list of fonts in the story editor doesn't include the massive number of Celtic fonts (admittedly old) that I have. Is there a way to get the program to see those fonts?

I also really don't need to see all the fonts Apple uses for localization in the list of fonts.

Thanks for any help offered!

Nermander:
I don't know anything about how Scribus works under OS X, but there is information in the wiki on how to get Scribus to find additional fonts.

http://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/Installing_additional_fonts

Not sure if that information is up to date though.

SadieBlack:
Thank you for that link. I went to Preferences and added the fonts but they still didn't show up.

Now I am wondering if Scribus doesn't like TrueType fonts, or prefers Postscript fonts, which require the suitcase and the PS file. TrueType is more modern and the icon for the fonts prefs says "TT," which leads me to believe TrueType is fine.

I'm stumped. Anyone?

Nermander:
Did you restart Scrbius? As far as I know fonts are only read in att startup.

a.l.e:
generally speaking, scribus likes true type fonts (better than ps fonts)...

... one thing: scribus does not like bad fonts, but i don't think this is your case...

ciao
