Thanks - I've checked and there's nothing in that tab.

I'm using Scribus 1.6.1 on Windows 10 Pro.

I have that font installed on my system. Scribus shows all the weights you want. Have you checked for rejected fonts? (preferences/fonts rejected font tab)
those weights may have errors that cause them not to show.

Also helpful, what os & version are you using?

Yes, registration black is usually 100% of all 4 colors, because you want the registration marks to show on all 4 plates. That is kind of the whole point of the registration marks.

Hi all,
very new to Scribus but can't find an answer to this anywhere online.
I have a bunch of variable fonts (OpenType) that I'd like to use. But Scribus is only showing them in the thinnest weight. E.g. I'd like to use Source Sans 3 in 400/Regular and 600/Semibold, but all it's showing me is 200/Extralight.

I'm using the Content Properties window on my text frame, but I've also gone into File > Preferences > Fonts. I've tried adding the fonts again through Additional Paths there, but no joy. And I've checked the list; the only fonts it lists for Source Sans are Extralight and Extralight Italic.

The same issue is coming up for every 2-axis variable font I have; e.g. Montserrat only shows up in Thin and Thin Italic. I think the issue is that it's only reading along one axis, the italics; for variable fonts without an italics option I'm getting the thickness variations fine.

Anyway. If anyone can show me how to use regular old Source Sans 3, I'd be very grateful!

Isn't registration the sum of 100% inks that can be used (in this case C100%+ M100% + Y100% + K100% ?)
In any case, do you think I should report this to the MuseScore developers? In my opinion it should be treated merely as K100%, just as typical black text from word processing /desktop publishing software. But again, I am no expert in printing processes, so feel free to correct me.

As for my initial question, I seem to understand that there is no straightforward solution to my problem - I can achieve what I need only with workarounds, at the expense of file size and/or searchable text, correct?

hi pierruel

yes. you need a greek font (or a font with greek characters...)
you may install the font in your standard font directory or just place it in the same directory as the .sla file is stored.

it kinda sounds like it's related to an imported style

I don't use wine
if it's similar to the flatpaks maybe something like
"wine start /home/MyUserName/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Adobe/Photoshop 7.0/Photoshop.exe"

Hi utnik,
Sorry for the delay; I wasn't notified of an answer to my question. Thank you for answering.
I'm sorry I'm far from fluent in English neither writing nor reading.
I wrote on this forum the text I was willing to insert into Scribus using my latin, then greek keyboards, like this:
"C'est bien, persévère, μουσικὴν ποίει καὶ ἐργάζου, comme le songe disait à Socrate."
but it doesn't work inside Scribus. The 23 greek letters are replaced by empty squares.
I suppose that I should download a greek typeface into Scribus but I have no idea, how it can be done. Could you explain ? Many thanks in advance.

there is a space in the path, you prolly need quotes around that path

"/home/MyUserName/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Adobe/Photoshop 7.0/Photoshop.exe"
