Is it just me or do others have problems using any font other than the basic fonts that come with Hype. The “all fonts” option only shows about a third of the fonts installed on my two computers.
Today I spent $31 and about $100 worth of labor trying to make 3 downloaded Monotype fonts work?
Waiting for an answer from Fonts.com, we shall see on that. In their documentation, they refer to cleaning the fonts cache if there are problems., but that requires yet another software app with no guarantee it will work.
I hate to try spending more money by trying the Google font system, but will if I have to.
For display lettering I more often than not use other apps, ArtText2, Pixelmator, even Text Edit to set up my type formatting. Those apps show all of my fonts which are installed on my computers.
For the display type using the typefaces that I referred to (Art Text2 and Pixelmator) I just import a .png image, I know it will work even though they can be 100kb in size. But no fuss, no muss, it just works.
Often I can directly cut and paste text from Text Edit and it works well in Hype’s text editor. But not always.
What am i missing? have been through the documentation. Give me your experience, is the Google program worth a try?
