This has been happening for a couple of years at least. I use a lot of Adobe fonts in my work. About half the time Dorico starts a project and claims it cannot find Alegreya font, for one, when it is definitively and provably installed on my system.
Usually I can fix it by reinstalling the Adobe font (Creative Cloud subscription) but this is tedious in the extreme. Sometimes a reboot fixes it.
What would cause this, and what diagnostics are there to troubleshoot this?
Windows 10 and Windows 11 Insider Preview. Dorico 4 and 5.
@benwiggy Come to think of it, you are right. Maybe I will try changing font. Perhaps there is something subtly wrong with it that Dorico does not like - at least on my system. I am not totally wedded to Alegreya in any case.
I looked up Alegreya and I see the family has 6 weights. When a font or paragraph style is based on another +bold, Dorico will complain if it doesn’t find a bold weight mapped that way. Check through your styles and try redefining any boldface ones with the specific weight you want via the font menu, removing the +bold attribute.
With Adobe, sometimes I’ve had a problem if I hadn’t logged in for a while. It also seems to randomly deactivate fonts, even those I use daily, or switch them to the “Click here to install for non-Adobe apps” installation. Andro, I would double-check that you’ve actively logged in recently and the correct toggles are switched on.
As long as the above settings are fine, I’ve never had an issue with Dorico finding CC fonts. OTOH, Finale’s font handling with these is a mess!
No, I am using the Adobe fonts font. I am fully activated and double checked. With my Adobe CC subscription I have never seen an option to install for non-Adobe apps. What is that about? Seems strange. I am on Windows 11, not that I imagine that makes any difference.
Also, there is no option to choose a font ‘Alegreya Bold’. Yes, it is on the system, but it presents in all apps as Alegreya, and then you select bold style. Same with italic and so on.
