Unable to view all fonts installed on the computer


Not all installed Adobe fonts are listed in the ArcMap font list.

For example, the following Univers OpenType fonts are installed:
[O-Image] List of installed Univers fonts
However, ArcMap displays only the following Univers fonts:
[O-Image] List of installed Univers fonts as shown in ArcMap


In some cases with Adobe PostScript and OpenType fonts, the entire font family does not appear in the font list in any Windows application although they are accessible with the font formatting buttons.

Solution or Workaround

To access the missing fonts, select the base font and click the Bold and/or Italic button.

For example, select 'Univers LT Std 73 Black Ext' and click the Italic button to use the font 'Univers Std 63 Bold Extended Oblique'.
