As a graphic designer, having the right fonts is essential for creating visually appealing designs. However, sometimes the fonts you’ve downloaded might not show up on your computer. This can be frustrating, especially if you need to use a specific font for a project. In this blog post, we will discuss a solution to this problem for Windows users.
The issue is demonstrated in the video where the graphic designer has installed a font but cannot find all the variations of the font. Even after restarting the program, the regular version of the font is missing. It might seem like the font was not installed correctly, but that is not the case.
To fix this issue, the solution is to create a new folder and add the missing fonts manually. First, go to the C drive or the location where Adobe is installed. Then, go to Program Files, Common Files, and Adobe. Create a new folder named “Fonts” and move the downloaded fonts to this folder. If you already have a font folder prepared, you can move that instead.
After moving the fonts to the new folder, you might not see them right away. To make them appear, close the program and re-open it. If the regular version of the font is still missing, close the program again and try reopening it. If this solution does not work, you might need to restart your computer.
In conclusion, downloaded fonts not showing up can be a headache for designers using Windows, but it is not an unsolvable problem. By following the steps mentioned above, you can get your missing fonts to show up and use them for your project.
