Hi PD lovers!

I stucked with hopefully easy problem, maybe you can help me?

I installed some Helvetica Neue fonts: Thin, Light etc, but when I later open my PD (or Word doc), I dont see all installed fonts.

Control panel> Fonts I see some of them, like Bold and Light, but not Thin. In PD I see only Helvetica Neue 2x (but as one is bold, probably this one is Bold font). thats all!

When I do a new installation, Windows says me, The Helvetica Neue Thin font is already installed, do you want to replice it?

I did restart, nothing happened.

I googled to find solution, nothing too.

Maybe font's headline is so long, that PD font box doesnt show the full name? it can be, but I have installed 3 fonts, Bold, Light and Thin. Where is the 3rd one? and I dont see the 3rd one in font folder too, even when program says me, it should be there



Do I do something wrong?

hey, what's up doc?

PD uses the fonts that are installed in the directory of C:\Windows\Fonts

just copy and paste works, too.



happy happy joy joy

Hi Andres -

You're not the first person to have issues with Helvetica Neue! There are dozens of forums littered with users having problems... just google "Helvetica Neue issues"...

Here, I get the same as you in PDR & Word. I think it's something to do with the way the font family is formatted. I don't know if yours is a free font or paid for. Mine was a freebie.

There's a free alternative you may be interested in... and it won't give you the same grief. First up, look how similar Helvetica is to Arial. The last two, below, are like Helvetica Neue Thin.



If you're interested you can get Source Sans Pro here. All the variants are shown separately in PDR & Word.

Cheers - Tony
