Help with using a specific opentype font
0

Hi there!
I really hope this is the right forum to post the question in. I have a font called Skitch from Yellow Design. I have installed all 11 variations but only some of the are available in Photoshop. For example the Skitch fill version doesn't show. I am quite new at using an opentype font like that. I tried to look in the character sub menu in Photoshop but that didn't help. They show so many nice options on their site but I can't access them. F.ex how do you stretch the borders like that when they consist of two characters?
Here are some links

Thanks!

I wouldn't try to do anything with type in Photoshop. In InDesign, you can use the OpenType menu and Glyphs palette to access all the characters you want.

JL: - I agree about Photoshop, but Lililoo's problem is that some font files themselves aren't appearing. My guess is that there are some internal naming conflicts in the Skitch family. - Herb

I don't know how to work in Indesign but thanks for the tip!

I will look for an answer to the naming conflict problem. They are in the fonts folder but I can/t see them. When I try to install them again I get a message saying they are already installed. Thanks!

Best contact the studio directly to see if they are aware of this problem

Try it again with the font files placed in the specific Adobe-folder (Library:Application Support:Adobe:Fonts). Adobe is somewhat more lenient using non-standard font (types) than OS X.
