When saving a family font s OTF or TTF in Fontlab Studio5 they work fine in all my MAC applications, but the same family does not fully show on the PC.
Some of the fonts are showing on the PC even though they've been uploaded, and it shows some of the other members of the family.

Is there any setting that I should change on Fontlab so they are compatible across both platforms?

It's probably the typical font naming problem. Follow this guide and it should work:

Also make sure the PANOSE information for all fonts within a font family match.

Ralf: ‘It's probably the typical font naming problem.

You could download the free OTM Light 2.0 version from here and post a screen dump of the ‘name’ table on this forum, like this (although preferably complete):

and, if applicable, also the CFF-one, like this:

And subsequently we all can have a look at it.
