My font doesn't appear in word (mac) !

Hello everyone,
I've looked for a solution for this problem for almost 2 days. I usually don't write on forums because I always find someone who already had my problem and have a solution, but well, this is time is my time to have a problem unsolved.

I created a new typeface and installed it as .otf
and it works well on all my programs (on mac) : textedit, open office, indesign
but it doesn't work on word (macintosh).... -_- it doesn't even appear in the list of fonts
very strange thing, it does work on word (windows).
Edit : I also tried with .ttf (same problem)

I need to make it work on mac as well. Anyone already had this problem and know a solution ?

So, please,
Help ! :(

Thank you,

What's the filename, and does the FontInfo follow the basic word convention of Regular, Italic, bold, BoldItalic?

Wasn't there something weird with Word. where you have to manually say a font also "supports Greek"? From memory, but it did come up recently.

Hi and thank you for your help !

The name of the font is COHDA-Regular. It's a font made from pictograms for an visual identity.
I made it with Glyphs software. So, I've made only one version, the regular one.
How can I know if the FontInfo follow the word convention ?

I didn't have to change anything in word on my pc, it works well.
And I did try everything on my mac, including support of foreign languages. Still, the font doesn't even appear.

Also I gave the font to a friend to try it on another pc. He told me only the first line of his keyboard from A to P works. All the others letters of this font doesn't work.... ??????????

Thank you again for your help :)
