font not found on system

Asked by jason white on 2011-06-06

I am trying to use the Celtic Garamond the 2nd font. I have installed it on windows 7 and it works fine for MS word but when I try to use it in inkscape it tells me " font not found on system" It shows the font in the drop down menu and will let me select it but won't display the font. I tried going through the text, text and font, menus it shows the font and let's me select it and even previews the correct font in the window but when I hit apply nothing happens.

Thanks for your time
Jason

Issue reproduced on Windows XP, Inkscape trunk revision 10258.
I'm not sure whether it's an bug in Inkscape or in the font (all the other fonts on my system work correctly).
A bug report that looks very close to your issue has already been reported (see https://bugs.launchpad.net/inkscape/+bug/209345 "font RomulanEagle not displayed correctly").

Can you help with this problem?
