The trick to installing India DV Fonts into Live Type
on Jun 22, 2003 at 9:45:18 pm

I haven't heard from Apple yet on the problems we've encountered installing the old fonts, but in fooling around, I discovered the trick. It seems that LT wont read a folder of fonts if the fonts are contained in folders of their own. In other words, If you install a folder named India Fonts at the same level as the Pro Series folder, and that India Fonts folder contains the folders Artistic, Caricature, Chance, etc. Nothing gets read. You will only see Pro Series at the requester pull down on the media manager. If you put the folder Artistic (which contains the .afp's and the QT movies and no other internal folders) in the Live Fonts folder with Pro Series folder, Artistic appears on the pull down. I guess Live Type is locked into their pathname scheme and it won't allow looking at deeper levels. So until I get a response from higher up (call it an epiphany) this will have to do. It does work, though.
