Frutiger "A" cut off?!?
on Feb 13, 2010 at 12:54:30 am

I'm really not sure what is causing this problem. The letter "A" in my Frutiger font is getting cut off in FCP and AE and Motion. It shows up fine in Linotype FontExplorer and Word. It is in PostScript format if that makes a difference.

Here is an example http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2056709/Picture%204.png

Anyone have any ideas?

In Fontbook, validate the font.

I couldn't install it with Font Book and it won't show up in it. I had to install it using Linotype FontExplorer.

Then I'd sub in another font- if you can get it to install with Fontbook probably not going to be happy in Motion.

I have to use Frutiger. Client brand. It's purchased from Adobe so there's nothing wrong with the font itself.

Well then I'd check in with them- perhaps you have the wrong version for Mac OS X.

Is it a TrueType font? Open Type? You may need to convert it.

I know this is an old thread, but I just had the same problem with ITC Avante Garde Bold, and have just now solved it in Motion 4, so thought I'd better share it just in case others are pulling their hair out like I was!

I downloaded the font in Open Type format (.otf), unzipped the file, then installed it using Fontbook. I then converted it online to a True Type format (.ttf). Here's where the problem is - you've got two versions of the same font on the computer, and when I typed the word 'COMMUNICATION' in Motion, the ends of the 'C's were cut off!

To solve it, open Fontbook, find the font, right click and select 'Validate Font', as Mark suggests above. Check the box next to the .otf version, and click 'Remove Checked' at the bottom of that window. Then open up Motion again, and your font should work. At least mine did!
