I think you need the Italic version of that font - you just have the Regular and Bold font files apparently. With old Adobe Type 1 fonts, for example, there were multiple separate files for each "font" set that needed to be available.
For example, my old "Helvetica", "Helvetica-Black" and "Helvetica-Narrow" fonts are these - with oblique, bold and bold-oblique versions. And there are the associated files font metric files (AFM, PFM) and font info files (INF) for each of these, in sub-directories, for the system to read.

You may also need the Bold-Italic (or Bold-Oblique) version files too. Z Tammy Van Boening wrote: ? All, ? A client is insisting on using a proprietary font in the source FM files despite my best attempts to keep them vanilla with Times New Roman and Arial. They have supplied me with two font sets for this font - one is Regular weight (to be used for any paragraph tags that are non-Heading tags) and a Bold weight (to be used for any paragraph tags that are Heading tags). I have several character formats in my catalog that I want to be able to continue to use. One of these tags is Emphasis. All properties for the tag are set to As Is with the exception of the angle, which I have set to Italic. ? When I apply this tag to any paragraph tags that are non-Heading tags (i.e., the tags use the regular weight version of this proprietary font), the tag is apparently not applied. The font angle does not change, and in the lower left corner of the page identifying what tags are being used, I see Emphasis with an asterisk in front of it (*Emphasis). I thought that maybe I had corrupted the tag somehow, so I applied the same tag to some text that used simply good old Times New Roman font in the same document, and voila, the text was immediately italicized and the tag showed Emphasis without an asterisk. ? I have not really ever had to use proprietary fonts before in a FM source file, so I am obviously missing something behind the use of such fonts that is preventing character tags from being applied as expected. ? Any guidance/assistance is greatly appreciated. ? Regards, ? TVB
