Although this specific issue might have been solved meanwhile by the helpful suggestions of Wolfang, Thomas and others, I would like to point out that I have recently also encountered an odd behaviour of the mtxrun fontloader in the standalone, in which not all typefaces are available/properly identified.
(I’m sorry to hijack this thread if this is unrelated.) Basically, when I load “Helvetica Neue”, I get instead of “regular/normal” always “light/italic”. I have switched to heros for the meantime, but potentially there is some bug behind this. (My documents with the version from Dec/Jan worked fine.) I recite my example from Wed: ConTeXt ver: 2020.01.30 14:13 MKIV beta fmt: 2020.4.22 (LuaTeX 1.11.1) and I’m running now into troubles with system font indexing: mtxrun --script fonts --reload locates fonts in macOS directories appropriately (*.afm fonts placed in .../tex/texmf-fonts are not found, but at the moment I don’t care too much), however it resolves only to a single font variant for *.ttc instead of all variants: mtxrun --script fonts --list --all --pattern=helvetica helvetica helvetica helveticalightoblique /System/Library/Fonts/Helvetica.ttc 6 helveticalightoblique helvetica helveticalightoblique /System/Library/Fonts/Helvetica.ttc 6 helveticaneuedeskinterfaceheavy helveticaneuedeskinterface helveticaneuedeskinterfaceheavy /System/Library/Fonts/HelveticaNeueDeskInterface.ttc 10 helveticaneuethinitalic helveticaneue helveticaneuethinitalic /System/Library/Fonts/HelveticaNeue.ttc 14 As a consequence, when I run \definefontfamily[mainface][ss][Helvetica Neue] \setupbodyfont[mainface, 12pt, sans] I get the light oblique variant instead of the regular one. I have tried to fix this via a \definefontfamily[mainface][ss][Helvetica Neue][tf=style:normal] but apparently I understand too little about this setup altogether … Thanks already for any suggestions! > On 24 Apr 2020, at 08:53, ntg-context-requ...@ntg.nl wrote: > > Send ntg-context mailing list submissions to > firstname.lastname@example.org > > To subscribe or unsubscribe via the World Wide Web, visit > https://mailman.ntg.nl/mailman/listinfo/ntg-context > or, via email, send a message with subject or body 'help' to > ntg-context-requ...@ntg.nl > > You can reach the person managing the list at > ntg-context-ow...@ntg.nl > > When replying, please edit your Subject line so it is more specific > than "Re: Contents of ntg-context digest..." > Today's Topics: > > 1.
