Weird font problem

Hey

I'm trying to use a font that has many styles, light, light alt, bold, regular, regular alt etc.

I have all the font files in my font folder but for some reason in InDesign and photoshop only the regular font loads.

When I open the fonts in font book, they are all listed as regular. I think it's just picking up them as regular and just using the top font in the software.

Even weirder, if i delete all the font from the font folder, then add, say, only the light font to my font folder, this is the one that shows up in the software. But if i add more than one, only one font appears.

I have tried using font Studio to change the regular to light etc etc but it does nothing.

Please help!!!

Problems of this sort are often associated with just one font. Is this a general problem with all such font families or is it specific to just one such font families? If the problem is specific to just one font family, then which font family is it?

Have you tried a different font management program? Sometimes that can make a difference too.

The idea of using some distinctive font management applications always looks worthy!
