    has anyone else experienced this in fontexplorer Pro? It only happens when importing certain fonts. Some fonts are placed into the "No Family Name" group. These fonts display and print correctly without a problem, its just bizarre. If anyone knows of a fix then please let us know.

    There is nothing bizarre about it. Some foundry's do not properly setup the typeface family name. You have three choices:
    1. Buy a type editor and do the job yourself.
    2. Contact the foundry and perhaps it will correct its mistake and save you the money.
    3. Live with it.

    The strange thing is with two of my fonts (I forget which ones) they were put in the correct family the first time I imported them. I had to delete them and re-import, and thats when they went into the 'no family name' group. Thats what prompted me to consider there might be something else to this.

    Does this happen frequently to many other people?

    How did you "delete" the fonts?
