Duplicated font issues within Windows 10

Hi there,

I have a problem where an AE file is automatically activating Open Sans Semi bold from Adobe fonts.  I already have all the open sans installed locally and so when I open my AE file, all the semi-bold text is resorting to Times New Roman meaning I have to change all the fonts every time I open it.

 

I've tried resaving the file having specified the local version, then deactivated the open sans in adobe fonts, but whatever I do, when I reopen the issue remains and the font is reactivated.

 

It appears to be the opensans at the bottom of the list (see attached) that is Adobe one but why is it there and why is it not noted as Semi-bold if that is the one activated?

AE appears to be looking at Adobe fonts to activate fonts, before searching your system. Have you considered uninstalling Open Sans from your system and just using the Adobe font version of it?

That's done the trick, thanks.

 

I'm just wondering if there is a way to stop this in the future.  I'm often using projects from other artists and if I have the fonts on my machine, but they have used Adobe fonts, I'll have to go through this everytime.
