symbol font not working

I have a project that I've inherited. It used the Symbol font. I see that it does not show up on Mac or PC. It does however work fine in Illustrator. 

 

Is there a reason for this? I can't find a workaround

 Hi David329107447quo!

Sorry to hear that. Which version of After Effects are you using? Does it happen with a specific font? 

Let us know.

 

Thanks,

KR

Hi

The font is Symbol as mentioned in the subject. I believe it's a system font. This works fine in Illustrator and Photoshop

I have just tried and you're right, it's not displaying for me either.

 

My replication steps:

  • Added a new text layer
  • Typed some text to ensure I could view it.
  • Selected the text
  • In the character panel, set the font to Symbol.

I assume this is a bug, so either you have to repost or contact a moderator to change the tag on your original post.  I'll try contacting the mods too.

This is already in the bug thread, so hopefully it gets treated as such
