I have a font issue that occurs now and then.
First, I use Adobe illustrator 2023 (isssue also occurs at 2022 version).
I use Creative Cloud All aps.
Apple MacbookPro M1 Pro
macOS Monterey 12.2
Issue happens with multiple fonts.
Now I work with the Adobe Fonts (Online acctivation) Effra, the whole family.
When I want to change the font to to bold, medium etc and also when I change the corps, visually nothing changes/happens with the selected text.
I only can see the change when I make an outline and then command-z.
See screenshots when I decrease the font. Visualy it remanins its size.
After making font outline I see what I changed.
PhotoA: The current situation.
PhotoB: I decrease corps 12 to 9. The outline shows it decreased but visualy nothing happend.
PhotoC: Only when I make an outline the change is visible.
Does anybody know what this happens?
CPU/GPU change does not have any effect.
Did you try things like restart your machine, reset preferences?
Yes, i restarted my mac and also reset all preferences, I forgot to tell.
First, after the reset, the problem seemed gone, but later it occurs again.
But it can't be I have to reset the settings all the time. After resetting I have to set my own preferences back again.
Yes, resetting preferences is a pain (you may want to backup some files before doing that: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/setting-preferences.html ).
But if it happens with other fonts too, it is not normal behaviour. Are you having font management software running?
Yes I have, FontExplorer X Pro 7
FontExplorer X Pro 7 seems to have stopped developing. What happens if you turn it off?
I also tryed that.
When Fontexplorer is off the problem stays.
Strange I can not find others with the same problem.
