I have installed a font (makibafont) in Font Book however it is not available in Illustrator but it is available in Photoshop and other apps. The font validates ok but just not showing up in Illustrator. Any ideas what could be causing this? Thanks in advance.

This is a Japanese font, correct? Illustrator might be listing it under Japanese characters rather than as 'Makibafont'.

Thats a great tip. I have used Illustrator for many years and never realised that function...but I guess I have never had the need for it until now.
