opened two seperate files and its still not recognising the font weight, instead leaves font name completely blank
uninstalled full adobe suite including settings
updated mac OS
reinstalled adobe suite
reinstalled all offending fonts
also tried TTF and OTF versions of the fonts
Issue still occurring despite all this troubleshooting.
If you "also" tried TTF and OTF, then what kind of font is that one? There's not a lot of font formats left.
Illustrator doesn't support T1 anymore.
