Hi,
Any ideas on why a supplied Illustrator file shows the correct font weight (bold) in Preview but a different weight (light) when opened in Illustrator?

The font is installed with no errors.
Thanks...

Illustrator opens the Illustrator part of the file (if it is the correct Illustrator version).

Preview shows the PDF part.

Whar happens if you open the file in Acrobat?

The fonts in question show correctly. (Titles)
The body copy font has squares where spaces should be.

You are opening a pdf.

Was it created in Illustrator?

If so was it saved with AI editability?

Was it saved from the same version as you are using to open the file?

Which version of Illustrator are you using?

 

Also, can you share a sample .ai file, so one may have a look at it?
