A few days ago all of my fonts—both installed and activated—stopped appearing in the font-drop down menu in adobe illustrator and only adobe illustrator. They appear in both photoshop and in design, just not illustrator.
Attempting to preview installed/activated fonts
Attempting to preview Adobe Typekit fonts (yes creative cloud is on and active)
Can't see the font name of text I've selected, but I CAN see the secondary selection "Light Italic Caption". I can not however change from "light italic caption" to something else, even though this font has a variety of weights/styles
Fonts that are installed/activated appear as they're supposed to when working on an .ai file (image below is of activated/installed fonts rendering correctly on screen in an .ai file), I just can't select fonts at all from the drop down menu.

Adding to include i've also attempt to clear the adobe font caches (all fnt.lst files) to no avail.
Did this happen immediately after updating to Big Sur? Does this happen in Photoshop or any other apps? Guessing the is local to AI?
Try changing these settings

To reply to some of your questions:
I didn't get to try any of your suggestions because I managed to resolve the issue. I tried reinstalling illustrato one more time, and this time I deleted EVERYTHING from previous versions—a "complete" uninstall and reinstall with no downloaded brushes, no downloaded fonts, no preferences, no nuthin'. That worked. Idk which part specifically was causing the problem, but damn if that wasn't a massive headache to try to solve for. I don't think it was a preferences issue because I tried loading adobe illustrator while holding cmd + opt + shift to clear my preferences on start up, but I can't say for sure.
