Zehnder, looking at your screenshot, HelveticaNeue LT Pro is showing up in Photoshop. 6th font from the one you've highlighted in the screenshot.Choose that first. Then, to its right, where it shows 'Regular', you'll be able to change it to Roman, Bold, Black, Italic, etc...

Photoshop lists all fonts that are present in 'Fonts' folder in Windows.

If PS is not listing some fonts:

  • Either those fonts are not located in 'Fonts' folders (Windows keeps it in a secret statsh as they're proprietary to Windows 7)
  • One or more of those fonts are corrupt. Adobe doesn't list corrupt fonts. In fact, often times Photoshop hangs when you have one or more corrupt/ invalid font registries on your system. Scan for corrupt fonts and remove them

Can you post the 'fonts' that are 'missing', so we can see if they have any associated known issues with Photoshop?

Just the names.

Well another thing I've noticed with few fonts - the canonical names of the fonts will be something like '_VW Light' but the actual font name may be 'Volkswagen Light'. In this case, Photoshop wont show the font as VW Light but as Volkswagen Light. Have you tried this out?

HelveticaNeue is not a Windows native font. But anyway, it will show up in Photoshop as one typeface - 'Helvetica Neue'. Subtypes will show up as 'Bold, Black, Light, Roman'.

This is one of my personal favorites and I use it all the time without any hassles.

Can you open Photoshop and take a screenshot of the 'menu bar' with the font listing beginning with 'He...'?

On the other hand, can you try placing a copy of these fonts in here to see if that works?

Program Files (x86) > Common Files > Adobe > Fonts

Put them in x64 if you're running Photoshop as 64bit.

Hi Zehnder69,

The forum you posted your original question in is brand new and I think we can get more attention to your problem if I move this thread to the Photoshop General Discussion forum. I'm pretty sure that someone in that forum will be able to help you.

Hello,

In my photoshop cc 2019, 6 fonts out of 8 from the Helvetica neue familhy is missing. Only two fonts of this font family showing up in the right hand option. I checked if it exits separately, but they aren't found. Any fix to this?

This is true!!

As I was reading your comment, I realized the same problem too.

Photoshop doesn't display the actual names of the fonts as they are in the "Windows Fonts Folder". I think Adobe should take this seriously into their consideration.

I had the same problem with the "Monotype Corsiva" font.

I couldn't find it in Photoshop because of this exact reason.

I was searching on the Letter "M" to find the Monotype, but after I tried to Type: "Corsiva" instead, and to my Surprise it was listed under the font "Coronet". It was listed with the full name of the font: "Monotype Corsiva".

This is very weird... I don't know why.Photoshop forum about FONTA.PNG

THANK YOU! I could not believe Monotype Corsiva would not be in PhotoShop, but it was certainly not there under M! You've stopped me from spending obsessive days trying to figure out the mystery.
