Using installed font in subtitles [Premiere Pro 2020]

I'm having an issue with a specific font (Ideal Sans) that I have to use for a client. I installed the font and can use it in regular text boxes, both in Premiere Pro and other applications such as After Effects, but I can't get it to work in the Open Captions function. Other external/installed fonts works just fine, and Ideal Sans does show up as an option in the drop-down list, but PP seems to replace it with the standard caption-font. 

 

Thanks!

Not all fonts work equally well in open captions.

Do you need it burned it or as a side car file.

If its the former use the Ess. Graphics?

The subtitles must be burned in. I already made the subs in open captions, but the client then decided that I had to use their brand font, which is why I would prefer to just change the font in stead of re-doing them as graphics. 

But if the issue is that their font simply isn't supported as captions, there's no other option than to pour myself a big cup of coffee and make some new subs using the text tool.

I'm not where I can access my notes. Do a search for after effects caption scripts. You should find an option to take a sidecar file and create the text.

 

If you don't have very many captions, go with the coffee!
