I made a typeface using Fontlab 7 and exported to TTF. It's been installed and validated in my Font Book, and I still can't find it in Illustrator (or Word). I tried generating a new Adobe font file, didn't do anything. I've had no problems with other typefaces made using Fontlab, and I can use those in Illustrator. Any suggestions?

Having personally created by OpenType CFF and OpenType TTF fonts with FontLab 7, I can assure you that what you are experiencing is not true of all fonts created with FontLab 7.

 

One possibility is that the character set used in your font is triggering Adobe applications to list  your font separately, perhaps at the end of font list, just as these application font do for fonts with non-Western Latin character sets (such as symbolic fonts, Hebrew or Arabic fonts, etc.).

 

If that isn't the case, if you really want advise here, you might want to point us to the font such that it can be examined.
