I just purchased a font from Adobe (Avenir 55 Roman) and downloaded it on my mac.  When I move it to my font folder, it only partially shows on the preview and when I try using it.  Is there something I need to do??  Any help is appreciated!

I cannot find Avenir Roman 55. Is this an older Postscript font or is this a Open Type font. From its name it appears to be a Postscript font.

Avenir Roman 55 is the Linotype designation, not Adobe's.

Hailey: I'm not sure what "only partially shows" means. Can you be more specific?

Michael: The OpenType version Adobe sells is "Avenir LT Std 55 Roman" while their PostScript Type 1 version is "Avenir 55 Roman" so it sounds like the Type 1 version is what you're looking for.

Cheers,

T
