Font Not Recognized

  • Problem
  • Updated 4 months ago
Just upgraded to C2018, recently. Quicksand Book is installed, but not recognized when adding Annotations (I think it's defaulting to Montserrat). The font selector says it's Quicksand Book, but it's definitely not showing up as such. Other versions of Quicksand (Bold, Bold Oblique, Book Oblique, Dash, and Light) work fine: it's just Quicksand Book that's not working. Any advice or solutions? -Thanks

If the Font is OTF. Use an online converter to convert the font to TTF from OTF. 
Install it as a TTF font. Restart Camtasia. Some OTF fonts are problematic.

@michaelvx2008 try installing TTF files with the "Install for all users" option, and restart your computer. That's what did the trick for me.

UPDATE: I figured, I would add to this response instead of creating a new one. I check out another .tscproj file and Quicksand Book is working in there. It just seems to be the one file. Any ideas?

Thanks Joe! Just put in a request with my IT department to install the latest Camtasia update, and the TTF file. I'll let you know in a week or two if it works out.
