Font Won't Change

Hi all:
I can see my custom font in the drop down options for Callouts, but when I select it, the font isn't changing. I've tried using several custom fonts we have installed, and even switching to some default fonts, but the actual font in the video doesn't change. Any suggestions? I am using Camtasia 2018.0.7. Thank you!

See Joe's recommendation here:
I haven't had to try the conversion, but it seems reasonable to me.

If your fonts are OTF type fonts well Camtasia doesn't like them and they simply won't work or will be weird.

Camtasia prefers TTF type fonts.

David's post to convert a OTF to a TTF is about all you can try to do but  note doesn't always work.
Doing a conversion isn't the same as the font being made by someone that knows how to create fonts.

The best thing you can do is to see if there is a TTF font in the style you want to use or one that will work as an alternative.
