      I’m using ActivInspire on a Mac (OS X 10.10) and using some Typekit fonts locally that have font weights (E.g. Museo 500, 700, 900, 1000 etc.) Is there some way I can access those different weights in ActivInspire? It appears I can only access the basic face, plus the usual “bold” option.

      Hi Jeff, 
      We are looking at a few things where Mac fonts don’t seem to translate well into ActivInspire. 
      Sub-categorised fonts is one of these. We have found that imported fonts do not seem to behave this way, so I don’t know if you have the option to re-import this font? 
      Please note that ActivInspire is not yet supported under Yosemite, but we are also hoping to remedy this as soon as possible.

      Thanks for the reply! I haven’t run into “imported fonts” before, I don’t think. What have I missed?

      Without being able to recommend a specific link:  Run a quick google search on “installing Mac Fonts ” and “download Museo Font for Mac”.  That should provide you with specific instructions on how to manually install a font and the process of downloading the font separately and installing it should hopefully provide a work-able workaround until we can resolve this from within Inspire.

      Oh, no—I see. I’m sure that’s not the problem. It’s an Adobe thing, handled through Creative Cloud, so it’s as installed as it gets. I thought you were alluding to a way to specifically/specially install fonts inside ActivInspire, kind of like embedding in a PDF or Flash! 😉 It’s fine the way it is, for now—I just miss having access to my extra-extra bold faces!
