    How to package complete font families?

    For Windows!

    when I open a design program and use the text tool, I down a sub menu appears showing me the fonts "Ligh - Normal - Bold - Etc" from a specific font, this happens almost every time I install a complete family.

    But sometimes when you installed the complete family is not packaged, ie submenu contains nothing, and to go through an example of "Light to Bold" have to go to a different source, which are not within the same family .

    This is very annoying for me. Do you know how I can package any complete family? or more forms of the same font name.

    Example Windows Panel of Control.


    I think it is called layered font families.

    I hope you can help me.

    This happens when a font does not contain the information townhalls and the font family to which it belongs, to fix it you have to use a font editor program and to place the name of the family to which it belongs, to know which family belongs only have you see them from myfonts, this problem happens to rip fonts.

    i think it depends how the font distributor likes to treat his fonts!

    best way is to group them in a font-managment software, sometimes this does the trick for the CS-Suite but sometimes you have to edit the fonts themselfs (which is not so recomended, but if you like your font-menue clean)

    How can this be done in OSX?

    I have FontExplorer X Pro, and though it's perfect to review in a one-by-one style with the WYSIWYG button, I haven't found how to "layer" them nor in FEXPro, nor in illustrator. Anybody knows how to?.

    I wish I could do like Vignelli and only use a dozen, but...there are so many good fonts.
