BookSmart

Different font weights not available

I bought a font family (10 versions of Museo Sans) to use in a book but despite a reboot all I see in Booksmart is a single generic "Museo Sans" font. No mention of its weight. and no way to access, for example, the very thin version. Any thoughts on what to do?

[Booksmart 3.4.3 on Win7 64bit]

This is an annoyance for me as well. There seems to be no way to get at the various weights, much less real italic and bold (the way BookSmart does italics and boldfaced type is state-of-the-art ca. 1985.) Sorry to have to be the one to break it to you.

Thanks James. I guess it has to do with how the font is packaged. I have Helvetica in different weights – and they show up correctly in Booksmart.  Maybe someone else has an idea?

I get a few seemingly-random weights of Helvetica, but only one generic Gill Sans, which is what I almost always use.
