    When using PageMaker, Bickley Script font (and some others) does not show up in my font dropdown list; however, I know it's installed on my system - I can select it in MS Publisher (so some applications see it, others don't).

    Curiously, if I type text in Publisher and then copy and paste into PageMaker, the font looks like it's supposed to (and will also print out OK), but the window showing the font name is blank. Any ideas on how to "see" the font name in PageMaker - it's very tedious to do the workaround.

    I'm using Windows XP, and font name shows up in the fonts folder; if I try to "install" the font, I get a message saying it's already installed....

    Thanks in advance.

    In PageMaker there is a document setup box and a "compose to printer" window. If that window shows "?DISPLAY on none", the fonts won't show. If I select an actual printer from the drop-down list, the fonts will display in the fonts list.

    I discovered this by visiting FAQ from a website to purchase and download fonts.
