Then there's something wrong with the font.

I am a not a Support engineer, and this forum is not a substitute for Support. My participation on this forum is primarily as a fellow user (and a forum moderator). I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally. I am not able to answer private messages, emails, or phone calls unless they go through proper Support channels. Please direct any sales or pricing questions to your salesperson or inquiries@marcom.com.

Complex template-building questions, as well as all installation and font questions or problems, should be directed to FusionProSupport@marcom.com. Paid consulting work may be required to fulfill your template-building needs.

Please include the specific versions of FusionPro, Acrobat, and your operating system in any problem reports or help requests. I recommend putting this information in your forum signature. Please also check your composition log (.msg) file for relevant error or warning messages.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

I thought that too, but I think the issue is with my FusionPro. This is at least the tenth font that either isn't uploading or isn't working correctly in FusionPro. I have worked with support & not found a resolution yet. I may need to uninstall then install again & hope that works. Thanks for all the help

Well, if the font doesn't show up correctly in native macOS applications like Mail and TextEdit, then it seems that it's not being handled properly by the operating system. So I'm not sure why FusionPro should be expected to deal with it any better than Apple does. Perhaps you're using an old version of the font, in which case there may be a newer version that works better with newer operating systems.

If there are other fonts that are not working, you should see whether those work in other apps as well. If they don't, then I have to say the same thing about them as above. If they do work in other apps but not in FusionPro, then we definitely want to investigate that. Information needed to diagnose the problem correctly includes the exact versions of FusionPro and the operating system you're running.

At any rate, if you can get the character you want, in the font you want, to show up in any other application, you should be able to copy and paste it from there into the Text Editor in FusionPro, and use the "Suppress if containing empty variables" setting with it, and not have to write any JavaScript.

I don't have any errors in the font message, which is why I am thrown off. I just uninstalled/reinstalled FusionPro, so I am hopeful that will fix things.
