Individual Faces of Font Families Do Not Display in Fonts Sub-menu on Windows
Modified on: Wed, 14 Jun, 2017 at 5:37 AM
Legacy behavior for Windows (in the Windows Font Family View) has been to build fonts with four faces. Therefore, no font sub-menus are normally displayed, and individual faces of a font are accessed by clicking on the 'B' or 'I', etc. in the Measurements palette.
There is a third party XTension, developed by JoLauterbach Software GmbH(http://www.jolauterbach.com/products/typox.htm), called TypoX that provides a secondary palette that has a font menu that will alert you if you have applied a faux style to a font. With this XTension loaded, you will see a blank entry if you have applied a faux style. Otherwise you will see a font name listed.
