I took a screenshot of a font loaded into FontBook that I'm having trouble with, April-Skyline.

If you notice in the screenshot, there is a "dash" or "hyphen" in front of the font name. The other fonts do not have this dash in front of their name.
Whenever I load a font, and see this dash, I immediately know that the font will not show up in any of my program menus even though it "appears" in Font Book. The other fonts that have no dash/hyphen all appear in my menus and work correctly. This font was created in 91.

What I have discovered - If a font has a dash/hyphen (-) in the font name, then Font Book will always put a dash in
front of the fonts name in the Font Book list. I wonder if the font name has anything to do with my problem.
Its almost as if having a dash in the orginal font name causes problems with Font Book.

Anybody familiar with this weird issue?

For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
