Can't see added fonts

I am a brand new FontBase user and I have just installed FB v2.20.7 on my iMac 5K running MacOS 14.3 Sonoma.

I created a new Collection called OpenTypes and added a few fonts by dragging them on to the Collection name. I can see the fonts have been added to the FontBase folder in my Users folder but I cannot see them in the FontBase app window at all.

I tried again with another Collection called TrueTypes and the same happened again, the fonts are not visible in FontBase but I can see them in the folder.

What can I do to make these visible in the FontBase window?


Hello @Printdevil, thank you for your post and welcome to the forum :pray:
Did you drag the fonts from your File Explorer application into the FontBase window?
Were the fonts outside of the Root Folder? (right-click the “FOLDERS” section title to navigate to your Root Folder location). Adding fonts in this way from within the Root Folder wouldn’t work.
Thank you again,

Aah thanks Yurly, I didn’t realise the fonts needed to be in the FontBase folder, all seems to be working now.
