Shorten font family name

I’m trying to shorten a font’s name from Storyteller Sans Extra Condensed to STSans ExCd (in order it to work properly in Windows).

I’ve renamed the font family and the styles (using both Custom field in the masters tab and Style Name in the Instance tab - not sure which one is the right one to use) and added the following parameters:

  • preferredFamilyName (set to Storyteller Sans in Font tab) ;
  • preferredSubfamilyName (set to Extra Condensed in both Masters tab
    and Instances tab).

The problem is that in all applications I’m seeing the short version STSans ExCd.

What am I doing wrong?

I’ve figured :smile:
these parameters need to be placed in the Instances tab… all works now
