Some fonts are not available in DaVinci Resolve's TEXT+. Is there a reason and how to deal with it?
The fonts that can be used with TEXT+ are the fonts in the folder set in "Fonts" of "Default" on the "Path Map" tab of [Fusion]-[Fusion Setting] on the Fusion page.
Also, in DaVinci Resolve, fonts can be used for text (TEXT) and subtitles, and all fonts that can be checked with the font management tool included with the OS can be used for these.
Fonts managed by the OS basically match those in the folder set in "Fonts" of "Default" in the "Path Map" tab of the Fusion page under [Fusion] - [Fusion Setting] However, it also includes fonts provided by subscription services such as mojimo.
As of December 2023, the following mojimo fonts cannot be used with "TEXT+".
Morisawa Fonts was also not available before, but will be available from November 2023. Mojimo fonts are managed independently by software provided by the manufacturer, and the font files cannot be checked from Explorer or Finder. (It is not clear, but it seems that it is managed differently from general fonts and is not managed in the form of a font file.It seems that the font can be checked from the OS via management software, It cannot be used with software that directly references font files, including DaVinci Resolve.)

The font used in the Evangelion series is provided by mojimo. This font is also applicable, so as of April 2023, it cannot be used with DaVinci Resolve TEXT+.
In addition, even if the font is not managed by the OS, if it can be confirmed as a font file in Explorer or Finder, it can be used with TEXT + (text +) by the method described in the following article.
