FCP won't add font

I'm doing some pretty basic text stuff in FCP. A client sent me the font they use for most everything. It's a ttf. It worked in After Effects, but FCP doesn't list it. I restarted, still doesn't show. Any ideas?

The basic FCP text editor has a number of issues, the boris 3D text video generator is a much more flexible texr editor that accesses fonts in a different way that can let you use it natively.

I tried Borus; it seems to recognize the font, as it's in the list, but it shows up as just a generic font when I select it. It doesn't seem to show the font.

Actually, I'm wrong. Boris doesn't recognize it, either. I added the font to all of the font folders, and it's a .ttf.

According to this article How to Install Fonts on a Macintosh - It's Super Easy
you may have a Windows TrueType, apparently (it says here) they are not cross-compatable with Mac.
