Garamond doesn't seem to be a system font in my version of macOS (10.14.2)

What kind of font is this ? PS, TTF, OpenType ?

@Paolo : forget it, this is a duplicate of bug 69254, as yet not completely fixed.

Can you provide the actual font family for examination?

It could just be a issue with the fonts.
Often an easily fixable issue.

If you cannot provide the fonts, the source, vendor, version would be useful.

I have tested quite a few different garamond families and flavors from different sources and vendors without any issues.
So I am curious what is wrong with yours.

Bug 69254 is not a grab page for all font enumeration bugs on macOS. The bug here seems more specific, but we need to know the actual font being used (Garamond is a too generic name) to be able to debug it.

The problem is solved.
Font Garamond Monotype Regular
