    1. Perhaps there is an explanation for why some users have them work and others do not?
      It may depend on which fonts you purchase.

      All of them are installed to “C:\Program Files\WindowsApps”.
      Some of them (not all) are also copied to “C:\Windows\Fonts” when installed.

      Arial Nova, Georgia Pro, Gill Sans Nova, Ink Draft, Rockwell Nova, Verdana Pro are copied to the Fonts folder, but Buxton Sketch, Convection, Ink Journal, Nina, and Segoe Marker are not.

      I expect that many apps will only see the fonts that are copied to the Fonts folder.
      This might be a bug in the installation packages?
