I have some fonts also only in that category, like Triplicate. I see
it in DrRacket, but only if I choose "Other..." in the font selection
dialog. Does your font show up there?

Relatedly, does it show up in the output of this program?

>>> I ask because there are a few fonts I’ve installed that aren’t showing up as options in DrRacket’s font menus. I believe this is because I’ve installed them as user fonts — not system-wide fonts — and DrRacket is installed in the system’s Applications folder...but I’m not sure. I don’t see much info about font choice in the DrR docs (aside from the documentation on font%, font-list%, etc. — which seems off base and overcomplicated for this question).
