I think, Finale is unable to use that font. You might delete the font, and install it again. Can you use it in other applications?

Firstly, update to Finale 25.3, if you haven't already. Free update, which may have bug fixes that help.

Secondly, as OCTO says: does the font work in other apps? Perhaps re-download it or restore from your Backup. It does seem to be a "reputable" typeface, so should work. Looks quite like Gill Sans.

I had similar problem with other font in Finale 2014.5. I tried to change font in text block, but Finale was still displaying Arial. I found that it happened only in some files, different files worked correctly.
