There's a fairly strong chance the font is damaged and not usable for
DTP / prepress jobs. I think I've run into issues with Zapf Chancery before.

If you start Scribus with the --console command line argument (either
using start->run or by modifying the shortcut) it should list any fonts
it rejects.
