Fonts in Illy CS6 on Mac

I need a glyph of a diamond shape to recreate a logo in Illy CS6, but none of my dingbat fonts work in Illy CS6 on Mac. I loaded the font into the Library/Application Support/Adobe/Fonts directory and they show up on the list, but with the caret parenthesis (like this: <ITC Zapf Dingbats>) like it's corrupt or something. I can use those fonts in InDesign without issue. I set the type in ID, exported to pdf, opened the pdf in Illy but it turned into this: (screenshot). Any ideas?

Obviously I can draw a square and rotate it 45 degrees... but I just want to figure this out.

If I open the glyph window in Illy, I can't change between fonts. It picks a default font (Myriad Pro) and won't let it be changed to anything else.

Maybe a reboot will "just fix" my Firefox issue.

I don't have any font utility so i usually just install the font in question on to my computer and restart Illy, 90% of the time it works every time.
