Mayday!! ID CS2 & fonts
I have been tearing my hair out all day over InDesign’s nutsyola way with fonts.
To begin with, I opened a PageMaker 7 file with InDesign. As I anticipated, even though the fonts were present and available and even though the text looked the way it had in PageMaker, all the fonts were shown as unavailable (pink). I selected each style, went into the dialog box, and set each style to the correct font. The text remained pink.
So then I selected each bit of text, clicked on the style. When that didn’t do the trick, I selected each range of text and then re-selected the font in the character palette. Then, finally, the pink went away and I felt secure about the fonts.
Hah! More fool I.
Go to print. Warning comes up — three of the fonts (out of 7) are not available. Huh? Not only can I see that the text on the screen is correctly styled but I can see the list of fonts in the character palette, and they are shown correctly.
So how do I fix this? Seems to me that once before I did it by selecting Flight Check and letting it walk me through it. But if so that is even wackier than all the rest of this process.
I must be doing something wrong. This thing is due at the printer now, and I dare not make a PDF if ID thinks the fonts are missing.
