fonts missing in package folder

When I open an InDesign document in Bridge, I see the list of fonts used. When I package the file in InDesign, and look in the fonts folder, some of the fonts are missing (although there were no problems with the fonts in the package report). Why are they missing in the fonts folder created by packaging?

    Which InDesign version? Are you updated to the latest version? What platform? Does this happen only with certain fonts? On every packaging project?

    Use Find Font in the Type menu to find which fonts are used where.

    One very likely possibility is that the missing fonts are fonts that are already embedded in EPS or PDF files that you have placed in your InDesign document. Such fonts are typically listed in the instructions.txt file produced during the packaging operation but don't appear in the fonts subdirectory. Such fonts appear in the font list as having status: embedded.
