Replaced font still appearing in missing fonts

Hi All,


In my FrameMaker template I was missing a font called "Palatino". I changed the font in the template to another font that is available with me.


I changed the font in every Paragraph tag and Character tag in the template. And did Global Update. I double checked everything.


I did it manually in one of the files and imported to the other files.


But in some of the book files, I am still getting the missing font alert for "Palatino". It is a mystry for me, where I am leaving some track of the old font. I am 100% sure the font do not appear in any of the Paragraph tags and Character tags in the template


Is there a way I can search for that font in the book files.


Please let me know. I quick help will be highly appreaciated.

    Font info is also stored here:

    • Stored table tags or in a deleted table title
    • In a left/right master page, if your document is single sided and you had deleted the master page of the other side
    • Master pages
    • Reference pages
    • Graphics files


    You can also open the MIF file (preferably with MIFBrowse: or in another text editor) and search for the font name.


    Or you can deactivate "Remember missing font names" in the Preferences and then open your file. FrameMaker will permanently replace Palatino with another font. Only if the font is used by a graphics file, FrameMaker will still try to find this font.


    Best regards

    Also, if you are using FrameMaker 10 or 11, you can open the Fonts pod,

    select the Palatino font, and then click the Replace button for a dialog

    that lets you permanently replace the font with a font of your choosing.
