fonts not available

Mar 18, 2013 3:01 PM

Hello Everyone,


I am trying to export a file from Indesign cs6 to a pdf and I keep getting a error saying the following fonts aren't  avaiable. However I have those fonts loaded and dont get any missing font errors when I open the indsign file. Even when it gives me the option to replace the fonts it doesn't show the missing fonts as missing. Does any one know why this might be? Here is a screen shot of the error

I am using Indesign cs6 on mac 10.6.8Screen shot 2013-03-18 at 3.53.56 PM.png

    Can you show us the Find Font dialog, too?

    I have had similar situation once or twice. I got it solved by using Replace With tool, I simply replaced problem font with itself. My guess is that there was two fonts with same name in my system, InDesign mapped the font to wrong one.


    If that doesn´t help, trashing preferences may be worth trying. It has sometimes solved problems that I would never had believed it could solve.

    I solved a similar problem by saving the InDesign file as IDML. It stripped the phantom fonts and I didn't have the problem when I opened it in InDesign.
