I need help with Fonts. Just had my computer updated w/ OS Window 7. Using Adobe products: ID CS5.5, AI, PSD, Acrobat.
Anyway, yep, having issues with my old Type 1 fonts. TT and OTF, most of them installed and display properly. However, all the fonts that I have been using for years, dumped out. I went to the Web to search info in Microsoft Office, etc., used some advice regarding pasting the T1 fonts to Program filesx86…, and it did help with making some of fonts display properly, but not all of them. OTF Arial is giving me problems. Futura family and the Swiss family not showing properly.
Please is there an Adobe plugin or download to fix this problem? AI and PSD display the fonts. It's ID CS5.5 that is holding out and not displaying all my fonts.
Thank you for some advice,
I'm a Mac guy, so I won't be much help with Windows, but there is one possible explanation that I can think of. InDesign and Illustrator both have fonts folders within their application folder. If you drop fonts into the Illustrator fonts folder, those fonts will be available to Illustrator, but not to InDesign. Maybe that's not the cause of your problem, but it's worth checking out.
Also, are you using a font utility like Suitcase, or are you just letting the OS manage the fonts?
In addition to the advice to try puting the fonts inthe provate InDesign fonts folder, make sure you scroll throught the whole list in ID. Sometimes the fonts are not listed in the same order you expect.
