    InDesign Font Confusion


      I'm experiencing issues where fonts are active and thus not requested by InDesign when opening a file, but are highlighted and substituted in the file as if they're missing. This is not the first time I have seen this. This particular file was supplied in 5.5. I have also opened it in v6 with the same issues. I have also tried to export it to idml and re-open, but still the fonts are highlighted as if missing. Also went to the "Find Font", but none of the fonts in question show up as missing.



      The fonts have been run thru Font Doctor and completely checked and verified. I have also opened the fonts in Fontographer and re-saved them as TT (Originally T1), but still the same issue. I have added the fonts to my ~/fonts and also tried with them in the same directory as the InDesign file in a "Document Fonts" folder. All with the same result. I can say that this file has been set up with Paragraph styles and I'm thinking that might have something to do with this issue. I have gone into the styles and changed the font there and saved. Re-opened the style and changed the font back and that seems to clear the problem most of the time, but not always.
